Baby steps...

 Haven't seen our new space on 48th street yet?  I snuck this picture earlier.  It's a quiet day here before we take a mini break for the Thanksgiving holiday.  That's Steve silhouetted against the computer screen, hard at work retouching a pink sapphire ring.

And here we have our new shelves that just came in last week!  We put them together yesterday and found a new home for a bunch of previously displaced items.  (The move and subsequent busy schedule had prevented us from totally settling in at the start.)  Pretty boring, I know, but the shelves really do make all the difference.  Our space feels that much more organized, and now we know just where our paper towels, envelopes, and espresso capsules are located.  Crucial stuff.

We'll be making some big strides towards personalizing our space in the coming months.  There is further excitement in the realm of shelving units, as well as consideration for a kitchen space, hanging artwork for our expansive white walls, and perhaps some plants to soak up the indirect sunlight that likes to hazily make its way through our large windows.

As mundane as shelving units are, you have to admit that there is something refreshing about starting over in a new space.  We've essentially got a blank canvas on our hands, and now we get to mold it into something we've envisioned for quite a while.  Yeah, the individual steps can seem pretty lame, but ultimately we imagine that the holistic manifestation of all these baby steps will be pretty grand.
