It was fully my intention to have my house put together enough by now to photograph some of it for you, but it isn’t quite there yet. I’m taking my time hanging things on the walls and apparently unpacking my last few boxes. I haven’t even had my house warming yet.
People like to complain that we only photograph the shiny parts of our lives. When we’re put together and our house is clean, we don’t mind sharing. So here’s a little rough around the edges, real Jamie land. I didn’t clean for you. I just took some photos of what my everyday house looks like.
This time of year, when I get home from work I get to make dinner during golden hour (the hour right around sunset–or sunrise–that is the best lighting of the day). I wash my dishes, pack my lunch, practice synth for the worship band, and have a generally relaxing and rewarding evening in my little abode.
My apartment was built in the 40s. It is properly old, with real hard wood floors, a new fridge, and a return air vent that is the devil when you stub your toe on it.
So far I really love it. I like the neighborhood, I like the size, and the alone time isn’t so bad. I’m getting back into yoga and have revamped my fitness goals for this year. I have also found that I don’t mind cooking so much when I’m by myself.
My goal is to have some more polished photos for you soon, but to be honest, I’m kind of really digging this “lived in” representation of my home. Because this is what it’s like on the day to day, and I love it.
I’ll be back on Wednesday with my iPhone life from March, and then next week with some lake house photos!
Until next time,
