Not sure I knew you grew up near Chicago? We just moved to the South Loop about a month ago and I'm already head over heels in love with this town!

I didn't know you grew up near Chicago! I really want to go there - it seems like such a cool, down to earth city. And the Bulls are my favorite team. I sorta have a crush on Joakim Noah?
