new home

i started looking for a new apartment in january, but quickly realized how expensive living on your own is... i felt discouraged for a couple months, and my search started to get spotty as i gave up for a little bit. but when crunch time came along of seriously having to move from my old place, the perfect new spot popped up! the amount of room for the money was a crazy deal, and it still has the vintage charm i crave.

now i call this sweet 800 square foot corner apartment with SEVEN windows and dark stained floors my home. sure the outside of the building has "extra character"...and may even look a little scary to the everyday dog walker... but it's in a safe neighborhood and this little gem inside speaks for itself.

here is and month and a half worth of decorating (my favorite thing!) with primarily estate sale finds...

Almost Like We Live on San Juan Island

last month we payed another spontaneous visit to san juan island, this time with my family. we were hosted in the sweetest cottage house in roche harbor's village with my mother's connections. the six of us ate well for every meal, my sisters boyfriend went to culinary school as it turns out, we put him to work! we went on countless walks, found tons of bones (even a raccoon skull!), and returned "home" every night to a fire pit. it was hard leaving after spending four days on the island being spoiled by nature...

end of winter film

These are from a roll I've had around since this past November... I love seeing "lost" photos.

On a side note, I've had this blog for four years this month! I started it when I was in school to document my misadventures... While my posts tend to have larger gaps of time in-between these days, I still like the occasional "photo-dump" so that I can look back on where I've been. This is my very public diary i suppose...
