Everyone has a signature. Not only the way they sign their name but also their personal style. As soon as our parents let us dress ourselves we begin to experiment with our appearance. Our parents might even let us decorate our bedroom. When I was in 4th grade, I had my room painted a bright sunshine yellow. My mother stenciled a white picket fence along one wall. Intertwined in the posts were tulips, lady bugs, and butterflies. My signature decorating wise hasn’t changed all that much. Well, I don’t want a fence on every wall but I still like that cottage, garden feel.
Nathan and I have had our apartment for a month now. We have lived together for just over two weeks, wow, we are actually married!
Ok so our apartment isn’t the worst, but it isn’t the most ideal either. I just thank God for putting a roof over our heads. The moment I first saw our apartment I thought “How am I going to live here?” Courtney had a great comment that summed up how it looks “dormy”. But as soon as our furniture and belongings were moved in, it already felt like more of a home. Now that we are almost settled in, I am ready to start putting our signature on it. I might not be able to repaint or change out flooring, but I can do a lot with staging.
I am hoping to share with you how I adapt our apartment to Nathan and my style as we continue to get used to married life. Be ready for the little changes to come!
