this little side-effect that came with it, we thought we would revisit our trip from last year:
Talking to any Chicagoan, one nostalgic holiday tradition everyone remembers is going to see the Marshall Fields's holiday windows.
Marshall Fields was a local department store pioneer who created the holiday window displays that began in Chicago over a century ago. He created theatre sets within each of the seven large windows spanning State Street. Each window tells part of a story. In the past they have had themes including Pinocchio and Harry Potter. This year was 'The Magic of Christmas'. Though a lot of people have been disappointed when Macy's bought out independent Marshall Fields they have not done the windows justice.
Despite the local controversy, with the dreary, cold weather, it's fun to have an outdoor, dog-accessible activity we can all enjoy (despite Miss M's face):
And Miss M....was Miss M.
We also loved this and this in the winter.
Taking your pup on an art walk!
The warm activity that gives Miss M 'Crazy Eyes'
