Apartment Projects are Contagious

You know the saying about how good deeds breed good deeds? It’s the same in our house with projects. We do one and we get the bug. The only acceptable bug to have in our house as far as I’m concerned. Today, … Continue reading

Nursery Shelving

I definitely want to put a bookshelf in Aiden’s room, but I don’t know if I want to do a sling bookshelf like this One Step Ahead one http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=GC7&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B00559SAWQ&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifror just use an overall storage unit like the IKEA expedit or trofast. In the end I just want it to be easy for Aiden to put things in their general place when he gets older.

I started a blog!

Maybe let’s start with the name of the blog.

For as long as I’ve had my own home (read: apartment), I’ve wanted everyone to take their shoes off at the door. With everything we are bound to step on outside, I can’t bear the thought of it in our home. When my son was born, it was the perfect excuse to finally enforce this rule! I always feel a little bad about making people take their shoes off, it can definitely be a pain (though I’m a barefoot person, so I do it anyway), but we have a basket of new socks for visitors to wear and keep so I hope that diminishes anyone’s annoyance.
I also thought it was an appropriate name for this blog because the most important thing to both my husband and me is that our home is open and comfortable for visitors. I will hopefully post some pictures soon of our apartment, but you’ll see that we go for space for friends over beauty (though we try for some of that too).
One day I hope that we can afford a house and to furnish it as we wish, but as for now we are a mainly IKEA residence. It frustrates me at times, but I think we were successful in making it our own. I hope you’ll agree!
