6 Reasons Why Chicago is My Favorite City

It started with a field trip in elementary school. Don’t remember which grade. Can’t say for certain what we visited. (Most likely that big ol’ Museum of Science and Industry.) What I do know? We took a bus to downtown Chicago and little girl me was IN AWE. Now, I’d been to Chicago as a …

I don’t know about you, but I’m always torn between old standbys and trying something new. Whether ordering dinner at a restaurant or deciding where to travel, the struggle IS real. It’s especially real when it comes to my beach time. Here in Florida, we’re never more than 60 miles from the shore, and I’m …
