Here it is! My first blog post ever!
I’ve helped friends and businesses with their social media before, but I’ve never had my own forum to say and do as I pleased. What an exciting—and horrifying—feeling.
The truth is, the idea for this blog has been in my head for more than a decade. I flashback to my teenage years, living in Park Ridge, probably sitting in a friend’s bedroom listening to one of my beloved boy bands. “We should make a list of all the things we want to do in the city this summer?!?” But we’d just end up doing the same old thing.
Not much has changed in my life. My husband and I have been talking about taking a big trip for months—haven’t planned a thing. I can’t even get across the street to try this little restaurant that always looks so sweet and romantic when I peek in the window—too busy watching Netflix.
But 2013 is going to be different. My co-workers of nine months have reignited the spark to try something new. Or in this case, a year’s worth of new things. They are talented women with blogs and hobbies and plans to travel the globe. And not that I’m surrendering to peer pressure, but who wouldn’t want to do all of those things?
Now it’s my turn for a little self discovery in the city that I love best: Chicago. I will write (at least!) 52 posts about my adventures—new restaurants, nightlife, activities, museums, festivals, events…you name it!
I look forward to sharing the journey with you.
