My blogging schedule since moving has been... erratic, to say the least. December was kind of a mess for me. I was so anxious to move that I had a hard time concentrating on anything. I constantly felt behind in my work, and was so looking forward to getting the move over with. I somehow thought that once I moved things would just fall into place but I'm definitely still struggling to establish routine here. Owl get the hang of it soon though, don't you worry! I finally got my office mostly in order last night, that should definitely help.

Jeff and I were both nervous about moving in together. I mean, we've been dating for nearly three years now but we're both people who truly treasure our alone time. As much as I felt like it was a little lonely living by myself at times, I was worried about having to share my space again. Our new apartment is honestly the perfect space for us though. It's not huge but the way it's laid out makes it perfect for just squirreling yourself away and chilling. The fact that we each get our own office is a godsend! It's also ridiculously soundproof too. His office isn't that far away from mine, and I know he listens to his music really loud but I can't hear a thing! Anyway the point of that was that even though I had planned to squirrel away in my office and work my tail off, I've been having a hard time pulling myself away from settling in, and making this place ours. Also, cuddling! Cuddling takes up a lot of my time now that the four creatures I like to cuddle live in the same house.

I am really happy these days. I couldn't have even dreamed of it being this much fun to finally share a space with Jeff.  I'm trying really hard to get back into a routine where I spent a good chunk of my day typing out words for you to read but sometimes it's just more fun to sit on the couch, watch American Pickers, and try not to happy cry about the fact my pets are finally becoming real friends. I sure hope your 2017 is off to as equally wonderful start.

  7. I've been eyeballing Loly in the Sky shoes for so long but I never really wear flats. Do you find them comfy?

    1. Yes! I love them!

      Word of advice though - most Loly in the Sky shoes sizes run kind of funny. On their website they make note of it so be sure to pay attention in case you have to buy a different size than your normal. I know I've had to order both larger and smaller sizes depending on the shoe.
