Welcome to my blog about the great city of Chicago and various life-enhancing topics. My name is Christine. I’ve been reporting on Chicago in an online column for six years. Here I’ll be updating and re-posting some of those articles plus adding new material.

I see my blog as a contribution: When I find something worthwhile, I like to share it with others. There is plenty going on in Chicago; there’s no excuse not to have fun in this city. Also, when I learn something that has improved my life, I like to share that as well, so I sometimes write on topics that contribute to health, happiness and well-being. I have a life-long interest in wellness and got my degree in nutrition. Whatever can make life — and maybe even this world — better: That’s what I’m all about.

What qualifies me to write about Chicago? I’ve lived right in the heart of downtown Chicago for decades and I love it. I’m like a tourist in my own city because there’s so much to see and do, fascinating people and always something new. Plus it’s simply a stunning, gorgeous, exciting place to live or visit. Come explore with me the depths of all this city has to offer…and enrich your life!
