I was driving yesterday and took a wrong turn. Here's where it took me. I have no idea whose house this is, but houses with character make me so happy. As a student living abroad, I've moved a lot over the years, and even though I've wanted to invest effort into my living spaces, the thought of packing everything up again always dissuaded me. So the most I've done in the decorating department is stick photos on the walls (probably in violation of a few "no tape on walls" rules.. shh) and spread keepsakes around the room. I've lived in some pretty interesting places... a refurbished dorm in California, a tiny fifth-floor apartment in Rome, a room above a doctor's office on a busy street in England... but none of these places remained "home" for more than a year. I'm the master of packing my life into suitcases. But this year I graduated and got married, so the vagabond student days are over, and now one wish for the future is to make a home of my own. It won't be quite as pink as this one, but I hope it will be just as full of love and creativity. And luckily, the addictive world of Pinterest gives plenty of inspiration, which I'll be sure to share here!
