My Thoughts On Our Shoreline Sightseeing Chicago River Tour

It is always really cool to experience your town in a different way. I've lived here in Chicago for about 15 years, but we don't spend a ton of time downtown.

Make the holidays feel warmer with SOL ALPACA

Oh, the weather outside is frightful here in Chicago. It feels like we went from barely fall to the deep depths of winter. Depending on where you live here in Illinois determines the amount of snow you got this last weekend. I got several inches, but further north got up to a foot! If you […]
