My little sister Kate is all grown up and living in the big city!! She got a job this summer after she graduated from school, and she is now a nurse at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in downtown Chicago. It was her dream to land a job in the Windy City, she set her mind to it and she made it there, which is pretty impressive!! She lives in Lincoln Park, a fantastic neighborhood that is about a 5-minute walk to the lake and has a great view of the skyline. I flew out to visit her during the first weekend in December, so the entire city was decorated in Christmas lights, it was beautiful. I tried to learn the bus system but failed, and I also have decided that I will never complain that 40 degrees is cold again. EVER. I have never felt cold like I did on the shore of Lake Michigan in December. It did snow while I was there, and that was so pretty to see!!
I am very proud of my little sister and everything she is doing now that she's in the "real world" - and I can't wait to get back and visit in the SUMMER and head to the beach on the lake!!
