Still, and with the worst plane ride ever, it is good to be home.
Home to sunshine, tulips, fresh eggs, and weeds. The next time I move for a month it will be under an umbrella on the beach. I did, however, find a few gems in Chicago. My favorites:
Beat Kitchen -Live music every Sunday at noon on stage with a beer.
The L Train- The clank-a-tee-clank is unmistakable and fun.

Posh - European/ flea market cool
Vintage Pine- unique until you realize you need a boxcar to take anything here home- go across the street to Whole Foods and drink a glass of wine while you buy diapers and mac and cheese
Renegade Handmade- of course
Greer Chicago - awesome selection of letterpress cards and the like oozing out of vintage library card holders
Ruxpin - bonus poster art in the bathroom, awesome food and attitude. Had my first wine delivery by bike, thanks to the Noble Grape
Chalkboard- treated us like rock stars. Perfect food.
Rootstock Wine Bar - best wine list, and we looked everywhere, but tried to seat us next to the bathroom because we were just drinking...we did read wine bar right?
Dark Cloud - Om to the dark one. How I worship thee.
