It Has Been A While, Hasnt It?

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!




  1. hi hi. good to hear a post from you. changes can be good - I wish you all the best in the new place. A fun fresh start. And as for the camera, I have heard good things about the Canon G11. The best PandS ever, I think.

  2. Thanks for the comment Elise, and for the camera recommendation! I'm definitely looking forward to my new place and all the fun stuff that goes along with it. (hopefully with photo updates, haha)
