When we moved in to our apartment it was an empty shell, it takes a while to make a place a home; we’ve been living in our apartment for eighteen months now and it’s finally feeling like ours. I shared an apartment tour not so long after moving in and so much has changed since them (although somehow we still haven’t managed to finish all the painting, oops.)
I want to post a new, updated apartment tour because I love this little place of ours we’ve made. Until then I wanted share some of the things in our home that bring me the most joy.
House PlantsI’ve amassed quite a few plants and by “quite a few” I mean they are everywhere and I just keep adding more. I’m secretly trying to create my own botanical garden.. In all seriousness, plants bring me a lot of joy. I’ve learned a lot about choosing the right plants and how to care for houseplants properly; it’s an absolute joy to see new buds emerging on my orchids, growth spurts in my succulents, and watching my aloe vera try to take over the entire bookcase (that thing is out of control.)
Good FoodHaving a fully stocked, healthy and wholesome kitchen with the fridge and cupboards packed to the brim is enough to make anyone smile. We shop locally and try to buy seasonal produce only from the market; we cook fresh and experiment with our food. There are a few cookbooks I really recommend picking up if you, like us, appreciate fresh food and healthy dishes.
