New Homes


 Some more of our furniture and things were delivered this week, and the feel of our apartment has been coming along nicely. I'm so happy that Andrew and I both get to have our respective creative spaces - though tonight we just colored in my sketchbook on the living room floor with a 24 pack of Crayola's. Andrew's sister, Laurie (who is actually one of the few people who I know reads this - hi Laurie!) said that my space is so much more soothing than Andrew's, which is funny, and also true. My "office" doesn't really have a theme, I just hung up a bunch of stuff that I liked (my Lemuria set list needed to be displayed) that also inspires me and makes me feel good. I think all we really need is a couch and some curtains and we can start feeling really at home here.
Every day I wake up and head out, I'm so thrilled to be somewhere fresh and new. I felt a little bit homesick when I started listening to a friends band while driving the other day, but it went away pretty quickly. I'm excited to make more friends and further explore our new city. A cashier the other day gave me back my ID and said "This is a long way from home!" to which I replied "Yeah, but this is home now.", and it felt good.
Home is where the heart is :)

  1. Glad to see that you are getting all settled in :) I recently moved to a new state to be closer to my boyfriend, so I know exactly how you feel. I definitely get homesick sometimes, but when it comes down to it, I just want to be wherever he is. Can't wait to see more pictures of your new apartment and city!


You're probably about to make me smile.
