you know what is really hard? moving into a new home and wanting sooooo badly to decorate with new and fabulous things (and quickly) but putting on the brakes and taking it s.l.o.w.
before one box was set down in our new place i had my decor vision pretty well established. two couches in the family room (one comfy and one modern), a fabulous piece of art hanging above the comfy couch, a cowhide ottoman, and one or two accent chairs. the new dining room table (that we still haven't purchased) is a little rustic and a little chic and don't even get me started on the chandelier and dining room chairs i have in my head.
our bedroom is pretty much exactly as i want it- luckily i'm a bit of a minimalist when it comes to bedroom decor. but the downstairs den is lacking the sitting area, office space, and patio furniture that would make everything oh-so "perfect."
here's the thing. i've been slowly purchasing things...one at a time. this month i bought a picture frame for a piece of art that i love (and have owned for 4 months). i have to do thing slowly. i'm not independently wealthy PLUS i have other priorities that need to come first.
being an adult and making grown up financial decisions can be quite depressing sometimes...but worth it. i take pride in knowing that i have no debt, a savings account, and food on the table. plus my family does lots of fun things. we are lucky. our house is a bit bare for my taste. but that's ok.
