    Chicago girl through and through. Grew up swimming in Lake Michigan, listening to the Cubs and/or Frank Sinatra on the radio and eating PB and J covered in sand. Discovered my "French" side a few years back and have been exploring ever since. Aside from my parents, Marie Antoinette is my idol.

If she ever came back as a Chicagoan she'd fit right in, but would probably live in Lincoln Square and not Rogers Park like me. Follow my random-ness on Instagram and Twitter at dans_ma_tete!
