Alaina Kaczmarski’s office (in one of her old apartments) is till one of my favorite inspirations. See another one of my favorite of Alaina’s many apartments here.

Hello friends! It’s been such a busy week, but I wanted to quickly check in and share something fun… I got a new computer! I haven’t updated in awhile, especially considering my MacBook Pro is such a fantastic computer, but lately I’ve been wanting something different.

I went with a beautiful 21.5″ iMac. I’ve thought long and hard about transitioning to a desktop, but I honestly couldn’t be happier with my decision. Although I didn’t spring for the 27″, I’m blown away by the difference in screen size alone. Plus it’s so elegant on my tabletop (still working out desk issues, but I’ll share soon in a future Happy Home post) and takes up such little space with it’s tiny, wireless keyboard and mouse. It’s all screen, and I love it.

I’m a total nerd for Mac products, and since getting the iPad Mini for Christmas I have been super aware of how infrequently I actually take my laptop anywhere to work other than around my apartment. Plus, I feel way more productive and focused when I put on some great music, make some tea, and sit down in front of the computer rather than sitting with it in my lap in front of the TV.

I can’t wait to dive into using it more, especially when it comes to putting together this blog. It’s a wonderful thing to edit photos on a big screen.



My recent computer decision has me wondering what’s popular with each of you, and how you might be viewing blogs like this one, so if you would, please share your answers to the following:

1. Do you use a laptop or a desktop computer?

2. What do you love about the style of computer you have?

3. What annoys you about it (if anything)?

More Happy Home and giveaway posts coming up soon!
