No Coat Necessary

So like what’s with this weather though? Said everyone ever this weekend. The whole 65 and sunny in December thing is all fun and games now but thinking about why it’s so warm is mildly terrifying to put it lightly. Pushing those thoughts aside, this weekend was gorgeous in Connecticut. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and my coats were resting peacefully in the coat closet as I had no use for them.

Anel and I spent almost the whole weekend working on the house- We set up my desk (I can’t wait to share my home office with you soon!), installed a new couch in the TV room, bought a new kitchen table, and re-organized a bunch of stuff we had thrown together when we first moved in. Today is the first day in weeks that I can say that I feel at home in my new house. It was rough for a while. I’m incredibly sensitive to the space around me so having an empty living room and rooms full of boxes was unsettling. See updates on Instagram and Snapchat (@lemonstripes).

Although we probably should have ventured out more, I’m so happy that we got the house in order. We left the house though, I swear! We snuck in a boisterous dinner party with friends and a much needed date night which were nice breaks from all the work.

  2. I agree, when my house isn’t together it’s so hard to get anything done or feel comfortable! Sounds like you got a lot done though!

  4. Such a cute look, Julia! I am the same way — everything needs to have a place before I can really feel relaxed. Glad your house is starting to feel like home!

  9. This is so cute, Julia! And totally with you on the weather. 🙂 So nice, right?!

    Mitch and I also have those days in which all we do is work on the house. But it pays off in the long run, for sure. 😉
