A Day in Chicago

Although Chicago doesn’t generally top anyone’s list for travel destinations in February, I nevertheless found my spirit rejuvenated by this little trip to the (bitterly cold) Windy City. The mercury didn’t top twenty degrees Fahrenheit today, but I was too excited to care. Following are a few of my favorite shots from Day 1 of my travels.

  1. Great pics, very Chicago

  2. I’m soo jealous – I can’t believe what fab timing you have chosen to leave Philly. It was -16 F in parts of the far suburbs here last night!! Love all your travel pics, Gina; keep them coming!

    1. No need to be jealous, Patricia . . . the weather in Chicago was similar. A warm-weather vacation this was *not,* but fun nevertheless! Thanks for your comments, as always. 😉 I hope to post the rest of my Chicago pictures soon. In the mean time, I hope you’re staying nice and warm and out of the snow tonight. Spring is right around the corner . . . I can feel it!

      1. I know to a Midwest person, complaining about tonight’s snowfall may sound crazy – but we have been struggling w/ a frozen-over kitchen faucet from time-to-time and other issues! But at least this weekend we all will be rising above freezing temps and it’s the little things that help! I hope you, BG and your lovely kitty are staying warm in this snowfall tonight. Let’s really hope for a decent warmup soon. Looking forward to more “Windy City” pics – so we Philly folks can feel warmer!!

    1. You’re sweet, Miss Rose. Muah!
