Another perfect end of summer night at Langdon Beach (Lake Michigan). Blessed.

Amazing night sky from the beach at Gillson Park, just before a crazy thunderstorm.

Chicago Architecture Tour. Building modeled after a French church in ‘neo-gothic’ style.

Chicago Architecture Tour. The ‘brutalism’ style – exposed concrete. Often used for federal buildings.

A view from our offices – great view for our UX meetings today. The picture doesn’t begin to do it justice.

Chicago Architecture Tour. A new mural with a map of the city, and a red light to show ‘you are here’.

Chicago Architecture Tour. This building was occupied by Boeing, but originally built for Mortin Salt. The top has circular cut-outs to look like a salt shaker.

Chicago Architecture Tour. Starting with the Wrigley Tower, in the Beaux-Arts style. The tick marks on the clock are Ws. 🙂

Peonies … one of my very favorite flowers! It’s finally Spring in Chicagoland (barely … it was 47 today).

I had a client meeting at Independence Grove in Libertyville IL today. Doesn’t this look like a watercolor? It was a beautiful venue and a productive meeting – it doesn’t get better than that!

I love this time of year!  Though, these pictures remind me just how fleeting it is – these have faded away since I took this a week or two ago …

Came into a different terminal at O’Hare last night. Beautiful! In spite of all the people grounded due to tornados … 

Dinner venue with clients last night. Loved the warm evening air in SoCal!

A picture from our vacation .. flying into O’Hare International (and having a little fun with some new Hipstamatic paks!). July 2014

Saying goodbye to Chester CT today, after a lovely week of vacation with our families. July 2014.

The Bahai Temple (Wilmette IL) shrouded in fog during my morning walk today. June 2014.

Seen on my morning walk yesterday. They are ready to explode!
