moving away can feel really gut wrenchingly lonely. i remember how this feeling once felt when i first moved to miami, before i even started my blog. i knew nobody (except matt), i had no car, and i worked in an office with only one other person. i spent a lot of time alone.
after the excitement and dust has settled here in NY, i felt my first tinge of loneliness this weekend. i have my family here, i have friends, but it's the resetting and refinding of routines that hurts the heart. i had weekly dinner dates with girlfriends in miami, i had a group of blogger friends, i knew local faces on lincoln road. i know that i will 100% feel that here, soon, someday. just not yet. i snapped these alone in my home tonight. sometimes when i feel lonely, taking pictures makes me happy.
what do you do to cure loneliness? ♥
for our room, i really wanted to play with masculinity and femininity. we picked a lavender wall color and paired it with all vintage furniture that has an industrial feeling to it. the drawers and armoire are both vintage, from upstate NY and our bed is from IKEA. My absolute favorite part of the room though, of course, is my clothing rack which was handmade by Patrick from Monroe Trades. He is so talented & his rack seriously completes our room. It makes my life much easier to have the extra closet space & to coordinate my outfits for the week!
Hope you loved the tour :)
