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.
My street, snowed over.
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!
Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
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!
The Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
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!
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
Icicles on a church in my neighborhood.
The Hancock Building on a sunny (FRIGID) day.
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
Mom and I take the obligatory "hey, it's us in the Bean!" photo.
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.
