I would be crazy not to wish my love, Chicago, a happy 180th birthday today!!! (Not to mention it was my handsome hubby and his twin’s birthday on Thursday!)
In honor of the Windy City’s big day, I thought I would share some (13, because it’s my lucky number) of my favorite city moments in the past year:
Celebrating our buddy Graham’s first birthday at A Little Photo Studio.
Chicago farmers markets! Any and all!
Having pear sorbet for the first time at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream.
Impromptu lunch at Green Street Smoked Meats! One of my favorites.
Breakfast dates at Summer House Santa Monica.
Checking out the street art in our neighborhood.
Moving! (Ok, not my favorite at all, but a big moment nonetheless…)
Watching my brother run in the Chicago Marathon!
Trick or treating with Wayne and Snow White on Halloween!
Taking in the view from the rooftop at our apartment building.
Celebrating the Cubs winning the World Series with my friends/co-workers!!!
Visiting the beautiful Christmas tree with friends — a tradition! — at The Walnut Room.
Parents night out at a private holiday party at Publican Quality Meats!
Happy birthday, Chicago. Can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us! Xo
