all is better with fresh flowers inside a messy apartment.

our rental has been a bit of chaos these past few days. we're actually moving soon {to where hasn't exactly been confirmed yet} and so the books have come off the shelves, decorations taken down and clothes purged and donated. it's been easier packing for a move this time around because over the past two years we have gotten rid of a lot of things, still packing for a move seems always so chaotic. so i bought fresh flowers and placed it right in the middle of it all.

  6. Goo luck with the move! I'm dreading our next move. We've accumulated so much in the 4 years we've been in our current apartment. Parring down and sorting it going to be an epic task.

  14. oh my. moving feels so overwhelming for me. we just moved at the start of the new year and it took a lot out of me. for starters, it was the first move I had done in about 6-7 years (we were long distance so he moved in with me when we decided to be seriously together). And this was the first move we had to do as a couple so of course, we accumulated much more than I imagined in my mind! It was also a surreal experience because we were leaving a place we had together as a couple. Granted, it was him moving in with me but, it became ours since we grew as a couple there and we got married and lived the first years of our marriage there. When we moved, it was a realization that we had a lot of STUFF and we also needed/wanted to purge a lot of unnecessary items. It felt good but stressful at the same time. You are so good to pick up some fresh flowers to spruce up the midst of "chaos." (And also so smart to have purged a lot beforehand.) I think that's a wonderfully calming way to introduce something pretty into a home that begins to unravel for a move.

    1. moving can be so so overwhelming. i actually used to really love it for some odd reason but after like the fourth time i was over it. hopefully after this move we won't be moving for a long while. :) and yes! so glad we did get rid of a lot of things. it just didn't make sense to lug around a lot of things we hardly use anymore.. oh and also bills from 2006... what?!
