our first home

I finally received an e-mail today from Southeastern Seminary regarding our housing assignment! 
I was beyond ecstatic to receive all the information and relieved that we officially have a place to live. *whew*

Now I've been reading all these great blogs on decorating and whatnot. Even though Alex and I have restrictions we have to work with [since, after all, we are renting from the seminary], we are trying to come up with some creative ways to make our apartment a reflection of our style. Some great resources are decor8 and apartment therapy. I love all the different designs featured on these sites and I appreciate that they are trying to be eco-friendly. Not that I know much about "being green" but I'm learning. 

And of course, ETSY, has a bunch of great finds. 

Just 23 more days until Alex and I begin our first great adventure as a married couple.

Yay! It is a good start that you got the apartment you wanted. For sure it is going to be lovely now that your decorating skills are in full bloom. Being aware is the first step towards "being green". If you have questions, remember that you dad is LEED certified (it means that he knows a lot about green design). Love ya.

hey kristel, if you're under restrictions, then a great place to shop would be IKEA! Check out their website. The furniture is very affordable and they are replicas of actual designer furniture. I'm sure you'll like judging by the links you posted (decor8 and apartment therapy). =0D
