Checking in: July 2014

As I was perusing my Feedly, this post on Design Crush popped up. I had planned to do a little Instagram recap this month since it was so lovely, but I'm much more into words lately (believe it or not). So here goes: 

  • Making: space! I've been on a roll tearing through closets & bagging up items to donate. 
  • Cooking: tonight it's pasta but giving Blue Apron a go next week!
  • Drinking: my morning coffee and cans of seltzer.

  • Wanting: a beach day.
  • Looking: a writing project to tackle next.
  • Playing: Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Talking Heads 
  • Deciding: which direction to lay the new flooring I'm having installed.
