Happy Mother's Day to all you superwomen! How did you spend your day?
We have a tradition of going for a family brunch- this year we headed over to Fabbrica. It was divine; I highly recommended it for Sunday brunch.
As cousins keep popping out babies, our family is becoming larger and larger. We used to be the ones playing dolls (well, i was the one tearing those dolls apart). I love it; I grew up surrounded by family on the same street, so I guess you could say that I was actually raised by all four of my aunts. So this is an extra special day, because it reminds me of how lucky I am to have such a special family. They are everything to me.
No one takes the place of Anita though-- we've grown to have a relationship that I absolutely cherish. She's my rock and mentor, and I can't wait to be that kind of parent to my kiddos one day. She's the best. We all say this about our mom's, I'm sure. I guess they really are living superheros, huh?!
So, our place has officially been on the market for a couple of weeks now, and boy does it ever interfere with life. I hate feeling I can't truly live in my space, cause it always has to be prepared for someone to see it.
On a side note, we've had a great response, and a few things are on the go. We'll see what happens. Just being patient in the meantime. I hate waiting.
It took awhile for us to get the place ready for the market. First we had to fix a few things that the shitty builder did, then we added a few custom details to make the space unique, like a custom backsplash, and more lighting (something the space was serious lacking). Once all the nitty gritty was complete, it was time to stage. I guess the space should be left simple and not reflect my personal style so much (in other words, the real estate world likes to keep things boring). I "edited" the current decor, so I guess now it's a bit more appealing to the masses. You still get the gist of my style, just toned down a lot.
Anyway, here are some outtakes of the staging process.
I'll be back soon with an update on this crazy process... and hopefully it'll be to tell you that the place is sold. ciao for now :)
