A Chicago Family Christmas

It's become a tradition that we get together with some of our Chicago friends to celebrate Christmas together. Instead of our typical potluck sit-down dinner, this year we opted for a potluck tapas style. Everyone brought smaller tasting portions allowing us to graze and socialize around the house while still filling our bellies. 

Our friends Eric & Beth kindly hosted this year's affair, and welcomed us into their newly renovated home. Some of their renovations include the exposed brick wall and the fireplace with built-in shelving unit (pictured below). They exposed that brick themselves, and scrubbed in between each and every brick! And that fireplace/built-in unit, Eric built that himself. Let me tell ya, their hard work is paying off. Their home is not only gorgeous, but oh so cozy feeling too. 

Happy Holidays from Chicago!
