Tulips at Old Orchard

On my recent trip to Chicago, my sister and I were on a mission. A shopping mission. So where did we decide to go? The mall!!!

My mother tells me that Old Orchard in Skokie, IL was the first mall in the country. It's a gorgeous, open-air mall. This is where you can tell that it was one of the first malls: Who in their right mind would plan an open-air mall in Chicago? Lovely in the spring, as you can see here, but the winter...?

I've been lucky lately. I love traveling to the U.S. I don't usually get to travel very often.
