Photo Story

So Steph was tagged and I tagged myself. =P

* Open first photo folder

* Post that photo and story on blog
* Tag five {or more} friends to do the same

Taken on a weekend getaway to Chicago where the bf and I went to the Signature Room for cocktails and a 360 view of Chicago at night. The Signature Room is on top of the John Hancock building right on the Magnificent Mile. We didn't plan on it, just walked around on a Sat night, saw it, and went for it. It's a scene where the elevator ride itself had to have its own "bouncer," only letting in the right number of people at a time, creating a line just for the elevators. Upon getting out the elevator was yet another line. It was so dark and exactly what you would imagine a cigar-smoking, cognac drinking kind of place to be (of course, no one smoked there now). We did a run-through and picked one of several rooms to visit. That wait was longer than the wait to get there. At last, it was our turn and luck has it that we were offered a spot for two right by the ceiling to floor windows. You can't see much in that photo but it's a photo we waited much too long to take! Oh yeah, as we sat gazing out the windows, we overheard a guy proposed to his gf. Yes, overheard because we were so close. Kinda awkward spot to propose but I guess she said yes!

Thank you Vyv! You’re great! Ha ha, oh yah, coffee is great. Especially cappuccinos. They’re my favorites. Unless we start talking about Persian coffee, that dark roasted, ever permeating gold.
