Dear 1bdrm Apartment

Early this morning, I turned in our gate openers and keys, and said goodbye to you.  I walked through one last time, remembering all of times we shared, good and bad. I’m sure you don’t care.  After all, with just a few coats of paint, you’ll be ready for your next tenant.  For me though,…

Shade-y

Today marks day 10 of owning a house.  And I feel SO at home! I love it!  But you wanna know something I was not loving? This: Our temporary, hasty window covering, made of shop towels and painters tape.  This was thrown up the first night at the house, when we realized how creepy the…

Amatuer Artist, Impatient Sewer

Or is there a word that’s lower than amateur on the spectrum? If so, I need that one!  In my ongoing attempt to make Izzy’s room rival her in cuteness, I did some artwork for her room.  Realistically, it looks like it was done by a child, but that’s not so bad, I guess.  I…

Pom Poms Project

(FYI, I tried my best to give this post a cutesy title, like “Pom-Padour” or “Pom-Pom it Up!” but they all sounded so corny that I got embarrassed, so you get a boring, literal post title) I can’t remember where I first saw the idea of doing the pom poms in the nursery or babies…

Gravity

I feel very stressed. Excited, and anxious. I’ve always been excited about the prospect of buying the house, but now, the weight of cleaning, painting, moving, and most of all, writing a very large check, is really starting to hit me. I know that it’s a blessing, and I’m grateful. The chaos is temporary, and…
