garfield park conservatoryWell well, Chicago, it looks like you decided to have winter after all, but luckily these Moroccan vibes are getting me through the day! One of my favorite hidden gems in the city is the Garfield Park Conservatory. It is way bigger than the Lincoln Park one and there are so many rooms full of such luscious plants and flowers. I do love visiting both of them though. It’s a great place to warm up and feel like you’re on vacation.

This fountain gives me all the Moroccan vibes. Morocco is a place I want to visit, so hopefully that will be happening soon. My spring break is also coming up and for once, I haven’t planned anything yet. I’m hoping I’ll find a last minute deal somewhere warm so I don’t have to keep visiting the conservatory, but that wouldn’t be a bad thing either. I’m definitely in a travel and summer mood though, so any recommendations are welcomed!

Have a wonderful week everybody and stay warm!
