This season has been a wild ride and one for the record books. Our family has followed every step of the way and today we are celebrating the first championship in 108 years with millions of others! A day we'll undoubtedly always remember.
Our family bleeds Cubbie blue. I have cheered for the Cubs as long as I can remember and have ensured my kiddos will pass the love of the Cubs on for generations to come. It is so much more than a game: it's tradition, passion, and family togetherness all rolled into one.
All of our kiddos cheer on our beloved Cubs. They pride themselves on knowing the names of the players and follow along almost as carefully as their older brother at times. A trip to Wrigley Field is a celebrated occasion and they've all taken to saving up money for a Cubs ticket there next season.
It is so much more than a game: it's creating memories. It binds us together.
This year has been magical from start to finish. It all began with a trip to spring training where dreams really do come true. A young boy, who idolizes so many players on the team, had the opportunity to get up close and personal with his heroes. Photos, autographs, and simply soaking it all in was a dream come true.
The whole family got into the spirit and cheered on the Cubbies in Wrigleyville West. We could sense that something was brewing then and all of the kids wanted in on the action. They all had the privilege to meet some of the Cubs young stars up close and snag some autographs. They have become prized possessions in this house.
Our Cubs enthusiasm has stretched from the mountains, to the prairie, and to the ocean white with foam. Everywhere we went we took our Cubs gear and took a picture. Deep down we just knew this year was going to be special.
Our boys saved money to take a trip to a game at Wrigley Field in July. We saw the Cubs beat the Mets in a spectacular game and topped it off with a trip to Portillo's. A new tradition has begun.
Late this summer we vacationed in Colorado while the Cubs were in town and took in a wild game at Coors Field. They didn't win, but it was a crazy night and one we'll always remember. My whole family was there and we cheered our hearts out despite the cold weather and rain.
Our love of the Cubs is much, much more than a game. It's a common interest that takes us all over the country and brings us together right here at home. We cheer, we hug, we high five, we strategize and reminisce at the dinner table.
Our love of the Cubs has been passed down from generation to generation. Through the good, bad, and the ugly we stick by our boys of summer.
The family that cheers together, stays together.
Go Cubs Go! This was the year!
