The Shower Curtain

Do you remember your first apartment?

Think about the decor, the size, the layout.

Did you have a roommate or live alone?

Was the apartment on the first level or higher up?

Remember the excitement you had that lead up to the day you got to MOVE out of your parents house and into your own place?

How are old were you?

How far away did you move? Was it across town or in another state or even out of the country?

Can you see it again?

I watched my daughter pick out a shower curtain for her new apartment this weekend. She walked up and down the aisle at Target looking at the options and avoiding one side as they were more than a shower curtain should be allowed to be.

I watched her take pictures of the ones she liked and sent them to her roommate aka the boyfriend. She asked for my input and I suggested maybe not getting something too “girly” otherwise her choices were all pretty awesome. We continued the journey through Target (which is dangerous) while we waited for the boyfriend to confirm his opinion.

It was a very surreal moment for this mama. Schools are starting in the surrounding districts this week which is CRAZY, however, my amazing hubby and I are breathing a sigh of relief that that stage is now over for us and the next chapter has begun. While college kids are heading out the door to begin their next chapter, our baby girl decided she wants to go conquer the world a little bit and discover who she is.

Love and hugs!


  1. Great choice! Love that curtain. The first apartment I had was with a roommate in college. It ended up being a bad situation, and I moved out to a place by myself. After that, no more roommates for me until I got married 🙂 Hope your daughter enjoys her new apartment!

  2. that shower curtain is perfection! I love it so much 🙂

    Awww, yes. I remember. it seems like a lifetime ago, but reading this, and remembering that excitement–it’s just the greatest feeling in the world. what a proud momma moment! also i am no longer allowed to wander the aisles of target by myself, LOL.
