Hi, everyone. Remember that time I disappeared for a good three and a half months with no warning, and no out-of-office letting you know when I'd be back (gasp!)?
Yeah, I'm sorry about that. The summer filled up fast, and sadly blogging fell by the wayside.
- The exciting news is I've spent lots of time thinking about how to make Thirty Somewhere bigger and better, and I have new tricks up my sleeve for the coming months.
- The bad news is I missed spending the past few months with you, hearing what you've been up to and sharing stories of my own. Let's try to make up for that, right now. What's new? Here's my rundown:
We celebrated America, in one of America's greatest cities, with cocktails, one of America's greatest pastimes.
We wet our German whistles celebrating Oktoberfest... with lots and lots of Chicago-brewed beer.
And now that we look back, if it seems like we've been nesting here in Chicago, you're on the right track...
We're nesting in the NEW HOME we finally locked down last August!
Honestly, for those of you who were part of our condo purchase roller coaster, you probably understand why we didn't have much time to travel, or to blog -- or to do anything really, beyond pushing to seal that deal.
We're so glad we're finally settled in our very first home, picking out paint colors, scoping out new furniture and hosting our best friends for any excuse to throw a party. While we've been checking out West Elm more than the West Indies lately, we're finally ready to scratch that insatiable travel itch again.
And that means you can expect a lot more fun and exciting updates on Thirty Somewhere! Plus, I'll be pulling in travel tips from fellow wanderlusters who've logged a lot more miles than me. Get ready for lots of fun ahead. Buckle up for the ride!
