The apartment I’m in right now is definitely home at the moment, but it won’t be forever. We’ve discussed and it’s realistically only got another year until we jump ship. So while my instinct is to continue decorating and changing the look of my home alongside my evolving personality and tastes, I have to kind of ignore that for the time being. I vowed to stop buying bulky decorations, any accents, or furniture for the next year. Then I walked into Anthropologie and I saw this gorgeous Moroccan wedding blanket.
I fell in love immediately for so many reasons. First, I love the bohemian but chic look of Moroccan wedding blankets when used well. I love 3-D embellishments (thank God for tassels), which this has no shortage of. It’s big and soft, which actually surprised me when I picked it up because usually something so pretty wouldn’t be comfortable. And finally, while it is pink, it’s that kind of “pink thing” that when used responsibly really adds to a room without making it overly feminine. Even Mark, who is usually the first to tell me when something is way too girly (even when it really isn’t), said this was something he could accept. Also, the price tag was awesome because Anthropologie had a 20% off sale of all home items. Heck yeah.
So yeah, I broke my rule kind of. But also not, because this blanket can easily travel with us and withstand time with us. It’s the kind of blanket you find a space for in your home. And over time I think it will continue to bring me joy. And isn’t that what really makes a house a home? Being surrounded by things that bring you joy and love? Kidding! I know it’s the people you share your home with. Except I still think I love my Kitchenaid more than the average human.
Now I’m finally headed to the airport to catch a red-eye to New York , the first time since last Christmas! From there I’ll drive to Ohio to be with family for Thanksgiving. In an effort to make the most of my limited vacation time I’m going to do my best to not be on social media, so Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
