Last weekend I traveled to Chicago on a business trip. Visiting Northwestern University, especially in the fall, was such a magical experience. The area is beautiful and the campus is absolutely whimsical. Aside from supporting my student-athletes, the highlights of the trip were visiting the Starbucks truck and stumbling upon the most adorable bookstore, Bookends and Beginnings. It was a wonderful trip and I appreciated the short amount of time away from Washington, DC.
