Chicago

Last year in October we took a quick trip to Chicago and tried to cram in as much of the city as we could!

We stayed at the McCormick Place Convention Center.

When we visited it was a day or two after Steve Jobs passed away. Outside of the apple store were crowds of people leaving letters, apples, post-its, and lighting candles in his memory.

Everyone knows Chicago pizza as the Deep Dish and every person you ask who has been will recommend a different pizza place as their favorite, you have to start somewhere so we chose Giordano’s

WARNING you will be waiting…..most likely outside with crowds of others, I think the longer  the wait means the better the taste ;-)

Side Note: I have been entrepreneurial minded for as long as I can remember but was “stuck” many years in dead end jobs which caused me to personally stop growing and living life. I am in Network Marketing now with a business that promotes self growth every day and realizing your FULL potential! I LOVE Self Improvement and made a promise to myself never to stop learning and living again contact me for more information!
