Goodbye Pretty City


a new city on my list of favorites

this is my last post about this visit

but I can continue for weeks ~ I think this city is very photogenic and pretty so I took hundreds of pictures

from beautiful downtown and it's metro stations

to lovely neighborhoods like Wicker Park, Bucktown, Old Town and Lincoln Park

I can recommend it all

lunch at cafe Milk and Honey ~ across the street from Nina's beautiful shop, a perfect combination

coffee and sweets at TipsyCake

take out dinner from the Goddess and Grocer

fill your home with flowers from a new leaf

and I must admit

both these pretty homes and the gorgeous flower shop do remind me of Amsterdam...

bye bye beautiful Chicago ~ hope to see you again soon


for you sweeties in the Netherlands, enjoy the amazing winter weather, ice skating and sun

wishing you all an amazing weekend!


  1. Hello, I’ve nominated you for the Verstile Blogger Award, feel free to visit me and collect! Greets, Karen.

  2. This is my city, it's where I am from and live! I must say you picked a handful of the best places to eat and shop...some of my faves. Glad you enjoyed your visit!

  3. Hi, Maakie! Love your pictures! Beautiful! Thank you for sharing :o)
    Take care

  4. I love Chicago too, my favorite town. I grew up in Chicago and the city is very different now than it was in the 60's . @0 years ago I would never have walked around Wicker Park or Bucktown, but now I love to take long walks around the city. My son lives in Hyde Park [ by University of Chicago] and my brother lives in Bucktown. Glad you enjoyed the city. I hope to be walking the sidewalks and soaking all of the beautiful city in around tulip time.


~ sweet thank you for your lovely words ~
