Sweet Home Chicago!
We had the opportunity to spend this past weekend in a very nice hotel right on the Magnificent Mile! Not only the excitement of that, but the city is alive with the pre-Christmas bustle and Mickey Mouse coming to light the trees along Michigan Avenue with much fanfare at the Light Festival Parade...which we saw and experienced firsthand with our immediate family! After a delicious meal at Bice, we walked over to State Street to see the windows in the place formerly known as Marshall Field's (don't get me started on this one!) and saw the Mary Poppins windows, then took the escalator all the way up to the Walnut Room to see the huge tree there designed by Vera Wang. Happy holidays to one and all!
