Losing sleep, finding happiness, and everything in between in 2021

One year ago:

+ we were still living in Florida. 

+ we were still living in a house that was devoid of personality + style. We were overwhelmed with our stuff that had accumulated over the years and never found the time to curate things that would bring comfort + warmth into the home. 

+ we were miserable. How could we still be living in a place that we disliked so much?


+ we moved back to Southern California + we’re still pinching ourselves and cannot believe we live somewhere that makes us so happy.

+ we lived by the beach for three months and it was amazing.

+ we bought a home that delights us every day.

+ we are buying things like rug pads and full length mirrors – who are we right now?

+ we are still surrounded by boxes and ongoing projects + I’ve never felt more at home.

So ready for 2022.

  1. After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. There has to be a means you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!

      Hi there –

      In the notification emails, you should see a link to “Manage Subscriptions.” By clicking on that link, you will have the option to remove their subscription to the comments on that page. I’m unable to do it for you.

      I hope this helps.
