I saw this cheap trunk at Home Goods and wanted it for a coffee table, but couldn't transport it home. The next day, after work, I went back to measure it and see about shipping. And I decided just to strongarm it back on the bus. When Mom called to ask if I'd found out about the cost, I said, "Oh, yeah, shipping is free." Just a little sweat!
I took this picture for Mom. This bar isn't far from my apartment, and we ate several dinners there in September when I moved out. It sure looked different five months later!
Icicles on a church in my neighborhood.
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
Trib Tower, look particularly Gotham-esque.
Mom and I take the obligatory "hey, it's us in the Bean!" photo.
I was pretty impressed with this snowfall until the one that hit later in January. The second one shut a bunch of busses down. But the first one sure was pretty!
The Hancock Building on a sunny (FRIGID) day.
So pretty. I miss this.
Where did the cars go?!
WHAT IS THIS I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS
The Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
And here we are with the Bean as a backdrop. It's seriously awesome, which you really can't tell from these pictures.
