If you ask Julia and Phil about their first date, the two versions are quite different. But if you ask them about their favorites things to do together as a couple the answers are simple and sweet. Having started off as a long distance duo, Julia and Phil were happy to let us in on some of the fun things they enjoy now that they don’t have to bid farewell at the end of every weekend. We bopped around the West Loop before setting off to the North side of town for a trip to one of Chicago’s amazing gardens. We ended at their favorite spot (which happens to be their rooftop patio) where they like to take in the view and relax the day away with a moscow mule. If absence makes the heart grow fonder, these two have certainly paid their dues. We can’t help but feel the love when in their presence.
