Sneak Peak

I believe that a few weeks ago I made a little promise, a promise to give a video "grand" tour of my apartment. Many of you (familiars) have seen photographs of the place in various stages of incompletion. I wanted to wait for the icing on the cake before giving it its grand reveal: the paint. Due to some recent splurges and setbacks, as well as the consistent heat and humidity, the painting will have to wait. Though I do not have that tour today, what I can offer you is a sneak peak.

It seems every day things shift around a little. As if echoing David and I, our belongings search for that sense of "home."

As I mentioned before, we couldn't help but give into a few impulse buys that make our home feel a bit... cozier.

And like many people when first starting out, we have that "extra room" which we're almost entirely neglecting until we get the important parts of the new place up to par. It's a bit of a dumping zone until we have the necessary money and organization to convert it into our ideal office/guest room/closet.

I have to say, the place has felt like home right from the start. A lot of that probably has to do with the fact that where ever David is feels like home to me, but it's nice to notice that feeling grow. Every day I'm more comfortable, not only in the apartment, but in this neighborhood, in this city. I've got this whacky notion that one of these days, I'll blend in here just fine.

If you like what you see so far, just wait until our vision is truly realised!


  1. So beautiful!!! It definitely looks like a home and I can easily picture you two there, and so happy. Isn't it nice to live with David who is so meticulous about being tidy, as opposed to Ev and I who have never had that "empty extra room" problem before? What is this "extra room" you speak of? I no understand. HAHAHAH. We need you guys to stop over here real quick and clean for us. Could you? Oh and I really really want to visit you guys so badly!!! Wahhhhhh!!! Maybe I'll go apply for a job at the A&F Home Office, so that I'll be able to afford to do so? There's an idea.

  2. Well Megan- I don't know if you've heard, but we're hiring over at Dudes :-)

  3. I love it! I have only seen the sofa so far when we Skype. I really can't wait to see it in person, but I'm with Megan on the whole being able to afford it issue, and I don't have A&F to fall back on (plus I have this thing against working for Satan). I also have never had a spare empty room problem, but I'm glad you do! I'm sure it will become an interesting space. You know what would look good on that TV? I bet you can guess...
