My apologies for the radio silence! The pug and I officially moved to Chicago on Sunday evening and it has been a whirlwind ever since. I absolutely love my new neighborhood, the Gold Coast, and everything seems to be falling into place. My friend and her husband live a few floors down and they’d already picked up my keys, unrolled my new Casper mattress (it’s like sleeping on a cloud!), and ordered in Lou Malnati’s. Needless to say, it was the perfect first night. My apartment is just a studio, but has three closets, big windows, and a beautiful view of Lake Michigan. Everyone here is so friendly, the food is spectacular (so far I’ve hit up Fred’s at Barneys, Longman & Eagle, and Lost Lake…), and the architecture takes my breath away. Flat Rate Moving arrives with my boxes from New York this afternoon. I can’t wait to finally unpack and get all settled. I have such a good feeling about this place. Cheers to new beginnings!
