Last 4th of July we spent it at the Ritz Carlton in Chicago. What started as a seemingly great idea, oh so wasn’t. It was the perfect storm coming together. One of our dogs hates the 4th with all the loud noises, and the Ritz has really cheap rooms on the holiday. I mean really cheap. We stayed in this huge suite and this was one of our views. Its wasn’t an Oprah view, but it was fine. The view was great, but it just wasn’t for us. This year, we have no plans. Probably for the best. Still it was a nice view.
