When a house becomes a HOME
Well it's official: We can finally say our Chicago house is now our home. 💙 How does that exactly happen? I'll tell you: friends+family+laughs+wine (LOTS of wine)
Here are some pictures of when we first moved in. Even though we had everything hung up and all the boxes were unpacked, something was missing. It wasn't filled with any memories...yet.
Fortunately for us, we moved to an area where we know people...and we like having them around!
We had Kyle's sister, Maggie, and her boyfriend, Joe, out for the weekend for Maggie's 24th birthday. So.much.fun!
Next, we had the entire Sycamoron crew over for taco night. (*Sycamorons is a term of endearment for our family that lives in Sycamore, IL😃) Kyle's parents, aunt, uncle and grandparents all piled into one car and made their way to the big city to visit us and see our new home. After countless family dinners in their homes, it was nice to host them in ours.
While living in Austin, we were fortunate enough to make some really special friends. These friends brought a lot of good things into our lives. One of them being the tradition of Friendsgiving. Of course we had to keep the tradition alive. We had friends from Indiana, cousin from Wisconsin, sister from Colorado and more all gather for some delicious turkey, fun games, excellent company and good times.
Thank you to everyone who came, ate, drank and laughed with us. If you haven't yet, please come visit soon - We would love to have you!
Next visitor is going to be the best: my sweet niece, Jo! Can't wait!
