|Blue dress to match my blue couch! Can't beat J. Crew dresses...or anything from J. Crew for that matter.|
I submitted pictures of my home months ago, and didn't really get my hopes up about being selected. I had all but given up when I heard back from them a month later. I was over the moon to hear that they liked what they saw. Pictures were taken 2 weeks before Christmas, and I've been a nervous wreck ever since. I even had a nightmare last night about readers not liking it, or me! Needless to say, I have been humbled by the response to my home and my story. Thanks to everyone that took a peek into my life. I hope you liked what you saw, and thank you for encouraging me to chase my dreams :) I'm scared to death of changing the course of my life after being fully immersed in the Army for the past 9 years, but I'm hopeful and excited for what the future holds. Thanks again everyone for making today special! Below are some of my favorite pics from the feature (Sarah Bradshaw took some amazing pictures didn't she?). Check out the feature if you'd like to see more!
|My "bar cart." I don't have space for any more furniture, so this'll have to do for now.|
|My living room area is my favorite place in my apartment! Always puts a smile on my face.|
|I wish I could say that my bedroom is always this tidy...|
|My jewelry/perfume area! I put a small bookshelf in my bathroom for extra storage because I don't have a linen closet!|
|Another J. Crew dress. Love how the polka dots jazz up a little black dress!|
