Ok, it’s been FOREVER since I’ve blogged, and I think it’s about time to pick back up again! So much has happened in our lives. We moved into a new construction home at the end of May in the far west Chicago suburbs and have been non-stop since then trying to get settled. I decided that a great little entry back into blogging can be a mini-tour of my new house.

The projects will be never-ending! We have already painted the family room and kitchen and put up a back splash. We have replaced most of the downstairs lighting as well with new fixtures that more fit my style. Next up is adding board and batten wainscoting to the dining room and installing hardwood floors. Then we’ll paint and add some wall decor.

I can’t wait to keep painting and adding window treatments to make it feel more like “us.”

Here’s some snapshots I had handy 🙂
