Chicago: Wicker Park
I am lucky to have lots o’ friends in Chicago—friends who really span all parts of my life (grade school, college, grad school, study abroad, work, etc). Coming home from Paris and getting back to life in the suburbs felt a bit rough, so I quickly made plans to grab lunch with Sarah last Sunday to ease into being stateside.
Now that I’m planning LIFE IN CHICAGO (so excited!), I asked if we could dine in Wicker Park and explore a bit. Gotta start narrowing down my preferred neighborhoods. We had a delicious lunch at Birchwood Cafe, browsed Wicker Park Fest, & walked down some pretty streets. Ended the afternoon near Sarah’s current apartment (in Lakeview, off Southport Ave, which I also love), splitting cupcakes at the now defunct bleeding Heart bakery.
It’s tricky, because I could see living almost anywhere. Today: meeting a grad school friend (/soon-to-be co-worker) for lunch in Lincoln Square. Decisions, decisions!
