The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
And here we are with the Bean as a backdrop. It's seriously awesome, which you really can't tell from these pictures.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
Icicles on a church in my neighborhood.
Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
Marilyn looks cold.
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.
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.
This is Salvation Army's "officer training" campus. It's a freakin' awesome old house that sprawls out over at least an acre.
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
Where did the cars go?!
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!
WHAT IS THIS I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS
My neighborhood under snow.
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
