The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
Marilyn looks cold.
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!
My neighborhood under snow.
Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
My street, snowed over.
WHAT IS THIS I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS
So pretty. I miss this.
The Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
Mom and I ready to go out for New Year's partying!
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
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!
