me and my sister
I’ve been feeling a little down lately about being so far away from my family and friends in Florida. My sister’s college graduation was on Friday and there was just no way I could go. Getting from our home to Tallahassee in a short amount of time is not really an easy task. I never thought I would feel this way, but I actually miss Tallahassee a little bit. I love living in Virginia, but sometimes it just feels so weird that we're not close enough to drive there for something like graduation or a football game. (I'm embarrassed to admit that I cried during the beginning of the first FSU football game I watched in Virginia...when they showed Doak Campbell stadium and all the FSU fans!) My friends from college are all still living in Florida and often visit FSU. It feels like Nicholas and I are sort of cut off from that up here.
I found my sorority house on google earth!
When I’m feeling down I usually cheer myself up by shopping or redecorating. I can’t really redecorate right now since we are moving in about a month (which I could NOT be more excited about!!), but I am trying to come up with a color scheme for our new living room. I'm thinking something bright and cheerful, like yellow. I don't want it to be so bright that I want to redecorate in the winter though. Here are a few pictures I like.
Somehow I don't think the husband would be onboard with all that pink...
Where do y’all get your decorating inspiration? What are some of your favorite home decor color schemes?
I was still feeling down about not being able to go to my sister's graduation when my dad texted me and asked if I had skype. I didn’t, but I signed up and was able to skype with my parents the next day during their drive back to Orlando! My sister just got a new macbook so I can skype with her now too! I think actually being able to see them while we're talking might really help cheer me up! Apparently I am just about the last person to discover skype...because I started searching to see if anyone else I knew had an account and I found several people to add to my contacts list. Have any of y’all ever used skype?
Does anyone else live far away from their family? How do you cheer yourself up when you are missing them?
