I have to say, I admire Danielle SO much. She’s incredibly genuine and sweet, but is also extremely hard working and successful. As many of you probably know, she has her own blog, Breakfast at Toast, and also co-founded the Forbes-award winning site, The Everygirl. Every time I remember that she moved to Chicago on whim a few years ago (without knowing a soul!) I get so inspired by what can happen in your life if you open yourself up to change. Needless to say, we’re thrilled to have her here today to share some Chicago favorites.

I always have a hard time pinpointing my favorite time of year, as I love different seasons for different reasons. If pressed, however, I believe that right now is truly my favorite. I love stepping outside on a dewey evening, to be surrounded with the scent that is summer. Dusk is the most enchanting time of day, when the hectic daytime activities come to a halt, and you can enjoy the cool evening air, while the fading sun leaves a blazing pink path in the sky. There’s no better way…
