so you all know my beebs by now.if you don't, here is the complete history of beebs - n - boots.
that's not what im going to focus on today.
i am going to focus on one of the best aspects of having a best friend.
best friends help you dream. and thats exactly what my blackbird has inspired me to do again.
just by simply looking at her, im inspired to go out and conquer the world.
she inspires me photographically, business-wise, and homey wise... not to mention straight up inspires me
to be a better person. i kind of view the world double protectively now because of beebs.
before it was like, okay i have to be a hard-ass because bug is watching. now its-
i have to be a hard-ass because bug and beebs are watching and i have to set a good example.
she makes me a better person. a LOT.
and she's helped me envision a whole new life for myself. one i'd completely forgotten i wanted!!!!
well, not totally, but i didn't think i could do it alone. i always pictured this life with someone specific,
and now- i know i can do it on my own. and that is cottage living!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
years and years ago i lived with one of my best friends (at the time) in an ADORABLE cottage downtown.
it was built in 1907 by twin brothers from new york who married twin sisters from brooklyn.
and they all moved out here together. and the sisters still wanted to live together, so the brothers
built them cottages right next door to each other.
to this day, its my favorite place i've ever lived.
i want to live in a house like that again. and i've started preparing for it!
whether it be a small cottage by the sea, a cabin in the mountains,
an apartment on a hill, or a cramped closet in new york or l.a.,
i am ready to bring the warmth of my new life to a new space :)
i've started gathering new and repurposing old furniture and updating and vintage-izing my existing pieces...
i've been making art for the walls and collecting adorable sheets for the beds.
my problem is, i like 800 different styles. i LOVE vintage, but like mixing it with modern. i love a 50's kitchen, but right next to it i'd have a shabby chic living room, and a bright modern bedroom. im all over the place.
so i need tons and tons of inspiration pictures to help bring my styles together.
i am SO excited to get into my cottage in 2012!!!!! i just absolutely cannot wait.
here are some of my inspiration pictures! I LOVE YOU BEEBS! thank you for inspiring me every day
to live my life to the beautifully maximized fullest. and thank you for reminding me how to dream and plan. <3
