Chicago With the Girls

Saturday, 24 October 2009

Van Gogh, Monet and Frank Lloyd Wright are just some of the "artists" with work on display at the Art Institute of Chicago.  Mel, Casey and I walked around, took photos and came away inspired to be creative.  We also went to The Gage on Michigan Avenue for a tasty brunch.  Omelet with feta, oregano, basil and tomatoes.  Yummy.

Last night we ate sushi at Coast, dessert at Hot Chocolate and went for a drink at Bluebird.

We're having such a fun time catching up and hearing about how life has changed.  The three of us have been friends for 12 years!

Chicago is a happening town but it is chilly and windy.  I didn't bring enough warm clothes.  Perhaps a lovely glass of buttery Shiraz will help with the cold.

I have often dreamed of being alive in Chicago during the 1920's. I find the flapper and gangster to be fascinating. I was born in the wrong time period. LOL. I need to visit before too long.
