Default chicago was THE BEST!!!!

and the stories will unfold over the next couple of days as people get back to their normal lives.

it felt as if we've known each other FOREVER. lots and LOTS of talking,. and laughing. and walking. and good food [yes, there was good food!!!]

and we even hit the gym [and forgot to take pics!!!]

sandi's pics never do her justice... she's gorgeous... jilleagle is warm. charming. lovely. smart. and beverly is elegant [oh stop blushing!] and SO KIND!!!!

<sigh> i'd do it again in a heartbeat.

more later. gotta start the third load of laundry and get alzheimers mom fed.

Hi all! What a perfect weekend! I couldn't have asked for better weather or a more wonderful group of women to spend it with. You ARE cute Jiff (and I was paying attention, I promise! ) I am so grateful that I had the chance to get to know these beautiful, insightful, hilariously funny women in person.

Now I think I need a vacation from my vacation, I ache everywhere too! Well, I'm off to work, I just wanted to check in quickly this morning before I had to go. More later!

Beverly

Hi, just checking in for a moment (my friend's grumbling that she didn't invite me to Ohio just so I could go online!)

I fully intend to write a long-winded report about the windy city as soon as I get home. For now, I just have time to say thank you to "zee gurls" for providing me with a weekend I'll cherish forever. The weather was great, the city was awesome and the company was utterly amazing. I still can't believe we crammed so much activity into one weekend...and yes, I'm sore too! Ain't life grand??

It sounds like you had a fab time!

Maybe as an added bonus you'll all have lost some pounds aswell, if your aches and pains are anything to go by!

I'd love to hear more about it!

Love Amanda x
