Our California Home: Blank Space

Before I jump into things, I've only just realized that today is the one-year anniversary for ATD! Time flies when you're learning how to be a wife and quitting your job and traveling the world and moving across the country and looking for a new job and starting a new job and paying 6 parking tickets and sleeping on an air mattress that you're really thankful for because you have a place to sleep and also your adoring husband is right there with you.

I'll get around to a more celebratory post here in a bit but TODAY we're taking a look at our new apartment in West Hollywood. If you aren't a fan of self-indulgent posts and/or white space, then this one isn't for you. Matty and I, we practically LIVE in white space.
