December in the City

The time has come for my annual 5-day December trip to Chicago. I look forward to the trip all year long. There's nothing better than December in Chicago...the lights, festivities, cheer, glamour, and action.

As is the case every year, my roommate Karen is on the planning committee for an annual professional conference that takes place in Chicago each December. I come along, keep her company, and reap the benefits of free accommodations just off Michigan Avenue and plenty of opportunities for bumming around the city, breakfast every morning at Fox and Obel, great shopping, coffee, running on the lake shore path, exploring, unique dining, and meeting up with old friends from high school and college. It's like five days of completely selfish, uninterrupted Kristin time.

Karen also scored tickets for us to see the Pre-Broadway US Premiere of Dirty Dancing at the Cadillac Palace Theatre on Tuesday evening. I can't wait to see it on stage...Nobody puts Baby in a corner.
