laying down our roots
well, it still looks like a warehouse in here, but at least the piles of boxes appear slightly more organized! josh and i are on a mission today to get our new place in some state of live-ability. we’re also in furniture-shopping mode [and seriously planning a pilgrimage to IKEA/west elm in charlotte tomorrow!].
so, i hope you will pardon my scattered thoughts during this unsettled time. i don’t even have a desk to write at anymore!
this one at ecko is pretty sweet, though
while i tried out desks for blog-ability, josh ‘tested’ the chairs . . .
finally, it was time for dinner . . .
a birthday surprise!
when m and k invited us over for a casual summer gathering, i had no doubts about the meal would be fantastic + gourmet . . .
beautiful girl with a beautiful bottle
lots of lovely wine was consumed
dinner: grilled chicken with scape + basil pesto orzo and braised greens
it turned into quite the wild evening . . .
k even baked me a cake!!
i think you can all guess my wish . . .
the first retreat post [with tomorrow’s assignments] will be up tonight!
