We stopped by our new apartment last night to do important things like pay the rent, sign the lease, check out the TURQUOISE WALL!!!



It was so nice! I think it was heated because the big pool felt like Hawaii when you stepped into it. It might be all the foliage around the pool too. It’s beautiful here. I’ll have to take more photos later. For now you’re stuck with my instagrams and not very many because I have this terrible fear I’ll drop my phone in the water.

Yay it's over!!

We didn’t actually move our stuff into our new place because yesterday was Bug’s Dance Recital. She did very well. It was a very exciting day. We stuffed a ton in. Even a morning beach visit.






But most importantly I wanted to relieve all your minds and let you know that…

Backing up.

I backed up my hard-drive.

    Looks beautiful! I love that wall and I love that Bug is looking so happy. You guys are back where you belong!

    Also very happy to see Carbonite on your computer. I don’t know how I ever lived without it.

    The wall looks fabulous! And a pool! So happy you’re back where you want to be, though I know you’re going to miss being so close to your family.

    Absolutely love the pic with both sets of legs dangling over the pier!

    So happy for you! Enjoy every moment and quit worrying. Seriously – you are a wonderful person & mother, and you are doing an incredible job. Life is too short to fill with negativity.

    The wall looks great! It reminds me of the color of the sea—perfect for your move back near the beach!

    I am a HUGE fan of Carbonite — my computer got a virus, erased the entire hard drive — Carbonite backup took about 2 days to restore — the tech guys were awesome when I had some questions — saved 16,000 photos.

    Congratulations to Bug on her dance recital — and on your turquoise wall and ALL of your hustling and bustling to get so much DONE!

    I am married to a computer guy (programmer/developer) and I get so lazy about my computers because of it…oops.

    Glad you will be in your place soon. I am looking forward to seeing how you use your new spaces!

    I cannot wait to see that chair in front of the wall…I actually dreamed about it after Iread about it…strange I know

    Wish I could make a quick pitstop at your new place before Glass Valley. Alas, I don’t thin the pilot would go for it.

    I LOVE that turquoise wall! I am thinking about an accent wall, too…do you mind telling me what color/brand your turquoise is? Thanks and good luck in your new home!
