Christmas in the City

Posted on by Angela Kauffman

A few days ago, I popped up to downtown Chicago to see it in all its holiday glory.  I had a great time catching up with friends, checking out the famous Macy's window displays, celebrating my heritage at the German Christkindlmarket, and basking in the many glowing Christmas lights throughout the city (oh and shopping, plenty of shopping)!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a big "Happy New Year" to you all!

Here are just a few pics (all shot on iPhone) from my quick jolt through downtown...
