Today was cold and rainy, which meant a cozy afternoon with a cup of tea and a book spent inside my apartment. I also spent a little time after church picking up and catching up on some chores. One of the chores that I was actually really excited for was hanging up my Valentine’s Day gift from Christopher. This year, he gave me framed pictures of the hills around our hometown. I love the colors, the fact that he took them, the frames that he chose, and that they’re a little slice of home at my apartment in school! So sweet of him! Thanks, honey!
Since I don’t have professional picture-hanging equipment, I used a couple pieces of paper to see how I wanted the spacing and where I wanted to hang them. You can check out this process in the picture below! I used the same piece of paper to make sure that they were spaced pretty evenly across the wall. It worked pretty well! (Life of a broke college student…). I did end up hanging them with real nails because they were a little heavy and I didn’t think that the command hooks that I had would really support them. In case anyone is curious, the frames are from Aaron Brothers and they’re either the Steinbeck Thin or the San Marino models.
And here’s the finished product! (selfieee) I love, love, love them so much and am so happy to have this reminder of my beautiful home state and all of the fun adventures that Chris and I have had together!
Thanks for stopping by, y’all! I’m off to FaceTime my mom and work on some graphic design projects [and probably watch some How I Met Your Mother]! Stay tuned for my next post later this week about goal-setting and how I work to achieve my dreams!
love & light xx
