Life is really starting to fall into place (knock on wood) and I am so grateful! I have found a new apartment, registered for classes and am pursuing a newness in my job! Everything is still a little up in the air, but I have an overall good feeling about it all! I used to fear change in my younger days, but as the days, months and years have marched on, I have too. Embracing change I feel has been one of my greatest 1/4 life achievements!
  One of the most exciting things coming up is the apartment! It is really beautiful and I can't wait to decorate and DIY it to death! I have so many ideas and my Pinterest overfloweth with tutorial after tutorial on lamps, wall inspirations and color palettes. Most addicting site, ever.  If you have one click here to add me. I'd love to see what inspires all of you! I am really pretty new to all of this decorating stuff. Living in San Francisco home wasn't really a "home" it was a place I slept. The city itself was my "home" and I spent most of my energies exploring and enjoying it. Santa Barbara was a whole different story. I decorated my personal space, but I trusted NO ONE with any of my home purchases..slobs. Now in Austin I have the chance to really get into it and I couldn't be more confused and excited.
  With that said, if any of my readers have any inspirational sites or ideas leave me a link or email me your best ideas! Can't wait to hear from all of you!


  1. Ahhh.... you are so right about Pinterest (following you, btw!) it really is amazing and very addicting. There are so many great decorating ideas on there! I just moved about a month ago and am slowly using what I have found to make my new place "home". Can't wait to see updates! Sea Marie

  2. Hi! Well I just found your blog from a guest post on Sometimes Sweet! I was very happy when I saw you're from Austin, TX! My husband and I are planning on moving to Austin at the end of the year from California. I would love any advice on great places to live or even how to handle the heat!! We visited last November on our Honeymoon and fell in love with the city! Thanks for any advice!
