It’s been a good long while since I posted an old school straight-up mommy blogger style post. And I’m sorry for that!
I’m still trying to find the right balance to keep you, my faithful old friends, satisfied and entertained without traumatizing my new audience at CNA. Because let’s be honest, I’m not going to radically alter my voice or content, but some trauma you have to ease into.
The new blog is almost up and running, the design is going to be beautiful, and I can’t wait to show it to you. In the meantime, I’m still “here,” and so I figured why not post a little fluff to pass the time?
Oh, also, I finally embraced the modern world and joined Instagram yesterday. Welcome to the 90’s, Mr. Banks. (And you all were right: it’s the most fun of all social media.)
So something that I really, really love (because I’m a creeper?) is seeing other people’s homes. I’m a would be decorating junkie and an HGTV addict, so there’s nothing more fun to me than seeing somebody else’s style/space and being able to envision them more accurately in their natural habitat when I’m reading their words. (If you’re trying to decide if you’re disturbed or flattered, go with flattered: I want to see your living room.)
Anyway, do you want to see my house? It’s been enjoying a little TLC while I KonMari’d the crap out of my wardrobe/kitchen/bookshelves/decor, and I’m much happier with the way it looks now as opposed to 2 weeks ago. Much.
It’s still not perfect, you know, because it’s a work in progress. But it makes me happy to coax it along; I get a rush of satisfaction from finding a new spot for a tired piece of furniture or a neglected vase. Cheapest of thrills.
So, here you go, a virtual tour of casa del coffee:
First up, the living room/front entry way.
(How do I get such amazing shots? I’m telling you, it’s the 2 year old camera phone and the steady caffeinated hand. #gifted #blessed)
