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

Been thinking of you for the past couple days, hope you are well. Miss you! DAF
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.
I kn. you would love Chicago, Bud. So much history, great restaurants, fabulous museums.
Oooh very jealous! Looks wonderful 🙂
Glad you finally got up here to see our great lake and Chicago.
The lake is so big, it might as well be an ocean. This is a fabulous city.
I loved Chicago. Make sure to go to Lou Mitchell’s. 🙂
I looked up Lou Mitchell’s, but it is too far. I can only go to places I can walk to. But I can walk to so many places.
Happy walking! 🙂
Susan, you are in my town! Which part of city/which hotel are you staying? I seriously envy you!
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.
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!
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.
Enjoy! The museums are wonderful and the pizza is great. Have fun and stay safe! DAF
I’ve seen all the major museums but the Adler (I ran out of steam), and I’ve enjoyed the food. But I have to say I like New York and Boston pizza better. The hot dogs are another story…terrific!
I am thin crust pizza person, but it was fun to have Chicago style pizza… So glad you are having a wonderful time!
Can’t beat that view! Hope you’re having a lovely time.
I am! Can’t wait to hear what you thought about the conference. Let’s get together when I get back.
Let me know when you get home. Are you back YET?! 😉
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.)
Haha, Adela. I love you, too, in a good way. Hope I get to Chicago again, and then we will plan.
Beautiful – just can’t beat a sunrise… I’ve never seen an ugly one.
I will surely miss seeing them each morning when we leave. 😦
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?
I absolutely loved the Art Institute! I would have gone twice, if it weren’t so expensive. Maybe I will order something from Bean this year, and you will answer the phone!
Wow, from your hotel window!! Gorgeous sunrise capture, Susan!
Yes, what a view every morning, Amy! First time in Chicago, and I get to see this sight first thing when I wake up. How lucky is that?
Beautiful view. 🙂
Thanks, Adin. Every morning’s sunrise is just a little bit different.
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!
Fabulous, Ingy! We loved our nearly twenty-nine years in San Antonio and will always miss that city. But I could move to Chicago in a heartbeat.
Chicago is FUN!!! I spent quite a bit of time visiting chicago in the early 2000s, Great shopping, dining and fantastic night life!!!!
If we weren’t so old, we might stay up long enough to enjoy the nightlife! LOL
