1/ a few of my favorite books on this bookshelf
2/ new anthro cups on my kitchen shelves
3/ chalkboard decal that always has a grocery list on it
4/ coffee table (need to share the DIY for it still!) with my favorite holiday candle
5/ next to the staircase, my plant soaking up some sun
6/ a small section of the gallery wall
7/ my stack of InStyle magazines next to the TV
8/ a cozy seat in the living room
9/ magazine rack next to the couch

I’ve lived in my current apartment for almost 2 years now (so crazy) and I haven’t really shared much of it on the blog.  I just feel like it’s always evolving and has never been ready for a full-on dedicated post.  But eh, we’re thinking about moving again so I thought I’d better take some photos of the place before we jump ship.

Speaking of jumping ship, I’ve officially deemed “apartment hunting in Santa Monica” as the most difficult task I have ever tried to complete.  You think you’ve found the perfect place and then BAM it has no parking.  Or it has no stove.  Or it has no doors.  Something weird like that.  Really, landlords of Santa Monica?  Get it together.

Speaking of getting it together, this weekend was so unproductive and I loved every second of it.  Lazy weekends are the best. I did go to UNIQUE LA on Sunday, which was amazing by the way.  But other than that, I spent a lot of time on the couch, catching up on shows, knitting, reading, writing – lots of happy things.  Unproductivity is the best, am I right?
