Chicago

What a whirlwind of a trip.
It still seems unreal that I even went.
Everyday went by so fast and so much fun was had.

I loved the walking everywhere and seeing the city in the Fall.
The colors and crispness of the streets...sigh.

The shopping is always amazing.
I stopped first in my sisters Dethrose Studio to do a private shopping spree.
Got this amazing Navajo Jacket...so many people stopped me and asked where I found it.
Then it was on to dancing til 2:30 am at the infamous Neo.
Man, what a great place for people watching.

The following day was a ton of shopping from 11 am til 10 pm we shopped.
We shopped new, vintage and antique. I covered all my bases.

We wrapped up the weekend by doing Vintage Heaven.   A cool vintage sale with some amazing vendors.

Just waking up each morning with this as my view was so amazing.
I miss this city so much and would love to live and raise my son in a place were people are still kind to one another and have mid-west values.  The neighborhood parks on every other corner called my name.  I just had visions of my son really enjoying this lifestyle of fresh air and other children out playing.   Living in a flat such as this...
Maybe one day life will change and get us out of the desert.
