I finally had some time to stroll around my new little city (life has been busy lately) and started to get familiar with the streets and main buildings. I am still in that point where if Dan left me alone in the middle of downtown without a GPS, I would certainly not be able to find my way home. Everything looks the same to me!
We might not have the beach close-by as we were used to, but there is plenty of charm here. My life routine changed completely two weeks ago, but I’m happy to say that I have embraced this change better than I thought I would. Park Ridge has meaning to me; it is the city where my man grew up and I just love to see some of the places where his best childhood memories took place. Every time we go out there is a new story to hear, something new to learn about him. So cool.
This Chicago suburb is so cozy and friendly, and I like that it has some personality attached to it. There is a magical combination of old and new, with beautiful quaint buildings lining the streets and cute boutiques to shop around. The houses are so unique too, you won’t find one similar to another.
I can’t wait for spring to arrive to see the flowers and trees blossom. It’s going to be wonderful!
PS: I’m obsessed with these picture frames – aren’t they cute? I totally need one.
Have a great day!
