I’ve been living alone for the first time in my life since January. I realize every day how much I love it and how fortunate I am to be living on my own at 25. Sometimes I stop and look around in disbelief.
I have final say on everything.
I pay my rent. I pay my bills. I plant my garden. I pick my food. I buy that super-sweet-smelling candle in pink and paint my bedroom bright yellow. I don’t care what anyone else has to say about it.
I am completely self-sustained for the first time in my life, and it feels wonderful.
I have great friends, new-found hobbies that keep me moving, a man that makes me very happy, and this super special guy to always welcome me home:
More on my house soon! As you may have imagined, I moved everything around again. I’m planning on taking some pictures of the home including the garden and a semi-final shot of the closet renovation I posted earlier. Take care, and be happy!

Sharon Montrose was featured on The Every Girl this week! If you’re an animal lover like me, you definitely have to check out her work. Can you imagine taking photos of cute animals like this baby kangaroo for a living?
I’m sure most Rifle Paper Co. fans have heard, but this week they debuted a line of iPhone cases. Now you can dress up your phone in the same dainty, beautiful artwork Rifle Paper Co. is known for. Loving it! Unfortunately, my favorite designs aren’t available for my iPhone 4. However, iPhone 5 users won’t have a problem.
I’m a huge Kate Spade admirer, but I only own a bag and a wallet. (Hoping to increase my collection!) I spotted the Kate Spade NY Waverly Street Drew and immediately fell in love. These are getting harder to find because they’re going on sale, unfortunately. I’ve spotted a mint color but this pale pink Waverly Street Drew is gorgeous too!
I’m filling up my wishlist with dresses for the warmer weather, which I can’t wait to knock off the list one-by-one. This Well-to-Dew Dress by Modcloth looks dressy yet comfortable, just what I’m looking for.
Anthropologie always has the cutest things for both the home and your wardrobe. Check this out — they have gold-dipped flatware. Does anything scream ‘I’m Super Fancy’ more than this set? I wish I had an excuse to purchase. These would be great for special dinner parties.
I have a soft spot for bumblebees, so this Tiny Bee Crest by LushPrints on Etsy stole my heart. I don’t like to own too many craft items like tape, stickers, or stamps. But every item in a collection should mean something special.
Glasses like these Winston Lunar Fade Glasses from Warby Parker make me wish I still had a valid reason for wearing specs. I found out a year or so ago that my prescription was incorrect, and I technically only need to wear glasses for 20/20 while reading. That’s a good enough excuse to buy these, right? I wish.
With the weather really warming up here in California, my beach bum self is tempted to head out to the beach already. I’m thinking a one-piece bathing suit over a bikini this year. (Work your illusionist magic, baby.)
