Our New City!


Dono & I are so excited to be living in Chicago! We enjoyed a weekend exploring the city & unpacking. 


Our apartment building was built in 1888! 


I absolutely love so many things about our new place! The ceilings are extremely high, the light fixtures are beautiful (I actually can't stop admiring them), the fireplace is original & the stained glass windows let the prettiest light in! 

I can't wait for all of our furniture to arrive & make this beauty feel like home! It will be very challenging considering we only have 750 sq. feet to work with, but I'm trying to come up with clever storage ideas (any suggestions would be greatly appreciated). I'll make sure to share more photos once we have furniture! :)
