C*E*L*E*B*R*A*T*E -- Capricorn

It's true.  I think birthdays should be celebrated for an entire month ~ most especially if they fall in the deep winter of the midwest!!

This doesn't mean each day needs to be filled with cake and presents.  It just needs to be celebrated.

Yesterday was celebrated in downtown Chicago.

It was an easy drive in.
Parking, as always, was a bit of a head scratcher!

Reflection of Illinois Avenue.

An idle crane today.  A high rise condo tomorrow.

South on Wabash.  The Trump Tower.

Ah, brunch at Bistronomic on Wabash!
A wild mushroom omelet for me.
Across the table, eggs benedict for
the Baker.

Let the celebration continue!!


  1. Aquarius day is enough for me:)

    Enjoy..the header is so cute!

  2. i love that shot of Trump Tower, my first View of it. header shot is really cool too.

  3. Bonnie,
    I take at least a month....There are little presents to be sure but mostly fun projects and places to visit.

    Happy Birthday!


  4. That is what we do in our family; we celebrate our birthdays for one month; makes it possible for the kids to get together. I am Sagittarius and December is a happy month. Great looking omelet; my guy would have gone for the Benedict too.

  5. Ahhh, enjoy! I too celebrate all month, by going to lunch with as many friends as will invite me. Sometimes it stretches into two!!! Lovely!!

  6. What a bright and cheery header photo on such a dreary Monday here!

    Enjoy all the celebrating with special moments! Happy Birthday!

  7. I would love to visit Chicago, my husband has been a few times and really like it! Not sure what diagonal parking is though :-)


  8. YEP, that would help the winter pass quicker to party down all month.

    Love the dishes they serve the food in and looks so yummy.

    Have a wonderful birthday month.

    Super photography!!

  9. This Scorpio loves the fun candles in your header! Happy B-Day Month-enjoy:@)

  10. Whose birthday, yours? HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I just back and trying to catching up. I love the reflection in the window pictures best, but am salivating at your omelet!!

  11. Have a wonderful birthday celebration!


  12. Happy Birthday!!! I will have to tell my dad and step mom about that restaurant, it looks very yummy!

  13. Hi Bonnie, I am definitely a believer in a celebratory month rather than day when it comes to birthdays! Happy Birthday by the way! I'm sure your omelette was was great but I would have gone for the benedict. I love your header.

    xo, Bonnie

  14. YEAH----when it's birthday time, we definitely need to do alot of celebrating... I know that I do that ---and love every minute of it...

    What a wonderful brunch... How can you top that on Thursday???


  15. definitely for a month- one day is not enough! Happy Birthday!

  17. Love , is absolutely nice, love the pics Bonnie!
    My mom is capricorn:)

  18. oh yum, i think i'll order both meals! happy birthday :)

  19. the coffee cups are between 3 sidewalk cafes and they all serve coffee, one is directly accross the street the others are on either side of the office. they had to put it where there was room for it.

  20. It sounds like a wonderful day and your photos of the outing are terrific. How can you not have a wonderful birthday when you are surrounded by such loving and caring people. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  21. I'm getting so old, I try to ignore that day entirely....let alone celebrate an entire month! :)
    Really love your header, Bonnie.

  22. Happy Birthday from another Capricorn. I agree....celebrate all month. It looks like a wonderful day. Hugs! Bonnie

  23. Happy birthday Bonnie! I hope that you do make a point to do something special each day of this month.


I always enjoy hearing from you, my blogging friends.
