Yesterday was a whirlwind of a day (thus, no blog post). We had a photographer and a reporter from a magazine come by our apartment to talk to us and take photos for a story they're doing on loft style living spaces. That means we spent all morning cleaning, rearranging and just generally sprucing things up. Now the place is so clean I don't even want to cook in the kitchen! We ended up posing in some of the photos that were taken so perhaps I'll post them here when the issue comes out.

I wasn't sure what I was going to wear but Francesca and I decided to do a little temporary swap to get us out of our winter wardrobe blues. When I opened the box I couldn't believe she'd sent the most gorgeous blouse. So of course, it's all I want to wear right now. It's so delicate I really didn't want to wear it out of the house so it was the perfect little thing to wear for the interview and photos. I just ran outside quickly (in the cold!) to snap these photos for the blog.
