We Did.

my roommate jaime and i just laid down new flooring in our bathroom.
no big.

we live in an awesome old apartment building with all the character and space you could want, all within walking distance of class/coffee shops/restaurants. unfortunately, like most awesomely old places, the bathroom was SEVERELY lacking. think old, cracked, dirtynomatterhowhardyoumopped pink and white tile floors.

so today we, being the do it yourself girls that we are, marched into lowes and bought a precut slab of vinyl "tile". the guy at lowes all but laughed in our face about what we were planning on doing: laying a piece of this precut floor on top of our existing tile, with no adhesive. RUDE. i think i may need to take pictures to show him how successful we were.

so basically now, jaime and i are going to start making our bathroom what we've wanted all along: a clean, simple space that doesn't make you cringe every time you step into it.

hooray for today.

hello world

Happy November! It's officially Christmas season here.
I guess I want this blog to share all the little joys and beautiful things i encounter each day that make this world that much more wonderful. I honestly believe that if everyone took time to slow down and recognize the tiny, special nuances of life, the world would be a nicer place.
I'm oversimplifying things a bit, but who cares?

Thanks for being here, here goes nothing..
