I don’t know how many times I’ve told Mike “ok, I am done now” when it comes to decorating or re-arranging our apartment. It is probably a natural feeling that we slowly get tired of looking at the same thing over and over again after 4 or 5 years. I love our apartment, but I do feel like we are outgrowing the place. Since finding something new is a task that might as well run under the working title of “mission impossible” (trust me, I’ve been looking since March…), I decided to just work with what we have and continue to purchase new items to make me happy….
I actually wanted to wait a bit longer to show you our updated living room since I am currently still waiting on a new shelf (as seen on Snapchat today) and want to change a few more things around. “Unfortunately”, I am a little too in love with our new rug, so I went ahead and snapped some first impressions for you today. There is still a bit of work to do, but in the meantime I am loving the way our cozy living room is coming along. …
Our rooftop deck is without a doubt my favorite “room” of the apartment. It is like a second living room outside. During the colder months of the year, I often feel like we’ve outgrown the place, but once summer comes around we gain an extra room and all of a sudden I am madly in love our home again. Over the years, the deck has developed into a place where we spend most of our free time with lots of friends….
Summer is my thing. I love the sun, I love the warm weather and I love being outside. Nothing beats a weekend spent on our deck (= my happy place) with friends, good music, casual BBQs, lots of positive vibes and soaking up the sun. I am well aware of the fact that my life can be stressful at times. And while I fully enjoy what I do and love how much I get to travel, I do realize that our body has certain needs….
