Apartment Therapy Feature

apartmenttherapy :   Alison, Trevor and a Baby in 600 Square Feet — House Tour:   http://on.apttherapy.com/2RwrbV   

 Our apartment was featured on Apartment Therapy this week.  Such a thrill!  I have to say that I was pretty nervous about the whole thing.  First our house needs to be clean enough to have someone photograph it.  Secondly there are still many big plans I have for our place and not enough time to get it all done in time.  And finally I was nervous that our place was interesting enough or beautiful enough or designer enough.    But I am so glad that we did this!  I am completely overwhelmed by the sweet, thoughtful and genuine comments and emails I have gotten, from those of you who are living similarly small with children or hope to one day.  It is so great to know that there are other people out in the world who don’t think we are crazy for living in the city and in such close quarters with a toddler.  And to answer the most popular question, what will we do as Theo gets older or if we have more kids? Well we are taking it day by day.  And anyone that knows me well, knows this is a big departure for me.  I am a planner and a worrier/over-thinker by nature but motherhood has changed me (they said that would happen) and I am learning to live in the moment more and let go of things I can’t control (somewhat!).  So for now we are very happy with our choice to live here and we hope that we can stay here as long as possible.  THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to hop over here and read about journey to stay in the city, live small and get outside!     I’ll try and answer any questions I read in the apartment therapy comments on the blog too.
