Three of my favorite things - homemade margaritas, a frozen pizza, and some good girl chat. I can hear many of you saying “YES, those are my favs too!” It’s funny to say but these have really brought joy to me lately.
Exactly 4 years after my dad left this Earth, I had keys in my hand to my own apartment. I had lived with my mom before to help with the recovery process. It was something we both needed, but it was time for me to have a life of my own. I remember the feeling I had when I was handed my shiny new keys. My first feeling was fear - was I ready for this, could I really do this, what if I hated living by myself. Fear was quickly replaced with excitement! I had a car full of apartment stuff, my friends and family were ready to help me begin this next chapter, and I couldn’t wait to make memories.
Currently worship music is playing on my TV, a Rose Water and Ivy candle is burning and I am wrapped in a blanket on my couch, which by-the-way fits perfectly in this space and thank goodness because definitely did not measure it before I bought it, with the same thought I had the day I got my keys. My apartment is a space that is open to come get away from life’s happenings and to just be. Originally I thought that thought for my friends and family, but turns out it’s what I needed!

Just a heads up - I don’t measure really anything
