The "Girl" in question here is Liz.  That's me.  I'm a Chicago-born lover of Chicago--and I currently reside...not in Chicago. Los Angeles County, actually. But I make do.  I'm a teacher by trade and a writer/performer/encourager by passion. My writing has been featured in publications such as Newsweek, Latina magazine, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Daily News, San Gabriel Valley Tribune, and on Chicago Public Radio. To me, the things that matter most are God, people, and the Love of My Life...Chicago. Until Chicago and I can meet in person once again, there is this here Chicago + Girl = Love. A place for me to express said love. And to "be" in Chicago. If only in my heart.

Here's my very first post: http://www.chicagonow.com/chicago-girl-love/2012/03/and-so-it-begins-a-tale-of-a-chicago-love-affair/
