Hi. My name is Nina. I am crazy about Chicago, my husband, and our cat, Luna Bell (listed in no particular order). You will be hard-pressed to find anyone who loves Christmas as much as I do and I have invested many, many hours in my hunt for the perfect donut- what can I say, I am willing to take one for the team.

I’m a runner and a yogi and don’t think there’s much better than a really great nap. I adore hosting elaborate dinner parties and takeout on paper plates is just as good as long as there are people I love around my table. I have killed every basil plant that I have ever owned. There are always fresh flowers and red wine in my house, Broadway show tunes and rapping are my party tricks and one day this blog might become “Just an Italian Girl” because picking up and moving to Italy feels like it’s always around the corner.

Welcome to Just a Chi Town Girl- dressed up or dressed down, life is pretty damn good.
