Well, first off, I’m sorry I’ve been MIA! But, second, I just finished editing pics from my girls weekend getaway in Galena, Illinois and so excited to share it (in 2 parts)! Being in Madison, Wisconsin (only a couple hours from Galena) I’ve heard various friends and family talk about this cute little town of Galena and how it’s full of historic homes, cobblestone roads, adorable small boutiques, and plenty of wineries. But I’ve never been…until now. And here’s the thing, we stayed in the CUTEST, most stylish and comfortable little Airbnb called The Owl House and it’s the best thing you could ever ask for. Not only that, but it’s literally a block or two from the main street (seriously, the best location if visiting Galena).

Okay, so now you can see how freaking adorable this place was! And for those who can appreciate good design and products, you can expect a couple Magnolia magazines, west elm decor, Crate & Barrel glassware, Jonathon Adler shampoo/conditioner, etc. It’s seriously what my home dreams are made of. And for added enjoyment, they had the cutest bar cart, an adorable patio, 2 bathrooms (with great show pressure) and an insanely comfortable king size bed.  – So, Well done The Owl House, well done!

Feel free to take a peek at it below on Airbnb AND if I believe you can even get $40 off your first stay using Airbnb if you sign up HERE first! – P.S. we also did hang out at the house more than expected (sitting outside sipping a cocktail), so this place was well worth it ;)
