Kicking off the New Year with a wonderful sunrise bike ride. A little on the cloudy side, but still the best way to start the day. The sun finally found a way to break through for a beautiful, albeit brief, sunrise over Lake Michigan.

And then just one last treat I picked up at the end of my ride to celebrate the New Year! As for tomorrow reality sets in… and I get back to the normal routine of things. Back to work. Back to the studio. Back to eating better. Back to working out. You know the drill… Welcome to 2017.

So nice to have the holidays over. All the planning, shopping, decorating.
Done. Done. And DONE.

Now for the “chore” of getting everything back to normal.
And this morning was one sunrise in the right direction!!!

Sure, maybe I should have been Christmas shopping? Or wrapping presents? Or one of a million other things on my to-do list?! But it was surprisingly warm (comparatively) this afternoon so I just had to head out on my bike! Christmas stuff can wait till tomorrow, right? Why rush.

And while the sunset was brightening the western sky, it was fun to see the festive Christmas colors on top of the John Hancock Building downtown!

A tough ride into the wind this morning.
Worth it for a beautiful sunrise over Navy Pier.
Filled with cool silhouettes and groovy reflections on the Pier.  #navypierchicago

Beautiful clouds sweeping through Chicago this morning…
framing the skyline with wispy colored streaks.
