tres exciting news!

hello, darlings! apologies for my absence over the past week or so.  things have truly been nuts in and out of the office and i feel like i haven't had a moment to spare.  but it's all worth it because i can now announce to my sweet readers that the beau and i are moving in together!  {kind of an appropriate post based on the last one, no?} we are very excited, a little nervous, but mainly ready to get this show on the road.  our move-in date is december 1 {fingers crossed}.  since he has very little {read: no} furniture to bring to this relationship {i'm not complaining.  no icky, ugly bachelor-pad furniture to deal with!}, it's mainly just moving all of the stuff i have and his clothes, so it should be a relatively easy move.  i say "relatively" because let's face it, moves are not easy.  or cheap.

can i just say how beyond excited i am for the blank canvas of a new {to-us. rental.} house?!  his parents have generously offered to buy us a new couch as our christmas present, and i'm using that as the catalyst for my ultimate goal of having my home look like the tory burch store in seoul, south korea.

i've gone slightly bonkers looking for brass anything and everything on ebay and craigslist.  i'm hoping the beau will be on board with getting a white/cream-colored sofa. and he won't notice if i slooooooooowly start to add bright orange and hot pink accents everywhere, right? RIGHT? and maybe a bit of leopard-print, just for good measure...

i can't wait to start moving in and posting pictures.  for those of you who are living with your hubs or significant other, any tips or advice you have would be much appreciated!

bon weekend, mes amours!

How exciting! My advice from 4 years of living with a significant other- if he says he needs his space or a night just for him, don't immediately assume he's upset with you for something or you've done something wrong. You'll occasionally need a night alone for just you or your space, as well. This was hard for me at first- I'd get upset thinking I'd done something to make him not want to spend time with me, but quickly realized it's normal!
