It’s the little things.

Ok, ok. So our kitchen is still in complete disarray and we don’t have a couch and our bedroom is still crowded with boxes.


As those of you who follow me on Instagram know, I’ve decided to celebrate the little victories when it comes to setting up our new apartment. Like, say, finishing the bathroom.

Another corner I can cross off my list? The entryway.
