BIG news!

I have some big news to share!

Hint: It has to do with my 2012 goals...

and no I haven't mastered the crane pose in yoga...

I'm moving out!
Yup, that's right, I'm leaving the nest!  Baby bird is going out on her own!  But not all alone...CJ is coming too!

We have just a week left before we move in!

Luckily, I already have most of the furniture we need.  We have a couch, bed, table, dresser, etc. and we also have very generous family members and friends to donate kitchen essentials and other odds and ends. 

I know this is a big step for me, personally, and a very big step for us as a couple.  We have been together for a little over 3 years, and at this point, we both really want to have our own place.

So, we found a cute and spacious one bedroom, and signed a lease!

A few months ago, I was planning on staying at home for another year, but circumstances changed, and we are taking a leap of faith.  The timing has been great so far, CJ just got a promotion at work, and I just got a raise.

Hopefully I'll be able to make our space look and feel like home.  I plan on sharing all my DIY home improvement projects on this blog.  Remember the table I refinished?  You can expect to see more of that sort of thing.

I'm really excited/nervous, and I wanted to wait until I told most of my close friends and family before sharing it on the blog.


  1. yayyy!! i'm so excited for you :) can't wait to help you move in!

  2. me too!!! I need your design skills!
