Chicago, Chicago, That toddlin town!
Chicago, Chicago, I'll show you around. I love it.
Bet your bottom dollar you'll loose the blues, in Chicago!
Frank Sinatra got it right. I had that song stuck in my head the whole weekend. The first little Chicago tid bit I'll share is from the Sears Tower. They had an awesome exhibit you walk through before you get to the sky deck. The graphic design was fantastic and the crazy lighting was fun to photograph. On the hundredth-something floor there are clear boxes that jut out from the side of the building. I'm embarrassed to say that I took one step out on the ledge almost lost my breath. I've never been one to be scared of heights, but I got all dizzy and my hands were clammy...I couldn't do it. I had visions of taking one step and the whole box crashing to the ground. I realize this is ridiculous, but it seemed like a legitimate concern at the time. As you can see, Cree was much braver than I. You can also see that we both need to shine our shoes. I'm waiting until the snow is gone.
PS...I've gone and lost my phone again. I'm embarrassed how many times this happens to me. Blarg.
PPS. Isn't this the cutest website you ever did see?
