I had a free day in my teaching schedule so my husband and I spent today exploring Chicago and I have to say...WOW...I think I am in love! What a wonderful city- from the tourist attractions, to the architecture, to the public art, galleries, gardens, fountains, food and more- Chicago totally rocks!
