The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
WHAT IS THIS I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS
The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
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!
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
This is Salvation Army's "officer training" campus. It's a freakin' awesome old house that sprawls out over at least an acre.
Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
So pretty. I miss this.
Mom and I take the obligatory "hey, it's us in the Bean!" photo.
