As I was uploading these images the Typo Negative song Black No. 1 popped into my head, haha. It's been years since Ive heard that song, but it was like my anthem when I was 15. Funny how stuff comes back to you like that. I wore this outfit last friday when James and I went on a date. It had been so long since we had gone out just for fun, and it was so needed. When your in a relationship for a long time, inevitably there are highs and lows. And during the lows it can be so important to get back to the two of you. It can be hard sometimes with all the day to day stuff going on, and for us, weve had alot of big emotional changes happen in our life over the past 8 years weve been together. Working through these times together is challenging, and can even rock your foundation. When that happens, its time to start building it back up, brick by brick. Getting out of our day to day space is big for us, especially for me b/c I'm home all day everyday. I can tend to be a big hermit, literally only going to the post office for weeks on end. So when we do get out to do something other than grocery shop, its always a nice detour from the daily.
I haven't been on my blog as much as I'd like the past few weeks. I'm in full on makeover mode in my studio and back room. I'm redoing my studio from the ground up and it's been a huge task to weed out the things I don't use or need anymore. I'm a bit (alot) of a packrat. Ive been PURGING. Getting rid of things left and right. And I'm still not done. Now I want to do every room in my house again. It has been so freeing. I have a full size couch piled sky high in our garage of things I'm letting go of. I'll share the makeover when I'm done! And Ill be sharing pics on my instagram through the process. Ive never done a whole room makeover before. Ive rearranged my rooms hundreds of times, always using everything I already own, which is pretty much all stuff that's been handed down to me. It's exciting to create my dream studio space. Eeeekkkk!!! I can't wait to sit down and create my next magazine in this fresh space!
