I'm Shannon, a Chicagoan for the past 13 years and native Michigander. I live in a loft in Bucktown with my fiance, Amer and our French bulldog, Hugo. We live to eat. I'm a sucker for interior design, and my home will never, ever be "done".


In 2018, I made the best career transition I could've hoped for: I became a real estate broker with Baird & Warner after ten years in the advertising industry. 

My goal in creating this blog was to fuse my career in real estate with my passions for lifestyle curation and design. Finding the perfect home is the first step, but that home will go on to play a starring role in the meals you prepare, the friends you entertain, and the cherished moments you spend with your family and your pets for years to come.


To me, an "abode" is a foxhole filled with everything and everyone you love, reflecting who you are and functioning in perfect harmony with your lifestyle.


I hope the ideas I share here will be informative and inspiring, and thank you for reading!
