H is for Home

Elysa over at GenPink, a blog about being a twenty something career-minded girl of the world working to balance work/family while still having a great time with fashion, chasing boys, and all the latest gadgets, asked me to write a guest post today. The topic? I wrote about the first time I stepped foot into my own apartment and how I got started as a single woman long before marriage and my thirties kicked in. It’s rather revealing, but it felt good to write about my horrible first apartment experience and the depression I dealt with back at the age of twenty-two and how decorating and a little DIY inspired change.

Read it here. Thank you again Elysa for including me today over at GenPink!

    Holly, I love what you wrote over on elysa’s blog. What an inspirational story. I can almost feel your happiness at taking charge and changing the homely to homey. I couldn’t agree more that what you put into your home comforts you, inspires you and invigorates you. Thank you for sharing.

    What a story! Thanks for sharing. (And I can relate to the roach fear – they took over my first apartment too. Ick City.)

    Great article!! Thanks for sharing and being real! I watched an interview with a comedian the other day and he said his goal this year was to be more real. I thought that was a great goal and have added it to my list. Thanks for the further inspiration!
