I remember reading this post three months before my move to Chicago and hoping that somehow I'd meet Alaina and we'd become friends. She seemed fun, I loved her style, and I didn't know anyone in Chicago. She's a girl that anyone would be lucky to call a friend–as sweet as you'd imagine her to be. I never would have imagined that someday our homes and website would be featured side-by-side in a magazine
A few things:
The photos of my home are a mix of photography by yours truly and John + Maura Stoffer (who happen to be shooting something for TEG today). It's really exciting to see my photography and home in CH&G.
I received a few comments about my DIY painting after my home was featured in Rue Magazine. I ended up giving my painting to a friend and Stephanie Jean of Lulu and Drew (who inspired my DIY) is painting something for my new place this weekend!
I've been posting sneak peeks of my place on my instagram and The Everygirl's instagram, too.
Thank you to everyone who linked up yesterday! Hope you found some new friends / people to stalk.
I'm off to a photo shoot for The Everygirl and couldn't be happier that it's finally Friday. On the agenda for this weekend: An event tonight, CrossFit, going out with friends, and finally, to the ballet with Gina. In desperate need of a little down time and a very large iced americano. Because I drink coffee now.
Have a lovely weekend.
