Our Christmas Home Tour 2018

I have thoroughly enjoyed adding new little items to our home decor that will fit into Rooney’s room as she grows. We switched things up a bit from last year.

We’ve planned a few must-sees like the Art Institute of Chicago and the Shedd Aquarium but we’re going to play things by ear and open to suggestions for the best pizza, hot dogs, tacos, and coffee downtown.
