These last gasps of Summer remind me how much I really love living near the Chicago lakefront. The second the city thaws from the frozen tundra of winter the lakefront becomes a playground of both adults and children running, walking, biking, swimming, training for fill in the blank, boating, dog walking, or just sitting and enjoying the view. Few cities in the world have beach access within walking distance from city streets. The only thing I love more than Summer in Chicago is Fall!! And knowing that the days of comfortable temperatures are numbered is GREAT motivation for squeezing THE most out of every day! You can look forward to more recipes and cooking on this blog as the winter months creep forward but until then Ill keep posting about traveling Chicago and enjoying every day! Cheers!
