Cocktail Party

We moved to a new place in October.  Between work and life, and all the holidays…the loft just wasn’t coming together. Unpacking and “nesting” weren’t priorities during this busy time.

One way we forced ourselves to hang some pictures and get rid of some moving boxes was by hosting my family for Christmas dinner. Semi-presentable was good enough for the fam bam! 😉

Hello 2015 (Happy New Year!!!) – we finally put up all of our decor and our home actually feels like a home. Time for a cocktail party with a few close friends! Here are a few pics from the evening.
