I've done quite a few apartment tours by now, so you all know how little space we have here. We don't like our little apartment all that much, but we feel safe here and we don't know where we'll be next year, so it seems silly to move now. Regardless, there are still a few things I would quickly change about our space, mainly the lack of a washing machine inside our apartment, and the fact that we have no outside space that is completely our own. We have a little porch outside our front door, but there isn't room for much there.
We aren't ones to wallow in these first world problems though, and I always like to see the positives of a situation. Our apartment is still home to us, and I will do whatever it takes to make it feel like a home. For us, that means planting our summer garden, however small it may be.
I love using fresh herbs in my cooking, which is why we've planted some of our favorites for the summer. We've planted basil and rosemary for the past three summers, but this year we added sage, thyme, mint, and lavender to the mix. I am already starting to think of all the recipes (and cocktails) we can use them in!
