I'm back in California after spending the summer in DC and I have mixed feelings about it. I am one of those people that loves school, and I am beginning to get excited about the new year. I also get to see my friends and family out here, which is really nice. And I love my apartment here. It's so cozy and is the first place that really feels mine. Of course, none of these things compare to how much I miss my fiance, but they do help take a little of the edge off. Knowing that I was going to feel a little bummed when I returned, I decided to make a few purchases before my flight. I am a big believer in retail therapy in small doses. I wouldn't suggest anyone buy a car or anything huge, but sometimes having a new pillow waiting at home for you can be really exciting.
then I was already annoyed with myself.
As an aside, you all might wonder why I don't just read in the recliner? Here is the problem. When the recliner is upright, it hurts my neck. I'm too short and it the cushion on top hits my head in a weird place. When the chair is more reclined, I fall asleep. So I need a chair that is comfy, while still upright. Just like my red chair in DC. So I'm on the hunt for a good deal.
I also have a few more additions to share with you, but they were gifts, and one in particular is breathtaking, so I wanted them to have their own post. Until then,
