BUT then it all got frantically pulled together and, after only a couple of nervous breakdowns each, Boyfriend and I moved into the perfect house on the 18th. HURRAH! And it was even more wonderful than we'd remembered and I love it so very much. Even if only a handful of rooms are furnished and we have a ton of re-decorating to do.
Sadly, the study/reading room will be one of the last to get finished because even though I know that its importance is well above silly things like doing the main living room, Boyfriend does not agree. Plus, decorating the room plus fitting it out as a proper study/reading room? Expensive. STILL, there will eventually be a series of pictures to follow on from my Reading Room Wishlist posts earlier in the year.
So I've read a lot of pretty great stuff and I am excited to write about it all. Soon, friends. Soon! Which was really the point of this post all along, actually...that I'm not dead, I just don't have the internet.
