Cruising Back from California | Photo Journal

Chinatown Gate

Okay, yes, I have been away. I think I forgot to tell you that before I left. I’m back, yes back to snow, snow and more snow. It’s good to be home in Chicago. While I loved seeing Santa and the palm trees on Union Square, it’s State Street I long for now. But, I have to wait until Phoebe comes home from college. Then, we’ll reunite and rerun our traditional trip downtown to visit what once was Marshall Field’s to pick out ornaments and indulge in chocolate. Hope you enjoy this photo journal . . .
