My View

It has been a gorgeous week (and weekend) and I've been especially enjoying my view from my office so I thought I'd share what I am privileged to look at every day! The pictures don't do it justice but here they are regardless!!

Just to the east of us is the fabulous Wrigley Building...there is a little sliver of Lake Michigan that is visible (really hard to see in this picture).

This is the view to the south-east.

The view straight south...the Trump building is on the right.

We have a nice view of the Chicago River and get to watch the tour boats and sailboats (on nice days!).
There is a beautiful little plaza where we can eat lunch along the river and there will be an even nicer park there once Trump Tower is finished (as you can see, right now it's a staging area for construction equipment).

And speaking of Trump Tower...it took away our view to the South West (including the Sears Tower) but I think it's a beautiful building and am liking it more every day! I was nervous there for a while but it's really taking shape (and getting super tall!).
You can see the front of the building and the parking garage entrance at the bottom.
We are a few stories above the restaurant and can peer in on people at night...there are huge swarovski chandeliers which are about three stories tall!!

We can hardly even see the top of the building anymore!

So that's my view...what's yours?

OH MY - what a view - I'm so jealous! I don't even have windows in my office/really a cubicle.

Wow! You are so high in the sky! I love this :) Chicago, ah, Chicago! What a marvelous city!

My view right now is rather dull, though I have Papaya cards all over my grey cubby cubicle :)

I used to work in the Empire State building. It's glorious to see the city(s) from yon high! Very inspiring and makes you feel proud.

My view is just about the opposite of yours: a cornfield (this year). It is very pretty in its own way. It is much prettier in the spring, summer and fall than in the winter.

I am jealous of that view. Memphis doesn't have a view near as pretty.

Just getting back into the swing of things after being gone for two weeks. Great being back! Missed my blogging friends;)
