a new space

You guys, I gotta tell ya what's put me in the BEST mood for a monday (aside from having five minutes ago just eaten the most delicious turkish delight at my favourite cafe) - so I totally learned how to swing dance last night! I joined my housemate at Swing It's free sunday evening Swing 'n' Soul at the Belgian Beer Cafe and it. was. amazing. Walking in to a room full of smiling and snappily dressed people dancing like crazy and all clearly having just the best time doing so was too rad to be real. The atmosphere was so inviting and full of joy - exactly how dancing the night away should be. I think I was hooked within the first five minutes.

A kind chap showed me a few basic steps and I joined in as best I could (which was AWESOME), but I'm going to hop along to my first official class on wednesday and I am SO excited.

Have you swing danced? If not, please do, seriously. I can't even tell you how great it'll make you feel.

Anyway! I snapped a few photos this arvo - couldn't resist - of my new digs! I gotta say, one of my favourite things about moving house has been decorating a new room from scratch. SO fun. This new little space is now so ~me~ it's ridiculous. Oh boy, I can't wait to do the same thing to a whole house one day.
