I love Chicago. If I thought I could handle the winters they face there, I would seriously be tempted to trek up north. However since there is a reason I live in the South, I will settle for visiting as often as possible.
It’s not very often I get to have companions on my trips, but when I do the company is wonderful. One of my best friends, Kassi, and I were catching up over dinner in February when I mentioned an upcoming trip to Chicago in April. We talked about how much fun it would be if she could join me and before we knew it, she bought herself a ticket that night.
