we’ve been getting settled into our new abode and we are still taken back by how AMAZING it feels to be in this house. what with its gigantic windows and green garden, the lovely neighbors and the sheer amount of space, not to mention not having to deal with a crazy landlord, it’s seriously bliss. i love being here. in fact, we love it so much that even though we’re considering a little escape to an island paradise before baby-nori enters the scene, every conversation ends in “but, it’s so cozy in our house. do we really need to leave?”
below you will spy our dear friend emily price, who not only helped put together this giant shelving unit but did so with devon-i-won’t-read-instructions-but-it-better-turn-out-perfect-gundry. they listened to the new coldplay album on repeat and i hid in another room while dev struggled to reconcile the infinitesimally small scratch in the wood finish, and emily got down on her hands and knees to prove that not even from the baby-eye-angle could the flaw be seen. man, i love my friends.
and then add one ashley ludwin to the mix (who came armed with gourmet s’more fixings) and so naturally we had to re-enact the email our dear evbeff got from anthropologie that was littered with exclamation points about pattern mixing! because it’s the season! didn’t you hear?! where have you been! get your dots and stripes and checkers and faux fur out people! obviously, pattern mixing makes you lose your mind.
and then a bunch of friends came over and filled our pad with their awesome, hilarious energy.
and finally, here we are. the happiest new habitat dwellers with our raging REAL fire.
