Home Sweet Home

Aaaahhh.  That was an exhale.  Over the weekend, I finally completed my move.  Everything is unpacked.  Everything has a place and everything is where it belongs!  This is how I like life to be.  All perfect and in its place.  Oh, how I wish it could all stay like that!

I feel like, in so many ways, I'm in this "preparation" stage.  One of the things I'm going to have to get a grip of is that not everything is perfectly placed all the time.  Sometimes the unexpected happens.  Sometimes there's just a lot going on and you have to know where to draw the line - that it's okay if there are clothes in the hamper or trash in the trash can because you have to sleep or put something else before having this perfect perfection.

I realize more and more every day that I am my mother's daughter.  I remember as a kid not understanding why my mom worried ALL THE TIME, telling her to CHILL, RELAX "we'll figure it out,"  etc...  Wow, staring 30 in the face, now I get it.

So, yeah... I'm working on that.  Like I need another project, RIGHT?

Meanwhile... have a look at my 800 square feet of perfection (for now):

I really like this apartment :)

I think everything looks fabulous! I am so proud of you! I also love the new bedspread! Keep in mind that it doesn't stay like that! It's just nice to get it that way. It is fun for me to fix it after it gets messed up. Sometimes it's fun messing it up! HA!!

Dana, I love it!!! It's super cute. I'll have to come visit again now so I can see it in person:) Also, I have to say I'm a little disappointed that you didn't photograph your color coded closet. LoL:) Glad you got all settled! Talk to you later!
