Finally, some pictures of our current nursery/bedroom! For those of you who don't know, November and I have been living with my parents since last October. In November, they rented a beautiful home in sammamish and let us rent out the huge bonus room as our bedroom. It's lovely and spacious and bright. There is plenty of room for my bed, her crib, our closet, dressers, and toys. Like always, I feel a lack of art on the walls but I'm pretty happy with the colors and decorating we've achieved on zero budget. It may not be one of those fancy Pinterest-worthy rooms, but it is our room, it's cozy, and we love it!
I think we've made a good use of space! In other residential news, I'm actually planning on moving in the next couple months, preferably around August 1st. Don't get me wrong; I love living here, I love being close to family, November loves having easy, frequent access to grandma and grandpa; I absolutely love this house, I've always wanted to grow up in a place like this. But here's what I'm learning; I've GROWN up. This is the house my child and teen self are in love with. My current self belongs in Seattle. I love Issaquah, I love working here, I love the fresh air, I love the mountain greenery, I love visiting here. But I'm a Seattle-ite at heart. I love being close to my favorite beaches and parks. I love being in walking distance to my favorite shops. It's where I most enjoy living. And as much as I love getting to see my family every day, there is a part of me that craves independence and my own control over my space and quiet when I want it. I'm in no way desperate; my situation is comfortable and enjoyable. But moving out is a goal of mine, and if the universe flows this dream into my life, I'll take it! So look forward to yet another nursery set-up in the future!
