Odds and Ends

I've been collecting all sorts of things to decorate my apartment and I am very excited. Anna movies in at the end of August. I have everything in a pile waiting for her arrival so we can decorate together!

Last weekend, I went to visit my grandparents and helped them pack up a bit and sort through some stuff. My grandparents are moving closer to my aunt in Portland. They have been having a lot of a health problems and the whole family feels they should be closer to a family member in case of another crisis.

My grandma gave me all sorts of things to fill my apartment. I am so excited! The coolest part is that she gave them to ME. I'm going to have a touch of my grandma with me and that warms my heart. One of my favorite things she gave me is a old fashioned yellow kitchen-aide mixer.  I've been eyeing one for a very long time and I am really blessed to have my grandma give it to me.

I also got a lot of kitchen items. I love cooking and lately have been doing it more and more so this warms my heart. I feel like my apartment is really coming along and when Anna moves in it will really start to feel like home! I can't wait to get some things on these awful white walls! My next project is my porch. I do not know what to do with it! Any advice?

I'll definitely be posting pictures of my place as soon as things start coming along. For now, gotta keep you in the dark. I know, I know. It kills you. ;)
