Last week I met up with Julianne, who happens to be the current 1st runner up to Miss Washington 2016 USA .

SO. COOL.

We met up at Glazed and Infused in River North – her choice (yes, beauty queens eat!). We stayed there for about 15 minutes chatting and getting to know each other. Then, we were off. But first, the obligatory donut-as-an-eye picture:

Doesn’t everyone do this?

She had been to Chicago before, but there were places she hadn’t seen. So we took an impromptu long walk toward Millennium Park.

Then, we had to check out the Chicago Theater on State Street.

And then, just like that we were at The Bean (“My mom will be so happy that I saw this!“).

I think she ❤’d Cloud Gate. 🙂

We both had to get back, so we walked back down Michigan Avenue toward her hotel. As we were walking, I told her I was glad that she was a “smiling” model. As much as I appreciate the “serious model face” (sometimes it does help the picture), I’m going to try to push my future subjects to show me teeth.

Smiles are the best

See? 😀

[Of course, the next night I went to dinner and took several pictures of my friend Val…and there were no smiles. Oops.]
