Interior design when moving in together

I find it fascinating that 2 humans - any 2 humans - can join together all their quirks and expectations and decide to co-habitate. I mean, we're all so strange, how can we find another who's just the right amount of strange to watch you clip your toenails and share the leftover pizza? And then there's the combining of STUFF. Both people bring baggage with them - no, not that kind of baggage - I'm talking about the literal kind. 

Don't worry, I've got you covered. Here are my top 4 tips for combining stuff when you move in with that wonderful person in your life - and have to figure out what to do with all that {maybe less}wonderful stuff that moves in with them.

Learning to look under your bed - facing the boogie monsters

It is not a new thought that fear is the opposite of love - or even that all emotions can be boiled down to variations of these two primal essentials.

On the most surface level, doesn't it seem magic that I can write them on a page (or a screen) or I can speak them aloud and you can understand my thoughts? It's almost like magic ...

I Don't Care What Your Sofa Looks Like. Yes, really.

I stand by my claim: it's not about what your sofa looks like. It's all about which sofa will help you tap into the life that you want to be living. And while it may seem trite to attribute such significance to a piece of furniture, it is much more than that. It is a piece of the life that you live. It is a little nugget in the greater vein of your day-to-day.
