I'm not going to lie. I've been avoiding my blog. Mostly because I don't know how to write about what's going on in my life right now.
I guess the most important thing that's happening is that I'm moving next week! :) That's number 25 on my 25 List, but I'm taking care of it first. Ran into a great opportunity, and starting next Saturday I will be living in a condo 3 blocks from the fabulous and adorable down town Pleasanton. I'm very very excited to make this change in my life and to live in a place I can be proud of and really LIVE in.
This rather large life-changing event brings my to my next important change in my life. I will be, unfortunately, making this move alone. Sans KN, sans Kitten Kat. I shouldn't use this place to share the how and the why, but just know that this is the right decision for me, and while I am sad, I'm also really excited to start living this new stage in my life.
Currently my lonely apartment is sort of a mid-moving mess. Boxes galore, clothes in bags, cleaning supplies out in the open, empty rooms and no couch. But it gives me a chance to really think about my new place and what sort of personality I will bring the space.
Like this really rad, retro sofa, for instance. Complete with espresso brown matching chair? Would be nice :)
Of course, being on my own in my apartment for the first time in 2 years has really given me the chance to sit down and do what I used to to all the time; be creative. Not that living with someone took that away, I guess I just didn't sit and force myself to do it. Lately I've been listening to a lot of really great music and trying to create as much as I can. (Great music being Florence + The Machine, Bon Iver, St. Vincent, The Sundays, Keane, Iron and Wine, and Beach House). Right now my desk smells of colored pencil wax, and I love it :)
Next weekend marks the big move, and I'll be sure to show as much as I can. My digital camera status is still in limbo, but right now I'm leaning towards this guy. Anyone have any point and shoot digital camera recommendations?
And speaking of cameras, I have my contest-winning photoshoot with the fabulous and talented Jesse Holland on Monday. I'm VERY excited, and I may or may not have had a mini fashion show in my bedroom today. I've settled on my outfits, so I think we're good to go.
Thank you so much for your understanding in my absence. I look forward to showing my moving progress on my blog. Can't wait for everyone to see! Have a fantastic weekend!
