{Homemaking Journal} Meet Our First LA Home!

Here it is! The grand tour of our new little home. We’re mostly settled in. As you can see, we have a few boxes left. My kitchen will probably need a little rearranging still as well, but it’s all quite livable. It feels surprisingly spacious for a one-bedroom. Upon moving we found we had room for a small desk for Andrew, and the IKEA bookcase you see in the living room. I’m looking forward to filling the empty shelves.

As we expected, the neighborhood is nothing to write home about. (But hey look, here I am doing just that!) However, we feel safe in our apartment and walking to our car, which is all we decided is necessary. The enclosed courtyard area and large pool are a nice bonus and the best part is–we’re only one mile from the seminary and church campus! I can’t imagine how many hours collectively we’re going to save not sitting in traffic to get there, not to mention gas money.

As the days keep rolling along I’ll write more about my new community laundry routine, grocery shopping in LA, etc. It’s all quite fresh and challenging!



I have a beautiful quilt, but it’s just too hot. Maybe wintertime? I’m sleeping with just a sheet, and Andrew sometimes snags the green blanket if he’s feeling a little chilly.


I love this little sink area and how it’s separate from the rest of the bathroom, which is to the right.

I’m so excited about this bright, cheery little kitchen! Since it opens to the rest of the living area, it doesn’t feel tight or stuffy. We were both so thrilled to be blessed with another open-layout home like this.

There you have it! I hope you feel like you just popped in for a coffee date. Oh dear, there I go making myself sad again… =)
