Chicago Sunrise

This is what I see from our hotel window every morning. First time in Chicago, and I’m loving it!

About Coming East

I am a writer, wife, mother, and grandmother who thinks you're never too old until you're dead. My inspiration is Grandma Moses who became a successful artist in her late 70's. If I don't do something pretty soon, though, I'll have to find someone older for inspiration.

      Yes, I am quite well physically, DAF, but I don’t know where my mind has been lately. I’ve taken an I intended vacation from blogging. Just can’t seem to get myself in gear. But I am trying to get back into it. Thanks for thinking about me!

    I’ve passed through Chicago a million times but never visited. Maybe we’ll have to try it.

  3. Oooh very jealous! Looks wonderful 🙂

  4. Huffygirl says:

    Glad you finally got up here to see our great lake and Chicago.

  5. I loved Chicago. Make sure to go to Lou Mitchell’s. 🙂

    Susan, you are in my town! Which part of city/which hotel are you staying? I seriously envy you!

    • Coming East says:

      I am absolutely in love with this city, Jiawei. We are at the Hilton Chicago, across from Grant Park. We’re about to leave, though, and I will miss this beautiful place. I would live at the Field Museum and the Art Institute if we lived here. The wind does get to me a little bit, and I know it will be much worse as the weather gets colder.

      • Jiawei says:

        Susan, you are so lucky! Those places, the Field Museum, the Art Institute, and the Grant Park area stir up such memory. I used to take the kids there a lot. Have you been to Lincoln Park? That’s one of the most beautiful parks, it’s free, too. Our house is not far from there. Too bad you are leaving. I wish I were there to show you around!

      • Coming East says:

        Oh, how I would have loved to see your city with you, Jiawei. No, I didn’t make it to Lincoln Park. I wish I had had time to visit the zoo. When my kid were little, they always wanted to go to the Lincoln Park Zoo and the Bozo show because we watched the Bozo show in San Antonio.

  7. Enjoy! The museums are wonderful and the pizza is great. Have fun and stay safe! DAF

    Can’t beat that view! Hope you’re having a lovely time.

  9. I love Chicago. The museums, the concerts, the view, and most of all the people. So glad I’m just a metra ride away. Wish I knew you were coming. I could have arranged to meet you in person. You know I love you. (In the good way; not the stalker way.)

    Beautiful – just can’t beat a sunrise… I’ve never seen an ugly one.

  11. WOW, lucky you!! Beautiful view, wonderful city. You must, must, must take a few minutes out of your schedule to visit the Art Institute of Chicago Museum and plop yourself on a bench in front of Seurat’s “Sunday Afternoon On The Island of Grande Jatte.” Started back at LLB today… do you hear those sleigh bells ringing?

  12. Amy says:

    Wow, from your hotel window!! Gorgeous sunrise capture, Susan!

    As Sinatra says, “Chicago, It’s My Kind of Town!”

    I had the privilege of living there with my husband and two children for almost seven years. We moved back to San Antonio a year and a half ago, but have had an empty space in my ❤ for that amazing city. Thankfully my husband’s job is taking us back! He moves next week and the rest of us in April. Enjoy your time there!

  14. Chicago is FUN!!! I spent quite a bit of time visiting chicago in the early 2000s, Great shopping, dining and fantastic night life!!!!

Let me hear your thoughts. They are important to me.
