Chicago on My Mind

Reality hit me with a thud today, as I sat (squirmed) through a long, long day of meetings. It's the second day of a three day workshop and it's going slowly. My mind kept drifting back to Chicago and some of the sights I most enjoyed.

Autumn on Michigan Avenue



The wonderful Art Institute of Chicago

 Robert Indiana's sculpture of "Hope."

Though technically it's Wednesday, this is my "Tuesday" post. I will be announcing the three winners of the Shutterfly giveaway later today. And speaking of giveaways...the mail brought a terrific surprise for a giveaway, thanks to some terrific folks I met at BlogHer. Stay tuned! It's yummy.

It's tough to get back into the swing of things after a vacation. But duty calls and answer we must. Like you, the PHOTOS make me nostalgic. Logged many hours there. Speaking of giveaways. I just ordered my Paper Culture cards. So hard to choose. Many Thanks to you again. Take care.

Some day I want to go to Chicago, and I want to go to NYC too! A gal can dream!
