First Small Step to a New Life

Posted on

After four years of owning Condo Leach, I’ve decided to put the condo on the market. It was a pretty easy decision, but still an emotional one. I love being a new homeowner and having a space to call my own.  It’s the perfect place for a young adult(s).  However, for the last few months, I’ve been working to reevaluate what I want to do in both my personal and professional lives. My conclusion for both is a minimalist lifestyle.

While the condo is considered minimal to most people, it’s keeping me located in Delaware and adding to my frustration of being stuck in the small professional world that Delaware has to offer. Outside of Delaware, there’s more opportunity, more creativity, and less judgment.  I’m looking to shed my frustration and start a new adventure.

Researching living options for my new adventure – maybe Airstream living?! We’ll see where I land, but I’m excited for the chapter. Selling the condo is the first small step toward my new life. Here’s to a quick sale!

I’m comin’ back!

After taking some time to evaluate the the purpose of door13, I’ve decided the purpose is the pure enjoyment of being creative and crafty and making Condo Leach my home (duh).

As a blog fanatic, I want door13 to be just like the blogs that I read religiously everyday. The key difference is that my favorite bloggers have gone through the hard work and hours to now blog as their job.

While the idea of maintaining door13 out of pure enjoyment might seem obvious, I think I got lost in the “what’s the point?” thoughts and just stopped doing what I enjoyed.

So ill be back in the next few days with the new door13! Happy weekend!

I know I’ve been quiet recently, but I’ve been taking some time to think about what I want in life and as well as what I want for this blog. 🙂 I’ll be back soon with some great content!

Until then, here’s some inspiration for you…something I saw over at VMac&Cheese for Victoria’s BTS series today highlighting Viviana from Fashion Truffles.  I’m trying to follow this as I evaluate things. Thanks ladies!


Best Dressed

One thing that I have always been obsessed with are award shows, so of course I watched the Oscars last night. Here are my choices for best dressed ladies:

I love that both Gwyneth and Rose wore dresses that were simple and elegant, but with a twist. Nice work ladies.

Who were your favorites last night?

Does it count?

Does it count as making my bed if I nicely fold the sheet back when I wake up?


No? I didn’t think so.

PS- excuse all the wrinkles.

I’ve been thinking a lot about life this past month about what I truly want in life…let’s chalk it up to the start of 2012 and new years resolutions that I set for myself.

I keep coming back to this…

I Love Lucy

Meet my new sidekick Lucy. I don’t know what life was like B.L. (before Lucy). I’m definitely turning into a cat lady.
