It's been three months since I've moved into my new apartment. It has been exhilarating.

This is the first time we've owned our home. And after renting countless apartments in Manhattan (eight to be exact), it has also been a culture shock.

I was terrified of mortgage payments and entering the world of adulthood, but I have to admit that it's been absolutely wonderful.

Investing in my home has felt like a privilege these past few months.

While I haven't been knitting and sewing as much as I'd like, I've been preoccupied with cooking, baking and furnishings. Here's an idea of what I've been doing.

It's taken my pug quite a bit to get used to the stairs. Instead, she'd rather take rest on the sofa.

I now understand the work to be done in one's home is endless. I'm thinking I should turn my attention back to the much more instantly gratifying work of knitting and sewing.

It's amazing the difference between owning and renting, but owning is definitely the best!

You have a beautiful home.
