Exciting Announcement!

The view from my window

I am *officially* a condo owner! After learning that I had been accepted into a Ph.D program in March, I have spent the last few months condo "shopping" and have found the perfect place to call home and build my nest. Its proximity to campus, spacious living/dining area, and the gorgeous view were the main attractions that sold me.

I've been looking at everything from sofas and chaises, to kitchen appliances and lighting fixtures, making scrapbooks of some of my favourite things from Pottery Barn and IKEA. I'm really looking forward to decorating it in the next few weeks and calling it my own.

I know Douggie, Angelo and I will love it here!
