Hello from Chicago! Well, actually, I've prescheduled this post because my sister has decreed that There Shalt Be No Laptops on Family Holidays, but I'm in Chicago nonetheless and, if I could, I would be saying hello and good morning to you all.
I'm not actually sure why we're in Chicago, to be honest. I think my aunt is from here originally, and she and my uncle invited us along for the long weekend. Of course, I'm not complaining - I've only been to Chicago twice and both visits were very brief, so I'm really looking forward to exploring the city more. Mark, my mother's brother, has lots of plans for us: we've got a few museums on the itinerary plus a boat tour and a couple of yummy restaurants as well as time to wander some of the parks. One of the things I'm most excited about, though, is tomorrow night's awesomeness. We happen to be in town during the Chicago Blues Festival and Ribfest Chicago - and I am going to hit up both even if I have to cut myself in half! (Top half, the eating mouth and stomach half, will go to Ribfest; the bottom half, the dancing legs half, will go to the Blues Festival. I've thought this out carefully.) My planned outfit won't really work in pieces, though, so I really am hoping that I can just hop from one party to the other. What do you think, Chicago readers? Possible? Please say yes!
