and so Christmas day 2017 ends

Goodbye Christmas Day 2017. It was wonderful to be with family and be reminded of how precious it is to care and support each other. It brought joy to my heart to think about friends near and far and be reminded of how my life has been surrounded with so much love and encouragement.  God bless you. Thanks, Christmas Day 2017, for a wonderful day.

as seen in Chicago

I spent some time in Chicago with some of my colleagues today. Here is a bit of what I saw. First, falling presents at Macy’s.

 

Everyone knows that if you find yourself at Macy’s in Chicago during the Christmas season that a visit to The Walnut Room is not to be missed.

 

The Bean (Cloud Gate) is like a magnet for photographers. I was unable to resist.

 

I saw two stars and a bean.

 

It was a beautiful day with unusually warm weather for December.

 

The London House (center) and… well…you know.

 

The Chicago River looking particularly grand today.

Thanks for stopping buy!
