  Monday Morning Mirth  

No Mirth is larger at Chez Chic than the happiness that comes from one’s friends. That joy was in grand supply yesterday in Chicago as I joined my dear friend Diane to celebrate her 1.5 year anniversary of being cancer free, in a Cancer Survivor Walk with thousands of others at the lakefront.


WHAT could be more exciting than a walk along the beauty that is Lake Michigan? Why, for two chic baseball chicks, running into the International Celebrity Spokesperson for the Chicago White Sox, none other than SouthPaw! Here we are surrounded by all His Mighty ginourmous Chartruese goodness!


Our five mile walk started in Grant Park and it wound it’s way around one of the best parts of the lakefront.

It was a clear, warm day and being near the water filled me with happiness like it always does; I saw the faces of courage and determination everywhere I turned, the survivors in purple, their friends and family in white, together, moving in a perfect wave of joy.


At the finish, we were treated to a picnic lunch and entertainment by singers, speakers AND the thrilling marvelous Jesse White Tumblers.

SUMMER now officially begins with a mighty LEAP!

    Thanks, babe. I appreciate that.

    There is something so RIGHT about you standing next to a giant chartruese baseballer.

    He looks like Wally the green monster. The Other Sox mascot.
