One week from today marks the last day I will be living on a beautiful tree-lined street in the Gold Coast. For the past 7 years, I have had the joy of experiencing the windy city through its differing neighborhoods. It all started in Wrigleyville (a quaint and cozy walk-up), to a hip Wicker Park space (a small hidden gem above a laundry mat), onward to a Streeterville high-rise (Nordstrom across the street *see ya paycheck*), then to a Gold Coast mid-rise on a breathtaking street (gorgeous, vintage home with a wood-burning fireplace and more charm than George Clooney). Now, I am currently headed to a spacious Ukranian Village rehabbed 3-flat (patio, patio, patio!)

As I reminisce on all of my wonderful experiences, I would like to share 3 of my favorite places from each neighborhood in hopes that you might love them, too.
