Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
Where did the cars go?!
Marilyn looks cold.
Mom and I take the obligatory "hey, it's us in the Bean!" photo.
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
My street, snowed over.
Trib Tower, look particularly Gotham-esque.
So pretty. I miss this.
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!
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!
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!
And here we are with the Bean as a backdrop. It's seriously awesome, which you really can't tell from these pictures.
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
This is Salvation Army's "officer training" campus. It's a freakin' awesome old house that sprawls out over at least an acre.
