Feet on the Ground, Head in the Clouds

My goodness! It’s been a while. Since I last saw you a lot has happened.

I hosted a movie night for my girlfriends and, while I was a bit apprehensive about the lack of space and seating, it was a success. Tip: Floor pillows are a lot more comfortable than one might think. Stay tuned for more excellent small-space movie night tips.

I turned 29. I feel seven in spite of myself. In fact, I threw a tantrum and cried like a little girl when I realized my 20s are slipping away. I can’t even pretend to be a child anymore and it’s not fair and I need my mom.

Dave and I went to Santa Barbara and Los Angeles, where we gathered lots of inspiration for how we want our space to look and feel. I love that beach-y, bohemian vibe that seems to come naturally to Californians.

And with all of the weekend getaways, working hard at our day jobs, and finding time to hit the gym, I’ve realized how important it is that our home be a comfortable sanctuary. Hopefully, this blog will help me get it there.
