Welcome to Living’s as Easy as 312! Because we are in the swing of summer in Chicago, and because I am in between chapters in my life, I decided to start my first blog. I want this blog to capture everything that I love about life and living in Chicago. Growing up in the suburbs, coming to the city was a treat, filled with shopping, museums, and the inevitable stop at the American Girl Store for an outfit one of my four American Girl dolls had to have, like a second ice skating outfit or a helmet for riding the velvet horse I named Bambi. Now, however, as I am a young adult living in Chicago and coming into my own skin, I want to make the most of what Chicago has to offer. Let the good times roll.
