The Start of Something

Gavin had a photo shoot on Thursday with my coworker, Trevor. They went for drinks afterward so I met up with them after work, as did Trevor’s girlfriend. It was really fun. It also made me miss Brooklyn.

On Friday night, Janice came over to watch Sex and the City. Gavin was out at a shoot but he eventually showed up in time to say hi before Janice left.


I think there should be a drumroll for what comes next. Ready? I went running! Finally. (The last time I ran was in January.) It was two miles and I took it easy (in terms of speed). I also met up with Elisa and we went for a walk around the park. On the way, we stopped for some super delicious coffee on the east side.


For dinner, Gavin made pizza. After that I worked in the magazine- for pretty much the entire night. I got a lot some and I’m feeling good about it.


Then on Sunday, I went to Barnes & Noble to check out some magazines for inspiration. I also looked at a bunch of decorating books while I was there. Of course.


Gavin had picked up some new prints of his and frames we chose so I hung them on the wall above the TV furniture which I rearranged that morning.


I’m really happy with it and Gavin’s photos look amazing. Back to the magazine. I worked on it again on Sunday night for several hours. Definitely making progress. Definitely a lot more to go.

Designing the Office: Part II

We decided to build the shelves on Saturday. I spent the morning and part of the afternoon organizing Gavin’s photography stuff into boxes.


After calling both of our dads for “shelf installation” advice (who basically said the same exact thing), we were ready to go. I got the equipment ready from our tool bag.


I only got one bracket in before Gavin announced that it was probably too late in the day to do this. So we left it for the next day. Since we slept in, and I had to go into work in Sunday, the shelves had to wait until Monday.


On Monday night, Gavin was really tired from walking around all day running errands (this included mailing a huge print of one of his photographs to a client.)

So I put up the shelves, one by one, measuring along the way, and listening to lots of Broadway music. They look really good. Now we just have to build the desks (from our second Ikea trip) and the office should be good.
