If you’ve ever rented a home or apartment you’ll probably understand how hard it can be to turn a rental home into a nest, and if you can’t relate – consider me jealous. I’ve rented some incredible apartments, but I’ve always been limited on what I’m able to do to them to make them my own. It probably has a lot to do with me watching a little too much HGTV, but I’m always dreaming of which walls I want to knock down, what countertops I want installed, and how amazing a stainless steel stove would look in place of that ugly white one that I have. 

But over the years I’ve come to terms with the fact that until I have a house of my own demoing walls and installing countertops are probably out of the question (but if you happen to be a cool landlord reading this, let’s talk).

Last night I went to the movies and ate WAY too much popcorn, or is there really such a thing? Not when it’s covered in olive oil and parmesan cheese, right? 

Orlando found this white Christmas tree at a thrift store for $7, which is a lot cheaper than the one I found for $700. 

Ever since starting to work at The Park I’ve been able to schedule out blog posts well in advance, and it’s been a huge help for me. Here’s 4 reasons why you should do the same.
