Wednesday... From The Outside In

We often spend a lot of effort focusing on what goes into our homes, but what about what's on the outside?

Home should be a place you feel happy to come back to. Somewhere you can lay your head and rest your boots.

And what better way to greet a tired traveler than with flourishing leaves or flowers by your door?

When people put effort into beautifying the outside of their homes the inside becomes so much more inviting.

In the city, it's really nice to see when someone do just that. The residents of this local Philly home get it, when will everyone else? :)

Happy Home

After living in an overpriced shoebox in Queens Village, a bug-ridden house in Graduate Hospital and a tiny  efficiency Downtown, the space that we now have in Fairmount is a breath of fresh air.

Last May, I threw a birthday bash for my boyfriend and our friend Mac sent us some photos that he took while visiting our home. Our apartment is definitely a work in progress, but this photo (and all of the empty space in it) makes me happy.
