The beautiful city of wind

And here are some images from one of my most fave cities...Chicago!  I have had the great fortune the past three years to go to a national Food Bank conference there, and I always have a great time!

I LOVE the architecture, LOVE the changing leaves in the fall, and the SNOW!  I also LOVE the fact that public transportation is so easy to use!  I was so proud of myself when I took the bus from my friend's street (with my giant suitcase), through town, to the train stop, and on the train to the plane!  And basically for FREE!  I purchased a 24-hour fun pass the day before and had used the value already in 2 bus rides!  Hello, Beaumont, at least put in some sidewalks :)

  And no...You are NOT dreaming, this is actually Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany's) and a real-life unicorn.  They were spotted out on the town the night of Halloween, oddly enough...

Thanks to my new friend Heather for opening her adorable home to me the last weekend.  I had a Mah-velous time dahling!  And if you've never been to Chi-town, go ASAP!!
