Apartment Update: My Dining Chairs Arrived!

Last week my dining room chairs arrived! I love having an actual table and chairs now...hooray!

Not only do I love having chairs, I specifically love these from 55 Downing Street! They're so perfect for the style of my apartment- updated shabby chic. The tufting is just feminine enough to dress up the dark wood table, and the chair's legs match surprisingly well with the table. I couldn't be happier :)

Dining Chairs / Curtains: Crate & Barrel, but sold out :(

The chairs are really comfortable and look pretty expensive (they're not! You can steel a pair for just $350, which is a wonderful deal.) Oh, and I only got two chairs, because my dining table is tiny at just 36" diameter. The dining room is so small itself, that it really couldn't take any larger of a table. Two chairs look perfect around the table, and accommodate McCann and I. When I have friends over, we will just pull up a cute bench I have in another room. Should work well! 

Do you like?! 
I can't wait to show you more of my apartment soon. It's really coming along! 

Happy Tuesday!

Long Distance Relationships + Cottage Hill

I'm so thrilled to introduce you to a new wedding and lifestyle magazine, Cottage Hill. If you haven't heard, Cottage Hill celebrates lives worthy of an elegant and meaningful legacy. It’s a place where marriage is more important than color palettes, authentic work and influence is more important than popularity and living a rich life serving others is the most elegant lifestyle of all. Friends, I totally believe in this mission. If you do as well, you can join me in being a part of the Kickstarter campaign to raise money to support this beautiful magazine's Homecoming Issue!

That's why I'm honored to be one of the first little features on the Cottage Hill blog today! As you know, my boyfriend and I started off our relationship being long distance, so Katie, the editor of Cottage Hill Magazine, asked me to share a bit about our story and shed some light on the tough, but rewarding dating scenario that long distance is. I love this guy with all my heart, and I hope this piece on long distance inspires and encourages. My hope is that through our love story, more couples will say "I can do that". There's nothing greater than God placing such a great person in your life when you least expect it. 

Head on over and read our story. And please do share yours in the comments today! How did you meet your significant other?! :)

Have a wonderful day!
