I was just so touched by all of the well wishes, sweet gifts, caring cards, and big, big hugs.
We had a back room at Theory in River North and Joel had a few bottles of champagne waiting for us upon arrival to cheers our night!
Even some of my college girlies made the trip from Iowa to Chicago for one night to give me their love.
And my Chicago besties got Joel and I a going away gift.....and they sure do know me well.....because we they gifted us with a dinner at Villa Blanca. How cute is that?!
I really can't describe how loved I feel by my friends in Chicago. I'm going to miss them so much, but I know that when I'm lonely in California I will have endless amounts of love and support from the great Midwest.
