on applications and jute rugs
My internet time lately is restricted to a. applying for jobs and b. looking for housing. The former always leads to me leaving myself excessive notes that read "call so-and-so on 11/29" or "send follow up email in the morning" and the latter always leads to finding the perfect apartment/townhome/house and then dreaming of what I'm going to put in it. You see, we are now 95% sure we'll be moving to the valley of the sun come April. Which is kind of ironic, I think. We've always said "we'll go anywhere!" so for things to be working out so perfectly for us to end back up in AZ just seems ironic. Ironic and also so exciting. Family! Friends! THE SUN! We love it there and no matter where we actually end up, we'll always love the desert, so if that's were we go, we'll take it. Anyways. All of our furniture was purchased used and then we've had it for nearly 6 years... that's just a nice way of saying I hate it all and we don't want to move it. I feel like the day I buy a camel leather couch will be the day I say "I've made it." Lofty goals, over here. So dreaming of buying furniture excites me almost as much as finding my future career. Which leads me too this: I cannot wait to be hired. I have, what feels like a million resumes out there and there are a handful that just make me giddy to think about. So many good options. I'm hoping that the dust settles over applications and interviews and emails and offers over the next few weeks and we can start making plans. Real life, grown up plans. Boo-yah.
p.s. all the beautiful furniture you see is from west elm (where else?)
