Home Tour

Today I’m SUPER excited to share a peek inside our home tour compliments of the lovely Lauren Painter from Neighborhood-Ing. Lauren does great features each month of apartments / condos in Chicago’s amazing neighborhoods. I’m a proud resident of the West Loop neighborhood and I wouldn’t change it for the world! I remember when I was looking for a place to buy, the realtor kept telling me I needed to consider the West Loop – that it was upcoming. This was back in 2008 and BOY am I glad that I listened to her – that takes a lot from me 🙂 I love the location and will never grow tired of its perfect combination of city / suburb . I have a super eclectic taste and loving combining high and low pieces in my home – my favorite way to find incredible things is antiquing! So many good finds!

Love Letters

Valentine’s Day isn’t one of those days to rub your relationship in all the single lovers faces. No. Thats not nice – rather, it’s a day to share with anyone (friend, family, lover) that you love them because Hallmark says so. To be honest, Brian and I don’t really use Valentine’s Day to say I love you or to buy gifts, but we use it as a day to reflect and stare at all of those on their first date 🙂  We like going back to eat dinner at this hole in the wall Italian place in Chicago where we spent out first Valentine’s Day. We then cap the night off with some Pabst in a can from Richard’s Bar (one of THE best dive bars there is). This day is more about my girlfriends – I love sending them all little gifts as a reminder that I value them and our friendship. Each year I try to think of something fun and gimmicky – something they would appreciate and make them smile 🙂 Today I’m sharing some easy DIY Valentines Gifts that will make your friends feel extra special!
