I made the absolutely
terrible wonderful decision to wander Michigan Avenue during holiday shopping time and 8 degree weather to get glimpse of holiday lights and sparkling window displays. I spent the whole time listening to Sinatra sing about this beautiful city and was reminded of what a gorgeous town it really can be.
The lakefront park is a mere five minute walk from my apartment, but I rarely see it in the winter -- except from a cozy perch in a warm bus on Lakeshore Drive. I made an in-person visit this week to give the lake my regards, but the reception was awfully chilly.
Come along on my walk? Wear layers!
