welcome to (sub)urbanity!

Hello! Thanks for stopping by my brand spanking new blog! I’m going through some big changes (good ones!) in my life and I find it easier to process things and make decisions when I write them out. Additionally, I’ve recently become addicted to the blogs of others at the same place in life as I am, and found them very helpful. So I’m hoping that through this blog I can provide the same sort of inspiration to others out there, as well as have a place to process my ideas and decisions.

Some basics about me. (Feel free to skip this) I’m a rare native of the Washington, DC area, having grown up in the Virginia suburbs – or “Nova”. If you’re not familiar with the city, it’s very transient, and it’s pretty unusual to run into folks who were born here, grew up here, and stayed here! My parents have lived in the same house since a month before I was born. After college I came back and moved to a younger, more urban area not far from my parents. I love it here, and I can’t imagine living anywhere else.

However, next month I will be taking the big step of moving in with my wonderful boyfriend of over two years, J. J owns a home further out from the city, so, I’m officially headed back to the ‘burbs! I am determined not to let this affect my stylish, youthful sensabilities, though! 😉 His home (soon to be “our” home!) is pretty sparsely furnished and hardly decorated at all. My goal is to create a chic, homey style on a very small budget!

Other things that I’m semi-obsessed with and will likely be turning up pretty frequently in the blog include (but are not in any way limited to) shoes, purses, books, feminism, politics, weddings and learning to cook. So, welcome, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you’ll follow my journey into fabulous domestication!
