I am on a little mini vacation to Chicago. Don’t try and rob me, by the time you read this I will most likely be home. But the kids are out of school, it was a dear friend’s 40th birthday, so we packed up the family and headed across the lake. If you didn’t know, I lived in Chicago for 6 years and met my hubby here. It will always hold a special place in my heart and it will always feel a bit like home. This weekend has reminded me once again why. I have spent time with dear friends, visited some old haunts and battled bottleneck traffic. Oh wait, that part I don’t miss a bit. Ugh. Seriously. But while my favorite season in Chicago is summer, there is something a bit magical about the city at Christmas. Even the kids seem to feel it.
But since we are in the Central time zone and my kids wake up in the Eastern time zone (5 am anyone?), it is a short post today. I have a fun top ten list planned for tomorrow, but in the meantime, what is your favorite city?
