The week has been a long one, but we’re excited about the weekend! The weather is forecasted to be beautiful.
We’re switching things up a bit today to share a few updates happening in our lives at the moment. Nothing overly exciting, but there are a few things we have in the works that should make the next few months fairly thrilling and busy!
1. We’re Renovating!
This has been a long time in the making and I could not be more excited! Our plans are to redo just about every room in the house. Our house has a very open floor plan so I am most excited about the thoughts we have for the living room, dining room and kitchen.
He and I plan to scrap most of our current furniture and decor so be on the look out for a TON of posts on home decor and inspiration! Not to mention, the plans should be completed just before our holiday entertaining! I’ve been shopping lots of bar carts, y’all, and think I’ve landed on a few I really love.
Feel free to share your thoughts on design and decor! I’d love all of the tips I can get! 🙂
2. We’re Headed on a Road Trip!
Most of our vacations involve a lot of sun, cocktails and a beach. Shawn has always wanted to take a trip to a cabin – something a bit cooler than I like – so this Fall we’re planning to switch things up a bit by planning a week long road trip.
I’ve gone through about 20 different plans from Chicago. Some that head directly west – Chicago to Montana to Denver and back. Another from Chicago, through Michicgan, through Canada and back.
Because I can’t decide, I’d love your thoughts! Does anyone have any great plans for road trips? Any places in the Midwest we should definitely visit? More rustic resorts we should stay at? Please share!
Once planned, I can’t wait to share the adventures with you all!
3. We’re Starting a Nonprofit
Some of you may already be aware, but Shawn and I are really passionate about helping out in our community. We spend a lot of time identifying ways to assist the homeless in Chicago particularly. After a year or two or donating and volunteering, we’ve given a lot of thought to stepping up our game and are researching and considering starting our own nonprofit.
We’re in the beginning stages of developing our vision and mission statement, our goals and long term plan. There is so much for learn and consider, but it’s a journey we feel very passionately about.
Again, if you have any experience in starting a nonprofit – or have any tips you think would be helpful – please share! We need as much help as we can get! 🙂
I hope you all have a great weekend! See you back Monday, hopefully! XO
