My husband and I moved from the city to the suburbs right before we were married just 2 years ago. Ever since we became homeowners, I feel like we are playing house. I do work full time, but my work is 10 minutes from my home so I am able to accomplish both being a housewife and having a career. I am also a proud mother of two adorable dogs who I treat as if they are my children. I work in the fashion industry and my husband has one of those big fancy downtown Chicago careers.
If you would have told me 5 years ago that I would be buying a lawnmower and the fancy edger too – I would have laughed. Well the time has come and I actually enjoy going to Home Depot… What happened?!
I love the city, but I’ve fallen in love with the ‘burbs too.
