These past two weeks of being a newlywed mainly consist of us relaxing at home after all the chaos of the wedding and many family members in town. We've spent some days relaxing, some days running errands, and some days getting back into the swing of work and home life.
We have some home improvement goals on the horizon but I wanted to share a little piece of love that arrived in the mail on our wedding day from a favorite blogger of mine. Christine of The Plumed Nest wrote a guest post for me while I was off entertaining family the week before the wedding. I mentioned her needlecraft and handcrafted pillows on her Etsy shop Plumed on the guest post, but now you get to see her work for yourself!
Christine gifted us a pillow that she made for our wedding day and it appropriately arrived on May 4th, the day of our wedding. Christine makes many different designs, and this one was so perfect for our start of married life in our home.
The story behind the heart trail is that we are currently living in Orlando and we have dreams of moving to Chicago. We've always wanted to live in a big city at some point in our young lives before really settling down in suburbs. Chicago is on our sights even though we've never been before. Not sure if you can tell yet but we really love food. We love eating out at unique restaurants just as much as we love eating in, cooking a new meal. Chicago is a city with the most 4 star restaurants in the nation. Chicago is home to the video game company S currently works for and is also home to a plethora of museums that one day I hope to have to honor of working events in.
Some upgrades we have been planning to do in our home are a new bed frame and a new mattress set. We have a brand new set of sheets and duvets from our wedding, so it's only appropriate that we start them off right with a brand new bed! We have been looking at options from Ikea since they are both affordable and contemporary and we've found the perfect match. I will update again on what we found and how it all came together!
