I'm @mollypg and I'm #TakingOverChooseChicago. Just when you think this city can’t get any more beautiful, the holiday decorations go up and it’s even more breathtaking. #mychicagopix

I'm @mollypg and I'm #TakingOverChooseChicago. Have you heard the saying, "There's no bad weather, only bad gear?" That’s certainly true here in Chicago. Bundling up and exploring the city after a snowfall is one of many treats winter brings. #mychicagopix
@choosechicago
Good morning! I'm @mollypg and I'm #TakingOverChooseChicago. Since 1927, Buckingham Fountain has served as the centerpiece of Grant Park. The memorial to businessman and former director of @artinstitutechi Clarence F. Buckingham was a gift to the city from his sister Kate Buckingham. #mychicagopix
@choosechicago
I'm @mollypg a self-proclaimed #architecturegeek and I'm #TakingOverChooseChicago. Architects at @skidmoreowingsmerrill designed the John Hancock Center in 1969. Structural Engineer Fazlur Khan wrapped a giant steel tube in a series of structural cross-bracing X’s that give the building its signature aesthetic. #mychicagopix

I'm @mollypg and I'm #TakingOverChooseChicago. This is a shot of one of Chicago’s newest parks @the606chicago. On December 11th they’ll be hosting their 2nd annual Walk with Light. Grab a cup of hot chocolate, bring along some winter clothing to donate, and be a part of this new Chicago tradition! #mychicagopix
@choosechicago
I'm @mollypg and I'm #TakingOverChooseChicago. It’s tough to avoid being an #architecturegeek in Chicago. We’re so fortunate to be surrounded by some first class specimens of several different styles of architecture. Our city is a veritable architecture museum. #mychicagopix
@choosechicago
I'm @mollypg and I'm #TakingOverChooseChicago. Have you met Ceres? She’s a 31-foot (9.5 m) aluminum sculpture by John Storrs that is perched at the top of the @cbotbuilding. Ceres is the Roman Goddess of Agriculture and the perfect ornamentation for the home of the world’s oldest futures and options exchange. #mychicagopix
@choosechicago
Hi! I'm @mollypg and I'm #TakingOverChooseChicago. The @gpconservatory is the perfect Chicago attraction to enjoy when temperatures start to drop. Its fern room is always beautiful (and warm), plus you can wander through their annual Holiday Flower Show, open now and running until January 8th – this year’s theme is Sky Forest. #mychicagopix
