The move & life after...

Upon moving into my new house, I immediately started work on my closet. My closet, by the way, is ginormous! It's like an additional bedroom. Oh, did I mention I have the attic room? It's a good size compared to my last bedroom, so the extra space is much appreciated! The closet work, pictured below, shows the transformation from blue to antique white. It is much more comfortable and homey! That handsome helper is my boyfriend Derek. He was eager to help out and it's always more fun to tackle a project like this with someone!

Anywho, it has been a few weeks now and the three of us are almost completely moved in! Last night, Erin, Courtney, and I had our first roommate dinner. Courtney fired up the grill and we drank wine and had a fantastic little meal on the back deck! I'm excited to finally be in-town this weekend to really break in the new house!

My family reunion: LA edition

This year, my family reunion was in Los Angeles, California. Lots of sun, lots of smiles, & a ton of fun! One of the first days, we broke up into teams and did a scavenger hunt similar to the amazing race. My team, unfortunately, came in 3rd (out of three teams), but we did have a lot of fun seeing some cool Hollywood sights along the way. Saturday night, when we roasted my uncle as SNL characters was by far my favorite evening! He was a good sport and laughed the entire time! Yeah... my family is pretty cool :) I love them all & miss 'em already!

The losing time, but definitely the bestttt team!

Life lately...

It's been quite sometime since my last post! Life has been very busy as of late... Let me tell you a little bit about it! If you remember I was headed to Spain mid-may; The trip was amazing and I have many stories and pictures to share (if only I could find my camera cord amidst the boxes!) Just before Spain, Erin and I moved our stuff into a storage unit to be saved for our new place. We went to Spain and then couch surfed for a few days before finally getting into our new little home on the first of June. I am just barely moved in and now I am headed to Los Angeles for a family reunion! So pardon me for the lack of attention here... Never fear: All of these activities and projects and photos will be blogged at some point!

On another note, I wanted to share and article a good friend of mine sent me today. It will certainly make you think. I'll leave you with that. Please share your thoughts and feelings about it!
