A Reader Meet-up in Chicago


Logan is heading to a work conference in Chicago at the beginning of September, and I'm tagging along. While Logan is conferencing, I'll explore the city and take lots of photos. We'll have three full days in Chicago, and I can't wait to check out the museums, libraries, parks, and coffee shops.

I almost didn't go on this adventure, but friends and family encouraged me to visit the Windy City. Buying experiences, instead of things is in alignment with my life philosophy, and I'm happy we have a savings account dedicated to travel expenses. It's given me the opportunity to take unplanned trips, like this, and also be intentional about saving for travel.

I'd love to host a reader meet-up in Chicago. Before I schedule a date and time, I want to find out if there are readers in Chicago (or in outlying areas) who want to meet and chat about living simply, happiness, everyday adventures, and good coffee.

Leave a comment below or email me, tammy@rowdykittens.com, and let me know if you're interested in meeting up!

UPDATE . . .

Thanks for your interest in the Chicago meet-up! I’ll be hosting an informal meet-up on Thursday evening. It will be a great opportunity to connect with like-minded people and to chat about living simply, happiness, everyday adventures, and good coffee! I hope to see you in the city!

Date: Thursday, September 3, 2015 Time: 5-8pm Location: Overflow Coffee Bar
