You can guess from the title that I FINALLY moved out of my parents' house! Whoo! Bring out the champagne! Light up the fireworks! Haha. I'm only 6 days into 2018 and hot damn I'm already making waves. It doesn't feel real. I've been wanting to move out for a few years now, but I never thought I'd actually move out to the Bay Area with my lovely sweet boyfriend and afford rent. I've been working my butt off the last several weeks, balancing work and school while also fighting a nasty cough. Seriously though, everyone please cover your mouth. The flu right now is real gross. I'm so beyond grateful for my parents and my brother for helping me move in. We finished just in time before it started raining! And, all those flights of stairs really helped tightened my legs. It was hard for me to leave my mom with only the boys at home, but she knows what I have to do to keep moving forward and be successful in my life. I love her forever for that.
As I type this in our office/my closet while the boy sleeps in the other room, I'm excited to decorate our place together. Our place. Saying it makes me blush and fills me up with so many beautiful emotions that I want to cry. I know there will be challenges and struggles (cause duh), but when we get there, I know we'll be able to work it out together.
I hope you had a pretty sweet first week of the new year. I know I have. I'll post more post-room decorating soon! Happy Saturday, you cool cats!
PS. I love where I placed my mirror in this room. As for that dress, more details to come after the weekend.
