Happy Thanksgiving!

Friends, I finally made it to the Thanksgiving parade downtown. After living here all these years, it finally happened and I am so glad! My nephew and I got up early, took the train downtown and enjoyed every minute of parade goodness. We had a phenomenal spot, right on the curb with the train station behind us so no one could stand behind us. With a salted caramel mocha in hand, we watched as the balloons passed under the train tracks and popped back up in front of us. Easily my favorite Chicago Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! Much love to all of you, friends, and of course to my family back home on the East Coast! Wish we could be there!


  1. I'm so jealous! When I lived in NYC, I went home to San Diego for Thanksgiving and my sister's wedding, so I couldn't go the parade. It must have been so fun!

  2. Looks like such a fun time!! You are braver than I am. I hate huge crowds, so I generally avoid big parades and such, although I know they're probably really fun!

  3. How fun! I've always wanted to be there in person and watch it every year.
