I've been pondering - How is it that I became old enough for my baby to turn 14 years old? The time truly does fly...

As luck would have it, we were in Chicago last weekend. It was a much needed break and the weather cooperated wonderfully. We did the art, we went to the ice rink, shopped, but mostly ate. I love the anonymity that the city brings and always feel right at home.

Yes, I found a yarn store...or two. Strangely enough, I didn't really want any yarn. All of the handpainted was measured against Chris' Briar Rose and just didn't cut it for me. I did find those buttons for the Making Tracks Cardigan and will post a photo soon. They are sewn on, but I am protesting my camera. Bugg was gifted with a new camera for Christmas and it has spoiled me. There is definitely a trip to Circuit City coming up in my near future!

It was sad to have to come home, and reluctantly, we schlepped back into the small town groove.

My other baby is having a birthday in a few weeks. Bugg will be 17! My goodness, I have been blessed!

What a wonderful trip! You really are blessed. And what a photogenic pair they are! :)

I love Chicago. One of these days, I am going to make a trip back. One of the highlights of my educational years was a field trip to the Field Museum in Chicago.
