Returning to normal
Today is a day that I never thought would get here. No more moving, no more packing, no more travel... just life as normal. I am excited to nest in my own home, decorate, and just have life get back to normal.
Perhaps most of you are dying to know about my trip to New York. Well, I do have some bad news. I barely took any pictures. What is odd is these days, I never take a lot of pictures on trips anymore. The best way to explain it is that I love to just soak things, places, events in. I did get some cool shots of the Brooklyn Bridge on my iPhone.
My highlights of the trip were: driving through Manhattan in a U-Haul with two dogs, hanging with my sweet friend Tori, walking over the Brooklyn Bridge at night time, an oatmeal raisin cookie from BabyCakes, the trim stores in the Garment District, Beacon's Closet Park Slope, and getting to visit with dear Mel and Nickie. I had such a blast getting to hang out with them! This may sound silly, but I think the best part was seeing how animated they both are!
These are the first outfit photos at my new house (which by the way, I have a mini tour set up of an unofficial before pictures). I am just pleased as punch as the way these turned out this morning! I am really trying to be more wary of washing my hair everyday, and have finally found the mixture of product and process that works well. Tonight, Sam is coming over so we can cook together. I missed him a lot last week and I am so excited to get to spend some quality time with him this evening.
