honey, we’re home.

here are a few shots from my home/ building/ CITY! It is so weird guys! … I step out my door and there it is, a great big city with cars whizzing by. The other day i waited downstairs to let the cable man in while in my pajamas in the middle of a city street. I felt silly, but this is my home now! It is taking a little bit of getting used to, but I really love urban life. I get to walk so much more, I can’t even imagine how much I will love it during the winter-y months. Do any of you live in a city?

The birch tree wall decorations were sent over from the lovely Paul and Danielle of Urban Walls. Honestly, it was one of my favorite gifts because it benefitted Matt! he is such a huge participant in this blog, but doesn’t get much from it in return, so he picked out his favorite wall decor and we spent an afternoon putting them up πŸ™‚ there are cute birdies, and they look so professionally done! even my dad was impressed! okay, off to finish up my finals and work work work!

shorts: for sale in my store
