New Space

Since we're moving to an island, we chose to sell or give away most of our furniture and some home decor items.  Basically, we're starting over.

So I've been looking at specific decorating styles and scouring craigslist for things available over in Hawaii.  Erik likes a clean, modern style but I like what is often termed "shabby chic" so we're trying to find a little common ground with our new place.


Pinterest has been a great inspiration.  I know practically everyone else has talked about how much they love the site, but I'm going to put my own plug in about it.  Because it's great.  Go take a look if you haven't yet.

Happy Monday!


  1. White is very peaceful and ethereal, but it's a bugger to maintain!

    We will miss you Alexis, and pray you adjust well to your new home.

    Much love~ Aunt Lisa

  2. And Happy Birthday! Have a great day~ Aunt Lisa

  3. How exciting for you!! :) I hope you enjoy it, I had a friend who lived there and she would rub in her days swimming with dolphins, boarding, or going to Dim Sum. She since had to move back to the mainland and really misses it, I think it gets in your blood. Your Aunt is right about white, its great but sooooo hard to keep clean! Can't wait to see more of your decorating idea pictures.

    1. Thank you so much! We're excited too, it's something completely different than what we're used to. It will be a crazy adventure. Did your friend live there for long?


Your comments make my day even brighter and happier than it already was. I just love hearing what you have to say!
