I enjoy simple things: solitude, cheap sheet cake, and sunlight. I also believe that white is, in fact, a color. Bring me fresh flowers and we can be friends.

Magic Carpet Ride

There once was a time where I had my fill of magic carpet rides; it was called Senior Week and it took place in the Outer Banks directly following graduation (long story).  Since then, I hadn't given the textile much thought until I realized that my constant furniture shuffle was starting to beat up my new floors.

Picking out an area rug has turned out to be a much more difficult task than anticipated - mainly because there are A MILLION ugly rugs out there. I am pretty sure I have narrowed down the options to something in the grey family (or maybe a red?) in a geometric, repeating pattern.

My final complaint: MAN, rugs are pricey, even at wal-mart. Who knew??
