Happy One Year Anniversary to me and my wonderful city! Though I had some major reservations about moving here, I am quite sure that I made the right decision and I couldn't be happier. I love so many things about Chicago. Here are a few:
*public transit- though it is very far from perfect, it is available and fairly efficient which is more than I can say about other cities in which I have resided
*the gorgeous and accessible lake shore harbors and beaches
*lake shore trail
*bicycle friendliness and Bike Ambassadors (and not just because my roomie is one!)
*Music Box Theatre
*Wishbone Southern Reconstruction Restaurant
*Boystown and Andersonville
*Drs. Ann Russo, Beth Catlett, Allison McCracken and Francesca Royster
*the history and contemporary art museums- and the fact that all public museums have a free day for residents of the city!
There are so many things but I think the thing I love the most is just the feeling that I have living here. It isn't easy to describe but I feel very independent and comfortable... There isn't a word for how I feel walking down the gorgeous streets of Lakeview at night. I just love it.
