I've been avoiding writing this post for a while, even though I have been thinking about it since before Christmas. Christmas, by the way, was really great. A few shots from our week that we took off:
The next task was filling the room with things that would inspire me, and make it a warm, personal space. Both the Hay bale and House Mountain paintings were huge purchases for us, involving a lot of disciplined saving. Both of us adore them, and make a point to enjoy them every day. The window boxes were on sale purchases from a couple of years ago, and I had no idea what I should do with them. Then one day, it occurred to me that they were meant to be filled with yarn.
I have to say something about this, as it's one of my favorite things in the study at the moment. Like a lot of you, I really enjoy trolling around etsy when I'm looking for inspiration, or just want to kill 5-10 minutes. A few months ago, I stumbled upon this shop, and fell in love with her work. Not only that, but when it arrived, everything was packaged with such care and creativity, I felt like I hadn't even paid for it--it was like receiving a gift! Check her out, for yourself or others--you won't be disappointed!
Work is going well, albeit busily. I am going to be taking on some new responsibilities this year, and am excited about that. Salmaan and I are going to take some weekends away, and try not to let ourselves get worn out with work. On that note, by the end of the summer, I'm hoping to share with you some very exciting news regarding Salmaan's career, but more on that later.
As for right now, it's time for some veggie soup, and a little bit of housecleaning. Happy Sunday!
