Good morning, Chicago

My grandpa turns 80 years old on Sunday. As I make my way to the Florida Keys to celebrate with him (and many other family members), I can't help but reflect on the countless memories we've had together. In every sense of the word, my grandfather has lived a "big" life - marrying my wonderful grandmother, raising 6 healthy children, achieving success in business and investing, traveling the world many times over, spoiling his 15 grandchildren with lavish trips, lots of laughs, and unconditional love...He's taught me a lot of big lessons on how to live a full life and be good. It's funny, though, how the *smallest* memories seem to stand tallest, like this one.
My mentions of "Rome" or studying abroad are often (understandably) met with eye rolls - "Come on, you studied abroad 7 years ago! Get over it!" As long as these wonderful, drunken people are in my life, though, I will *never* get over it. How could I?
Congratulations to my dear friends @sarahstahurski and @themartysr. We couldn't be happier for you two.
