After 7 years in Florida, I may have found my go to places and acclimated to the temperatures here, but I will forever and always be a Chicago girl. Although many cities have come close (notably Seattle and San Fran), Chicago will always top my list of best cities in the United States. I love the parks, the museums, the food, the plays and musicals, the easy to access public transportation, the sports teams, the profusion of spring flowers, the quirks of each neighborhood, and of course the people. And to get my fill between trips back home, here are some Chicago themed picks to proclaim my adoration:
|necklace | t-shirt | cuff|
I'm pretty sure I'm going to cave on the shirt, I just love it. The necklace has been on my wish list for a while too.
|city print | adler poster | papercut card | heart map|
The city print is a new discovery, but I'm quite taken with it. The Adler Planetarium poster is the perfect combination of vintage chic and space geekery (so me!). And the papercut of Lake Michigan with a star representing Chicago is actually a card, but I think it would be so great framed and hung!famous deep dish pizza for long distance consumption!
