Chicago Bound

As you read this I am likely on a plane, possibly flying somewhere directly over you...that is kind of a creepy thought. ..to see my bestie in the new city she calls home, Chicago!  As some of you may know, I grew up in Iowa so Midwest winters aren't new to me.  However, after 10 years in Portland, I'm not so sure that my body knows how to handle the cold anymore.  I left Iowa for many reasons, but I would say getting away from the snow was pretty high up on my list.  So of course the Midwest has to play a cruel joke on me and it started snowing in Chicago yesterday.

Only April, and her promises of a liquor store in the lobby of her apartment building and adventures to an abandoned drive-in theater could get me to visit at this time of year so don't any of you back in Iowa start getting ideas.

I'm sure I have many adventures ahead of me from the moment my plane lands until it takes off again.  If you want to keep up with them, follow me on Instagram.  Otherwise, you will have to wait until I return to Portland and have a real computer in front of me again. 

April and I back in 2007 or 2008 illegally skating through the subways of NYC.  Us Portlanders didn't see the problem.
