A New Appreciation

As we get closer and closer to move date, our apartment is getting closer and closer to looking like a disaster zone.

Boxes are piled anywhere that doesn’t have furniture occupying the floor space.
What toys LJ has left out are sprawled all over his room and the hallway.
Cooking should be considered an Olympic sport for how many hurdles I have to jump over.
Let’s not even talk about LJ’s attitude. The mess is obviously messing with him.


With all this chaos, I have found a new appreciation for the little things, like clean clothes, a tantrum free day, not having to cook dinner, and my favorite new necklace from my friend Kashoan at Krafty Kash.

How could a vintage dictionary “fashion” pendant not make me smile?

I met Kashoan at CE, and I instantly fell in love with her beautiful pendants (she was pretty awesome too, I guess ;) ). She’s lucky enough to live in a part of this country that’s rich with history, antiques, and all the awesome vintage stuff that LA is simply too new to have :(   My fashion pendant is made from a vintage Webster’s Dictionary….how cool is that?!

Necklace: c/o Krafty Kash, Sweater: Loft, Leggings: Target, Boots: Annie, Belt: Old Navy, Ring: Charming Charlie, Watch: Michael Kors

With all this chaos around me, this little thing is definitely a big thing to me!
