December Travels

December brings {adventure}, snow days (ones with snow, not the ones where you get the day off), holidays, family time, and reflection.  It also brings lots of food and {sweet treats}.  One of my favorite things about December (for the last 3 years anyway) is that it begins with a {mother-daughter} shopping trip to Chicago.  We go for the shopping, of course, but for us it is more about the experience and time we get to spend together gallivanting down the {Magnificent Mile}.  Here is a photo tour of my day in the Windy City:

What’s your favorite place to visit along the Magnificent Mile?  Mom & I need ideas for next year!
