Sometimes you rush up the stairs, sometimes you stop and look. I recommend the latter. #chicagoart #chicago #streetart #publicart #art #transit #publictransit #cta

Spent the better part of my day playing secret service for a man in a bear costume. Teamwork makes the Cubs-mascot-reunion dream work. #cubsconvention #cubs #chicago #chicagocubs #gocubsgo #bleedblue #cubscon #cubscon2018

Happy #givingtuesday: the perfect time to celebrate how three years ago I decided that for the cost of my cable bill, I could help feed and clothe and educate and send this adorable little Salvadorian to the doctor and the dentist and to an after school program that makes sure he does his math homework and helps his mom feed the chickens. @compassion is an endeavor I will praise endlessly for bringing Osmar into my life and making El Salvador my home away from home. πŸ’™

The exterior lights on the @rockfordregisterstar building are lit blue on Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017, in honor of Rockford police officer Jaimie Cox who died in the line of duty Sunday. Hardware stores around the Rockford area are running out of blue light bulbs almost as quickly as they stock them, as people turn their porches blue in honor of Cox.
