While I’m in Chicago I’m staying with my wonderful friend, Alex. We met a few years ago when I finally managed to shop at a great boutique here called Florodora. Fast-forward to me working with her at the boutique then spending many a night snuggled up in my apartment with a bottle of red wine and a good movie. She’s such a fabulous friend and I feel so blessed to be spending my time in Chicago at her humble abode.
Over the weekend she hosted a small housewarming party to celebrate her new space. We grilled, we drank, we laughed. I had a great time enjoying the cool end-of-summer air with old and new friends. It also made me really excited to move into my own space and host parties that are as well-done as hers. I mean really, how perfect are the little details!? They make such a big difference.
