Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
The Hancock Building on a sunny (FRIGID) day.
This is Salvation Army's "officer training" campus. It's a freakin' awesome old house that sprawls out over at least an acre.
Trib Tower, look particularly Gotham-esque.
My neighborhood under snow.
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
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!
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
Marilyn looks cold.
Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
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!
