3x The Charm

This week I sat down, turned off my phone and computer, and read. No t.v., no music, just me and my book. It seems so simple, but honestly, it's something I haven't done in forever, which is sad considering I used to be "that girl" growing up who was constantly reading.  {I even once pretended to be sick in lieu of a date night with Doug so that I could read. Confession: It was Twilight. I'm not ashamed.} Somewhere along the way I've forgotten to make time for those little moments that I truly treasure, which I'm trying to be better at lately, especially since life has felt so chaotic. There's just something about a book and no distractions that helps me get back to a peaceful mind frame. I hope to make a little more time for those moments this weekend.

How adorable is the above apartment? I love when functionality meets design - it makes a living space so much more...livable. The bike on the wall, the wooden crates, the mismatched stools...a space like this is so creative and exactly what I'd love to turn our apartment into. On that note, I've got a somewhat funny and odd announcement regarding our bedroom coming next week. Hint: It involves our bed in a not-so conventional place. Doug's been drawing up floor plans & sharpening up his carpentry skills for our new project. Any guesses as to what it is?
