Friday Slice

I'm home in Minnesota, and I just woke up from a nap (I use the term "woke up" very loosely, because I'm a terrible napper, and I never truly fell asleep). I wanted to share a couple of photos I took of my lovely bedroom last night (with Instagram, naturally). This is the bedroom I grew up sleeping in, and I realized last night that it's my safe place. I feel so at peace here, thinking about all of the different phases of my life that these walls have seen.

I'll be taking some more pictures of my room and home with real camera, using my new lens that finally came in the mail a few days ago, so I'll eventually share those with you too. I want to capture the essence of this room just the way it is...I know my parents won't be living in this house forever, and I want to be able to remember it always. 

My mom threw together a rather spontaneous family get together for tonight, so all of my aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents will soon be spilling through the door. Family tonight, friends and wedding celebrations tomorrow. I love home. 

Here are some Instagram photos from this past week (my username is chickpokipsie):


Have a wonderful weekend!
