I’m sure you didn’t notice, but I was absent from my post at The Spencer Magnet at the end of the week last week. My husband and I took a much needed trip to Chicago.
I won’t linger on that, except to mention my bravery in stepping out onto the Skydeck at the Willis Tower. It makes one a wee bit woozy to step out onto glass, see-through flooring 103 floors up in the air. But I did it and have pictures to prove it.
