As you have heard me say in the past I am a true city girl right to my soul so moving out to the "burbs" is a big change for me. Looking back, when I came to this Cambridge apartment I was a young girl without much direction just searching for something to hold onto. It is a place full of life and optimism, just a quick walk to Harvard Square where the energy could carry me even on my most tired day!
It was here at this kitchen table where "Jace Interiors" was born and the office where I wrote my very first post on "CreateGirl". This is the living room where I jumped up and down when Daily Candy Boston gave me my first taste of being in the press and where reluctantly I let the Boston Globe in to profile me in my apt. It's the bedroom I cried tears of sadness as my heart was broken many times over and the front door I welcomed my friends new babies! It's my beloved 10' x 11' back deck, my oasis in the city, the place I spent my absolute favorite days and the place I planned many dinner parties with family and friends! As I pack up to leave I cry tears of joy and remembrance, you see I am moving on to a new chapter in a life I only dreamed I would ever have. I have found my prince charming in a handsome guy we will call "Vog".
I know I am not the only one who has ever been attached to a house and I know I will not be the last. Over the last few weeks I have wondered if it is because of my job there is such an attachment or if it is the end of a chapter? Either way I am such a lucky girl to have lived the city life for as long as I have. As the days go forward I am sure I will be sharing details of decorating a new house for two people with different styles, inevitably I will become my own client! So I say a public goodbye to my sweet little square full of unique stores and the most delicious restaurants and all the creativity that was just out my front door. I look forward to my new life as I close the door on my old one!
On Monday I will continue my recap of the Design Blogger Conference!
Enjoy your weekend and thanks for all the comments and support!
