Home sweet home


As I am wrapping up my time in my charming, cozy little apartment, I have been feeling very sentimental. So I decided to document my home. Something to show the grandkids… or watch on repeat while I’m living out of my Honda, crying over the reality of living out of a suitcase for MONTHS AND MONTHS ON END.

Therefore, I bring you my very first movie of my very first home of my very first life. Please forgive my shakey hands and lack of computer prowess. And a special thanks to the exquisite Wailin’ Jennys for the soundtrack.

    Annie, that was a precious video. You’re a brave girl to move on and not know what’s coming next. Today I watched Nikki and Erik take off for Lubbock and I’m crying because I’ll miss them so much! Moving on is hard to do.

    Love it. Love the red shoes and purse, self bought roses and the sense of nostalgia. I’m a little homesick for you right now. Remember, change is GOOD. Change is GOOD. Change is GOOD. Now, if I could only believe that myself.

    I like you how you used your blog as a facade for an advertisement.. reeled us in and then HOOKED us at the end. nicely done!

    Great video…you’re great…yadda yadda…can me and Lisa have that green wine bottle holder? :)

    Seriously, though…I love that you did this! I always take pictures of the places I live…you have to have some way to remember it all, right?

    *subsequent conversation I plan on having with Colleen after watching your video*

    J-Hey Colleen, did you see Annie’s Video?
    C-No, not yet, you know I’m bad about reading blogs.
    J-Well, I can tell after watching it, that you and I will get along so well with her.
    C-Yeah, she seems pretty great!
    J-And after seeing how she lives in her apartment, all the organization, style, and creative storage, its right up our alley. Shows a lot about her awesome personality!
    C-I agree. well put, Jannell!

    So basically, I have a newfound appreciation for you and our future friendship. Now all you have to do is drive to Alaska and meet all your wonderful new friends. I drove from anchorage to Portland in 2.5 days. it can be done….
    P.S. I like your video a lot. in case it was vague.

    You are oh so creative and wonderful…with such fabulous taste! I volunteer JJ to help you deliver your goods and wares whenever you need it. :) We may even help you take some off your hands ourselves! :) Yes, we want to be fabulous like Annie! Oh how we’ll miss you when you go…
