chicago.jpgFor my fourth wedding anniversary, my hubby and I are planning a weeklong trip to one of our favorite cities, Chicago. My parents lived there while I was in college and I discovered it’s definitely my kind of town! I love the architecture, the shopping, the museums, the food, the shopping, the sporting events, the nature…did I mention the shopping? The Magnificent Mile is beyond words but there are even more places like State Street, Oak Street and Armitage Ave. to browse around and enjoy. Hopefully, I can convince Adrian to devote at least one afternoon to exploring around boutiques and fab flagship stores. A couple places that are on my must-visit list are: Habit, an eclectic boutique featuring up and coming designers; Jayson Home and Garden, a beautiful store with vintage housewares; p.45, a sleek shop with items from established, emerging and local designers; Endo-Exo Apothecary, a fabulous beauty store with hard to find labels and of course the always chic Active Endeavors.  If you’re in the Chicagoland area or are familiar with Chi-town, then feel free to give me a heads up on any other places that may strike my fancy!

    My absolute favorite city!! 🙂 Make sure to check out the restaurant Bandera on Michigan Ave across from Virgin Records. The sashimi tuna and salmon are amazing. Then don’t forget to grab some Garett’s popcorn. 🙂 Have fun!!

    CHICAGO!!! Hooray!
    Happy Anniversary!

    You must visit Blue Mercury and all the other cool boutiques in the Armitage /Lincoln Park area. There are also all sorts of awesome shops on Southport by Clark. Oh and Josephines for shoes in Old Town. The Powder Room is also awesome for niche beauty products in Lincoln Park.

    You and your hubby should also try to hit a Second City Show while in Chicago…oh and Cafe Babareba for tapas!

    You will have so much fun!
    If you ever come to Chicago and you are not on a romantic anniversary trip–we must meet for shopping!!!

    Have so much fun!!!
