January is a time for reflection and appreciating the memories of the past while anticipating those of the future. This year has included so many highlights that I hardly know where to begin. The city teemed with worthy charity events and over-the-top parties. Celebrities came to town in droves discovering for themselves that Illinois is no longer a fly-over state.
I've been very privileged to have had the opportunity to cover many of these happenings, not only for ChicagoNow, but also for my website, Candid Candace, my internet show on Watch312.com "Candid Candace Chicago" and for my social page in the Chicago Tribune every Sunday. So take a walk with me down memory lane and see some of my favorite photos of 2012 and the people, places and events that inspired me.
