You guys, I just booked a one way ticket to NYC! Now all that is left to do is pack up my clothes and swipe our place clean of furniture and toss-able knick knacks before we head on out for good next weekend. I am counting down the days in excitement, while at the same time trying to cram in all of my favorite San Francisco activities. So many places left to eat, drink, shop and see. Not to mention friends/family members to spend as much time as possible with! It’s bittersweet.

One thing, among many, that I am looking forward to is having a bare apartment to decorate. Nothing like starting from scratch, right? I have been collecting inspiration here and there for a couple of months, but would LOVE any home decorating blog/website recommendations, if you have ’em!

    Hey I just started following your bog recently, and I love it! And by the sounds of it, you’ll be living near me when you move! In my biased opinion, lower Chelsea is the best place to live in Manhattan. You’ll love it :)
