It’s never been an issue at all (the office does have carpet, mostly for soundproofing reasons). However all dark floors show EVERYTHING. It’s insane. I love them but ugh. Really high maintenance.

So sorry!

We moved there from a stint in Chicago (so friendly!) and we’re originally from CA. We survived Bmore for 13 years-but it was tough. The best thing we did was move to Howard County. People were definitely friendlier-tons of transplants and the proximity to DC was great.

Quick question as we begin building a new home soon: I noticed you have mostly hardwoods throughout the house. Are you happy with this decision or do you wish you had more carpet? We’re considering having all hardwoods with rugs.

Your home is beautiful and your willingness to be honest about your adjustment is refreshing and reassuring all at the same time. Now, can I ask where is that print of Manhattan from (speaking of missing my city life . . .):)?

Our new town, Baltimore, is kind of scary and not always so friendly. We were renting an apartment in the Hillsboro Village and I miss Hot and Cold so bad! Also all the people watching. All kinds of people! And I’m so mad I didn’t get out to Franklin one last time! All of my cute dresses are from Philanthropy!

The map was one I bought on zulilly a while back, or one of those similar kids sale flash sites. It’s actually wallpaper but we have it tacked up for now (read: lazy).

Bedframe I’m fairly certain is from overstock.com and so are the nightstands! I have a problem with that website. :) The lamps are from Target.

These home tours are so nice for future home inspiration :)

This is my favorite line: “I’ve finally been able to find contentment in the present instead of constantly wondering what the future version of us looks like.” I don’t think I’ve got that one mastered!
