Good Friday morning, all, and…is it really October already? Phew. I half expect sweaters, boots, and steamy spiced drinks to fall into my lap. Especially this weekend when we’ll be rolling up those sleeves and attending the Design Harvest, Chicago’s first annual local furniture, home accessory, and vintage-lovers street fest. You read right. My brain hasn’t even had a chance to process how potentially amazing this could be. And of course we’ll share the details next week.
Until then, we thought we’d share a few fun moving-and-prep day memories. At this same time three years ago, we found ourselves more-than-knee-deep in cardboard boxes, searching for our lost cats (I know I saw Libby in here somewhere… 2 hours ago), and loading up our then-Jeep with loose dishes and clothes still on the hangers. Yup. Three years ago, we moved into this yellow brick home. And made quite a mess.
Of course we spent most of September painting the majority of our walls Behr’s Chlorophyll and Pumpkin Patch, even going so far as installing curtains (and you know we love a good curtain) all before move-in day. We spent the last handful of years arranging, rearranging, and arranging again. And picking up a new kid along the way – surely just to lose him in our future cardboard jungle. (One day).
Anyone else in this Windy City planning on attending the Harvest? What else do you have in store for our first October (yay!) weekend?
