We bought a Two Flat!
We’ve been bursting to share this news with you for weeks, but let’s be real, we’ve been spoiling the surprise on Instagram since the day we closed. As an investment in our future selves, it’s been a dream of ours to own another small slice of Chicago real estate, and in the last year, we realized that we could, might, possibly have a shot at making it a reality. We’ll be sharing more about the how and why very soon, but first, we wanted to officially introduce you to our newest adventure: The Two Flat.
Tip: We’re sharing the definition of a Chicago two flat in the video!

We’re walking you through every room in the house, and we think you’ll fall madly in love with her, too. She’d been in the same family for three generations prior to us, but the house has sat vacant for the last 15 years! The house was part of a multiple bid scenario, and we poured our hearts into a letter for the realtor, who is also the grandson that once lived in this home. We crossed our fingers and held our breath, and we learned that it was our letter that sealed the deal for them. While I was editing the footage, I couldn’t stop laughing at my comment, ‘it’s cute!’ at 4:51. Juxtaposed against a crumbling brown wall with soiled carpet and a discarded cereal box taped to the wall – well, I was wearing my rose colored glasses that day. (Still am.) Sigh.
We’ve also added The Two Flat to the list of house tours and room makeovers, and they’ll always be there for you through the menu bar or blog footer. There’s so much more to come, and we hope you enjoy a look behind the front door. We think this is going to be a fun ride, friends!

I bought this respirator when I was pregnant with Lucy, and now I reach for it every time.
These have quickly become my go-to black jeans.
My safety boots (not to be confused with my party boots!) are a champion on the job site.
My striped shirt has made it through countless closet purges. It’s no longer sold, but this one is spot on!
