What do you love about Chicago?
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
Marrying the love of my life in the city I hold in the same regard.
If you're from Chicago, you know what it feels like just to say the city's name. You can instantly conjur up the images of a drive on Lake Shore on a warm summer evening. You vehemently defend and support our teams, our restaurants, our neighborhoods, our people. The view of the skyline, from any direction, at any time of day, during any season, takes your breath away. When you say "I'm from Chicago" to an outsider, you don't care what that means to them, it's about what that means to YOU. That's pride. That's Chicago.
