What is it about paper? The feeling of holding the perfect-sized notebook, turning its pages and finally, tentatively putting pen to paper. Or cracking the spine of a new book - a rite of passage for me, a gesture that means I've committed fully to the story, and am hooked. Nowhere is this love more apparent that in the blogosphere, which is perhaps paper's greatest victory.
Because even among a community who can express profound beauty without it, paper is revered. Oh So Beautiful Paper expresses our paper-worshipping beautifully. Nole has exquisite taste and a serene style. Her blog has led me to many impulse purchases, but I don't hold it against her. This is where Nole blogs from and what she has to say about it... I love this warmly lit corner!
I do most of my blogging from home in the evening. Since my husband and I don't have a "home office" area in our little one-bedroom apartment, I'll usually sit in a comfy chair in the living room while my husband sits on the couch. One of the nice things about blogging from our living room is that we're surrounded by some of our favorite keepsakes, like a Masai wedding necklace that I brought back from a trip to Kenya a couple of years ago, textiles and pillowcases from our honeymoon in Peru last August, and a bunch of other things that you can't see from this angle. We've been in our apartment for a little over 3 years, and one of the best features of the apartment are the super-high ceilings (I think about 10 ft), which make our small apartment feel much more spacious.
