When in Lake Geneva…

September 10, 2013 in I Adore What I Love, The Travel Bug
This past weekend, Isaiah and I went to Lake Geneva to continue my birthday celebration!  We were actually supposed to go to dinner at Del Frisco’s in the Chi on Saturday night but I was pleasantly surprised with a quick trip to Wisconsin instead.  Having been to Lake Geneva a few times over the years, I am happy to report this trip was the best yet.  And with me coming home super late from work these days and feeling like I hardly see Isaiah anymore, it was fun to have some alone time, catch up with one another, and be somewhere different than Chicago for a short, but sweet, vacay away.  We shopped, we ate ice cream, we walked all around the town, and we took an hour boat tour half-way around the lake!  In the late afternoon, I ended up taking a much-needed 2-hour nap outside at the pool!  This trip was especially special because while there, we realized that the first time we drove down was four years earlier for my 25th birthday…
and we weren’t even dating then!  Now I’m 29 and we’re married!  So crazy!
In honor of all the reminiscing, here are some pictures of Isaiah and I during our trips to Lake Geneva over the years :)
