Trip of a Lifetime

After months of waiting, it's finally time to hit the road and get married! I just wanted to drop a line before leaving, and let you know that I didn't plan any blog posts in advance, and I will be doing my best to cherish every moment we're in California. "I do" plan to post photos of our wedding and honeymoon adventures on Instagram, and I would love for you to follow along with us! When I return, the big milestone of 1 year of blogging is right around the corner, and I have an important announcement.

Craving Change

Occasionally, I get this urge to sell everything I own and start fresh. New home, new furniture, new city even. I'm sure many people out there can understand this urge from time to time. But there are very few times in our lives when we actually get to make a fresh start, and those times typically come around when we're in our early-mid twenties. I might never find myself standing in front of a completely blank canvas again, and that's okay. I'm so in love with my life as it is. But that doesn't mean I will ever stop dreaming about building a home from scratch all over again. It's fun to imagine. In a few years, we will buy a new home together, but I doubt we'll get rid of too many of our current possessions and buy new ones. Still, there are small changes to be made throughout life that give a room a brand new feeling: artwork, paint colors, decor accessories, sheets, etc.

Luckily, I will have a new last name soon, and maybe that will take care of some of the urge for new beginnings.
