Lovin' Lakeview

Greg & I recently relocated to a new neighborhood a few miles south of our original residence here in Chicago. You probably know that my best friend moved to Chicago last spring and stayed with us for a few months, but when she moved, she relocated to a neighborhood that we both fell completely in love with upon visiting her new digs. We'd been talking about moving for a few months and we both agreed we'd like to live in the same neighborhood as Meghan. So when she called me a few weeks ago to let us know there was an apartment for rent in her neighborhood, we jumped at the chance to visit. After a great deal of conversation and even a little extra apartment hunting, we settled on that very apartment.

It's a 1 bedroom garden unit in a 3 unit building in the heart of Lakeview. We couldn't be happier! We sacrificed a few amenities, but we gained a private front & back entrance as well as a fenced backyard, a beautiful neighborhood, and some very kind neighbors with 3 very cute dogs. We're still moving in so we'll post photos later, but we're super excited about making a life (and starting our married life) here. Miss Lilah is thrilled about her fenced back yard, although she's comparatively less excited about the occasional dusting of late Winter/ early Spring snow we've been getting. The cherry on top is that Meghan is just 2 short blocks away, and another one of our very best friends is just a few blocks from us too. Per usual, life is way better than either one of us could dream of. Stay tuned for photos!
