Just before Thanksgiving, the city of Chicago had a festival for the holidays. They covered their doors in wreaths, handed out free popcorn & cheesecake, held a parade to light up Michigan Avenue with a lighting gun shot by Minnie & Mickey, and ended it all with a stunning fireworks show over the Chicago River.
Big A and I got out there with the best of them and fought for our bags of pop corn, we shopped, we got hot chocolate (I mean coffee) and then made our way to the top of the Wrigley Building to watch the parade from the warmth of Big A’s office. We turned on Christmas music and sat side by side to watch our city ring in the best time of the year. It did not disappoint.
