For the first time in months, I am well rested! Well. not really. However, I am quite happy I got a chance to get out of the city and unwind for a few days. Each year, I try to get away to a new city and recharge, and recharge I did. Chicago is a great city that plays out on scale that makes one thankful for GPS. I am glad to be back home and now that I am fully recharged, I’m ready to get back to doing what I do!
