Visitors Came. Visitors Went. I Made Cookies.

Visitors came from Minnesota to visit (yours truly).

Visitors (and yours truly) saw the sites of wonderful, wonderful Chicago.

Visitors (and yours truly) ate lots of amazing food in Chicago.
Went here. And here. And here. And here.

Visitors left. Yours truly is now with a void in her soul, an emptiness in her apartment, and a need for cookies.

Cookies! Cookies! Cookies!

These’ll do the trick I think.
