Moving Weekend!


Ok, so it's only 1/2 a block away but I'm stressed and feel overwhelmed nonetheless! I've spent every night this week packing. But to be honest, I still have so much to do before tomorrow!

I also tackled the big task of going through all my magazine this week. I kept only the images I loved and purged the rest. It wasn't easy parting with my beloved collection of Elle Decor, Glamour, and Vogue (I'm keeping the House Beautifuls!), but I suppose it was time I streamlined anyway. 

A special boy is even catching a red eye into Chicago after work tonight just to help me (despite the fact he has a big presentation on Monday to prepare for)! How spoiled am I?

But a painful weekend of moving is a small price to pay for loving the home you live in. I feel very lucky to have found it! And as I'm sure you can all relate, nothing is as exciting as a blank canvas with which to design your new space! 

A little note: It's going to take a few days to get set up with internet in my new apartment, so I'll be away from the blog for a couple days. In the meantime, I'd like to leave you in the good company of a few special ladies. They always bring a smile to my face and inspiration to my day. Please stop by and say hello! 




Wishing you a wonderful, relaxing and fun weekend! See you soon! xoxo Crystal

Good luck! Moving is tough but it's such a good feeling once you settle in, shower, and spend that first night in your bed in your new home. Have a great time decorating!!

Fabulous photos, Crystal! Lovely...I hope the big move goes smoothly -- and that very special person, is so special indeed -- how sweet of him to come and help! :) I believe you are just as special to him...

Hope you have fun this weekend, enjoy some good food at the end of the day, and don't forget to put your feet up! :)

Also, thanks for the mention -- you are such a sweetheart.

I hope the move went well! I adore the picture of the gal surrounded by magazines. I try to go through my pile of magazines and scan the inspirational images and toss the issues. It's a lot of work!
