From the city to the suburbs, that's the spanse of my life here in Chicago. When I'm not at my house in the burbs, I'm at my sister's house in the city. I have to say, I am definitely a city girl- that's where I prefer to spend my time, but then sometimes, "there's no place like home". Sometimes....
My bedroom at home is a wonderful east facing room, with a row of three large windows. Each morning, through my pink and purple sheers, I get the beautiful, blinding sun, shining in my face. Despite the sometimes annoying 4:30am "peek-a-boo" over the horizon, I love my view and often take pictures of it.
In a few months, I may have the opportunity to have more space in the room across the hall (which would be nice, considering it's many functions; bedroom, classroom, chat room, office)but I won't likely take it. I have become too attached. There are so many memories here.
My sister's condo in the South Loop looks out over the entire south side, including US Cellular Field (formerly known as Comiskey Park) and parts of Indiana(on clear days). Talk about a view! I love to walk out on the balcony, and just take it all in.
Anyway, here are some shots I took this weekend-
First, sunset in the city on a cloudy Saturday night.
Then a snowy Sunday morning shot, out my window.
There are more pictures in this set here at my now unlimited, again (thanks, dad!), Fotki account.
Ps. I probably will not be posting too frequently in the coming weeks. My birthday is coming up and soon after (hopefully, Inshallah) a Morocco trip, so I am working furiously to get as much work possible done before the big 18 and the end of the month.
