We are headed to dinner and Chris jumped in the middle of traffic to to catch a shot of the very surreal sunset.

When I first moved to Chicago I was taken by the architecture and history (as I was in Detroit). Daniel Burnham celebrates 100 years of the Plan of Chicago and down State Street there’s a bunch of really cool looking, silver-backed posters in the flower beds. Check them out if you’re down there.

I don’t think I’ve had the same seat all season with a long-standing conflict on Thursday night. But tonight I am excited. I’ve always wanted to hear Beethoven’s Eroica. We’ll see about this one.

Good sunset

What a view! The city is about to go to sleep soon.

I gotta say that working on brand standards really appeals to the more anal side of my personality. Here I am looking at more than 350 pages of standards that I helped write and organize. And we’re almost done. I am a little sad… A little…

Good morning city!

I love being downtown so early. The sun’s not up yet and I am headed into work to get started for the day. The city is mine!

Congrats, Peter!

It’s good to celebrate the victories in life over delicious deserts. We headed to Hot Chocolate in Wicker Park for some late-night indulgences.

One of the minor victories in my job recently was the completion of the National Demolition Association’s website. Though I hadn’t been directly involved for a little bit, it was started by a strong group effort and finished by Josh. Eventually, it got loaded. Yay Josh and the whole team.

So I wonder why all these tatt parlors are popping up all over the place…
