When we knew we were relocating to California, I ended up getting rid of many of my possessions to make the move easier, rid my life of excess clutter, and start anew. This meant donating and selling a large percentage of the vintage goods I had thrifted for years and years. I do miss some of the things I left behind, but I'm looking forward to adding "new" vintage goodies to our brand new home. These are some I would absolutely love to acquire for sure.

Being back in California has been making me yearn for a day trip out to the desert. I have been reminiscing of being young, taking road trips out to Las Vegas or Laughlin, sitting in the backseat with my headphones on and watching the sun set over rolling hills and endless cacti. I'm even finding the desert inspiring my home design now. Here's hoping for a possible mini vacation.
