Happy Halloween to you and yours, both small and tall.
(Lilly has been begging for scary, frightening Halloween decor all over the
porch. B-E-G-G-I-N-G. I caved today, post school pick-up, about 3:30 pm.
Imagine, if you will, the pre-tween power struggle over the right "look"
for ticky tacky spooky decor among the aisles, at CVS.)
What fun we had dreaming up this gorgeous, mouth watering
Thanksgiving-scape with Lynne Bredfeldt, pr guru, Park Hyatt Chicago and
all things uber fabulous.
Isn’t it simply delicious?
NoMi’s private dining room not only creates the picture perfect backdrop
for any holiday celebration, it affords the ultimate Chicago bird’s eye
view of our legendary watertower.
And then – let’s talk about Chef Sean.
Do you KNOW how amazing that herbed turkey smelled, right out of the oven?
Just as good as it looks, I dare say.
Finally, Pastry Chef Meg.
Her sweets knocked my socks off.
And post six weeks, Paris patisserie stalking, that’s really saying
Want to see more NoMi, Park Hyatt, Lynne Bredfeldt, Chef Sean, Chef Meg

We are sending massive loads of prayers and best wishes to our east coast
family and friends, riding out Hurricane Sandy up and down the east coast.
As our friend said best from beloved Nantucket: "The airport is closed, the
ferry terminals are closed. Exactly how are we to evacuate the island?"
Our dear friends on Martha’s Vineyard have already lost power.
Our thoughts are with you all, and we hope Sandy passes as quickly and
safely as possible, so life on the beautiful Eastern seaboard can resume
