The Christmas tree inside the mall at 900 North Michigan is an impressive thing. More
I’m finally back from my niece’s wedding, a foretaste of what this summer will be. We’re slated to attend three more weddings before October, and in between I’ll be helping with my parents’ move. In short, it’s a summer of beginnings, a prospect that thrills!
I like the appearance of this house, because it achieves a “Christmasy” look so effortlessly. Most of the effect comes from illuminating the natural beauty of the formal evergreens, to which have been added a few strings of seasonal lights. The windows and doors of the first floor are decorated with traditional evergreen swags, though at night they’re difficult to see. This house is beautiful and impressive in all seasons.
An old vintage apartment exudes peace and stability on a quiet side street. A simple garland of lights adorns its elaborate entry and heavy doors.
A storage facility makes its pitch as we whiz by on the Dan Ryan. There is always something inconclusive about these encounters.
