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!
So pretty. I miss this.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
WHAT IS THIS I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS
My first major snowfall (and the only one I really faced this year). I sure wouldn't want to drive in this! But I did learn that it takes a hell of a lot to shut this city down.
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.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
Mom and I take the obligatory "hey, it's us in the Bean!" photo.
The Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
Snow on a fence along Lake Shore Drive.
The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
My street, snowed over.
And here we are with the Bean as a backdrop. It's seriously awesome, which you really can't tell from these pictures.
Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
Mom and I ready to go out for New Year's partying!
Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
