Chicago Architecture

When I think of the things I love most about Chicago …

People often ask me what I miss most and that’s easy: the people. I have friends from my entire life, schools, jobs, neighbors, organizations, etc. Food comes in second.

What I didn’t realize I missed was the architecture. As a few friends mentioned this week, it’s a beautiful city with a distinct skyline and truly no adjective does justice to its beauty. When we went on our visit in midSeptember, we took the Wendella Architectural River Cruise and it was even better than I had imagined it would be. I love my city even though it’s no longer my home.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" features a creative and curious girl who loves science, her little brother, and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a MG novel and several picture books with STEM elements and dogs.

  1. I have fond memories of visiting my sister’s family in Chicago during the summer many, many moons ago. We always had so much fun there -The Taste of Chicago, Chicago-style pizza, and this little hotdog place off Laramie (I think).
    As I read, if made me think of my hometown and how much it has changed. Whenever we visit, we usually find out that something is gone and/or something new has come. Cities are a lot like writing…always under revision.

    1. Thanks for sharing your memories and I love your analogy to writing. So many wonderful hot dog places in Chicago! I picked up lunch from the place my friends and I frequented after school growing up and it’s still run by the same family. 🚫ketchup!

  2. Next year, come during the Chicago Open House – October 14-15. Over 100 places to see on your own schedule – some have rooftop gardens and beautiful views!
