I’m moving. Now what?

I hate moving less than most people.

Other than the expense, and other than eventually getting tired of packing, I don’t really hate moving at all. Instead, I see it as a chance for a fresh start.

In the past, I have been slow to decorate and tentative about it too. One thing I have learned from my roommate and friend, Katie, is to dive in.

These are a few of my favorite things (right now anyway)

I don’t know about you, but Spring is making me Spend. Here is where my money is going right now.

Just to be clear, I’m not moving to Los Angeles. It’s true that LA is one of my favorite places and I look forward to my trips there. Every time I’m there, I wonder what it would be like to live in LA.

New pink stuff

My new coat and dress arrived. Thank you post-Christmas sales!
