in march, the husband + I made the decision to
ditch take a break from suburb life.
ever since moving away from new york city (3 years ago), we have really missed the walkability of our neighborhoods. unless it required crossing a river, I made a point to walk. we wanted to get back to that. (at least for awhile). des moines has thee most amazing downtown area. it continues to grow + become even more exciting. so it seemed like a fairly obvious move. although, we had to part with a good chunk of our furniture and purchase new pieces (the joys of apartment living). we are now nearly settled into our new place + comfortable calling it home. we are taking full advantage of walking everywhere; the farmer’s market, to dinner, the local baseball games. so let me show you around ..
don’t you just love our coffee table? (yes, we are using a galvanized tin turned upside as a coffee table). it’s a temporary fix. we just got a brand new couch. when it was delivered, we made the executive decision to skip the coffee table and get a sofa table to go behind the couch. that has yet to be picked out + purchased. #WorkInProgress. we are still using + loving the patio table and blanket ladder my husband made. and recently added to his DIY collection, our shelf + coat hanger by the front door.
