My Fairytale Cottage
Hi Everyone! I am so excited to get back to blogging! Last semester my school workload killed me and over the past couple of months I have been through a whirlwind of life events, changes, and transitions. In fact, this past week has been the first time in several months that I feel content, settled, and happy. I am very affected by my surroundings, and don't do well with change and being in flux.
This past Sunday, I moved into my new studio apartment. It was such an incredible find, in the neighborhood of Bay Ho, with a large yard, space to garden, and facing a canyon with incredible views! It is so quiet here and its the perfect amount of space for me. I was so worried about being able to fit everything, and now that I have unpacked, I actually have unused cabinets and shelves! To me this home is a metaphor for my life right now... I am making space for the things that matter, bring me joy, and add value to my life... There is no room for anything else. I have always craved a tiny cottage in the woods like Snow White, and this is what my new place feels like! I wake up to sunshine and birds chirping (and yes the kitties are loving all the birds). I have space to cook, knit, garden, and do DIY projects and crafts. All of my favorite things!
Alright, enough gushing. I am looking forward to doing lots of future posts about gardening, cooking, design, and small space living, but without further ado... Here are some pictures of my new home!
