Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
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!
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
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!
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
Where did the cars go?!
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
So pretty. I miss this.
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!
Mom and I take the obligatory "hey, it's us in the Bean!" photo.
Mom and I ready to go out for New Year's partying!
The Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
