oh hi... remember me..??

I've had a few people in the last month ask me if I was every going to blog again and I wasn't really sure. I guess I could say I've been busy... but really I just haven't been that interested in blogging. I hadn't actually looked at my blog in months but then spent the better part of an evening this weekend looking back over old posts and found myself wanting to give another go at it.  

 I think blogging is good for me... helps me to slow down a bit and document little moments in my life. And it's easier to blog when I'm blogging frequently. So starting up again feels a bit difficult because "...so much has happened..where do I start..."
So I guess I'll just start with today.
I organized the shelves by the back door! :) Our house doesn't really have a pantry and so when we moved into this house earlier this year I found some great  'California Closets' shelves on craigslist for cheap and installed them by our back door.
However, they were great shelves but full of a bunch of junk.... so I bought some new bins and spent an hour this weekend making them look presentable. They're even labeled!
Other new developments around the house... I finally found a couch! I spent the better part of 6 months trying to find a vintage crushed velvet sectional that I loved and finally found one. It's in MINT condition. Seriously.. not a tear, stain, or speck of dirt. It did however smell like an old lady for a good 2 weeks.  
 I also managed to finally spray paint a vintage lamp I brought back from Idaho back in July. This lamp was a lovely gold/brass color for a good 3 months and sat without a shade on the table forever. I found a decent shade and ta-da! Finally.. the corner is complete. It only took 10 months.
 We're having Thanksgiving at our house this year and I'm looking forward to spending time with V's family. It's also good motivation to finally clean some things that need a good scrub...
I think Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love the cool Fall weather and colors. I love not having to worry about all the gift giving. It's also really great that Vito does all the cooking so it's really the easiest holiday ever...
Eat good food, enjoy time with family
...be thankful.
Thanks for reading. Hopefully I'll be back soon. xo
