I’ve never posted any pics of my current bedroom (we switched from the back bedroom to this one about 2 years ago). It was kind of on the back burner for a while with Veers/life/etc. but I’m finally pretty much done with it!!!!!!!!
The frames are all IKEA and the art prints above the bed were purchased during one of AllPosters.com’s big sale events=sooo much savings to be had–the Fahrenheit 451 print is my absolute favorite—it’s the one title that is in both my top ten books and movies (and I love Julie Christie; mod sixties always and forever!) <3 The ‘Pines in Fog’ is also from the sixties and the Times Square print is late forties

Have always loved this sign; why no pink though? Missed opportunity there for sure.
I actually tend to like family outings with Veers more than most of our outings with just the two of us before we had her. I’m not talking about evening activities like concerts, bars, etc. obviously, but things like going for a walk or even just to the grocery store feel more fun with her.
