Chicago Reflection



Chicago Reflection

Welcome to Chicago's Millennium Park. No, I'm not reporting from Chi-Town, where everything seems to go wrong for yours truly. This here's Ella Numera Una, The Roomie & The BF at The Bean during a summer sojourn.

I've been in the best mood all day, because we've had an unlikely visitor~the Sun. Went to bed Wednesday nite, with Old Man Winter still in the forecast. Woke up Thursday a.m. to birds tweeting & that big, golden orb hanging out in a quasi-blue sky. Talk about pleasantly surprised. I whistled a happy tune all dern day.

Stay tuned, Scribe Fans, for blogoversary janx to come! You Humble Scribe will be commemorating 2 years in the blogosphere on Monday. Thought we'd get this party started on Saturday with a giveaway, then continue on to an extended Silly Sunday Sweepstakes, culminating in the pièce de résistance on the actual blogoversary date.

No pre-gaming allowed. As my journalistas might say, "This throwdown's gonna be some kinda whack!"

Yay for the sun! Hope it's there to stay for a while, or at least until those gnarly mountains of dirty snow melt away.

The Bean was a must see when I visited C-town last summer. It's hard to describe how cool it really is. You have to see it in person.

Congrats on your blogoversary! Two years is awesome!
