Self Portrait Tuesday - Introduce Yourself

Recently we went back to the neighborhood in Chicago where I grew up. It was quite a trip down memory lane to visit all my old haunts, my elementary and high schools, my friends houses, places we shopped, etc. This is the apartment building I lived in from age 6 until I was 22. The apartments have now been converted into condos. The current owner happened to be coming home while we were walking around outside and he was nice enough to invite us inside to see what the place looks like now. Surprisely, not much had changed. I was happy to see that the beautiful hardwood floors and crown molding were still intact as well as some of the other grand features of the building. I know that they say that "you can never go home again"...but in this case, I did.

Love the way you illustrated going back home for a peek. I would like to do this; but I think the thing that I would like to see is a glimpse of me
