Oh Jen, Where Art Thou?

So my 3 posts a week went out the window here at the end of January, and I do profusely apologize for my absence! I wanted you to know that I had a very good reason.

Upon my return from Portland, work got inescapably busy which was manageable enough, but a fortnight ago my life turned ridiculous. After a nasty leak from our shower and house damage (water streaming from the ceiling into the living room!!!!!!!), not having a usable shower for five days, living through noisy machines and repairs… I’m moving!

Thankfully, I’m staying in the same building so the move is a bit easier, but organizing everything is still an absolute pain. Hiring movers, moving your utilities, renewing renters’ insurance, furniture deliveries… and doing all of those things outside of my normal work schedule (not to mention doing it all last minute) has been both daunting and overwhelming. I’m grateful that my property hasn’t been particularly damaged (other than my couch, but I’ll survive); the leak wasn’t too far from my bookcases, and if those books were damaged I probably would have lost my gosh darn mind.

As you can imagine, however, all of these things have taken up a significant chunk of my time, hence my absence from updating three times a week.

So here’s where I’m at…


Considering that just a few weeks ago, moving wasn’t even on my mind for the immediate future… things are going incredibly fast!

I’m grateful that friends of mine are helping me move over the long weekend while the movers are coming to haul the bigger items. Here’s a glimpse of my kitchen and living room:


The best part about all this? I get to decorate. The space I’m moving into has just been renovated with all laminate floors, new appliances, cabinets, counters, and renovated bathrooms… and I get to style it! You’d best believe it’ll be super geeky, once I figure out what to do with everything.

In the meantime, I hope you’re doing well – and I hope to get back into my schedule soon! My instagram/instagram story will likely be the most updated spot for the goings-on and shenanigans related to all this, but I’ll definitely be giving you a tour of my home once it’s done (and probably in the midst of the madness too), so keep your eyes peeled. 🙂

xo Jen
