Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
Mom and I take the obligatory "hey, it's us in the Bean!" photo.
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
This is Salvation Army's "officer training" campus. It's a freakin' awesome old house that sprawls out over at least an acre.
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.
Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
Mom and I ready to go out for New Year's partying!
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
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!
My street, snowed over.
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!
Trib Tower, look particularly Gotham-esque.
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
So pretty. I miss this.
Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
