I’m on a roll with these Life Lately posts, and writing one every month or so is much, much easier (than trying to write them weekly. If I get 2 blog posts up a week I feel like I’m killing it, so there’s that. It’s so so hard to find …

Now that we’ve been in our new home for 3 months, we’re starting to see some more progress and are slowly making design and decor decisions. The living room, dining room, kitchen, and Margot’s room are looking pretty good, but everything else still needs some work. Our office is sort …

We recently went from a small 1 bedroom condo to a 3 bedroom, 2 story house. It was a huge change for us. This is my seventh home in almost eight years so I’m no stranger to moving and getting settled. But this time around, I went into the move …

I’m so excited to give you a tour of our first house. As someone who never thought about leaving downtown Chicago, I am happy to say that I love having a house and that I really enjoy the quiet and slower pace out here. It’s been so nice spending mornings …
