DIY Terrariums

One of the first things I noticed after moving downtown almost two and a half years ago is that there's some sort of special bond, a unique connection that downtown residents share. We go against what others say about "living in such a dangerous neighborhood", or "awful traffic and difficult parking" and somehow learn to almost love those things.
It's like moving downtown is an instant friendship builder, you have something in common - a love for the city, the bustling streets, the walkability, and all those small things that only residents could know.

Sunday Mornings

Sunday mornings are the best. On a typical day our neighborhood is bustling with street vendors, cars, and visitors before 10am, but things start a little slower on Sundays, leaving room to sleep in and enjoy the still peacefulness that only downtown residents know.
I awoke a bit early this morning and headed to the market to pick up a few things for brunch before the morning rush. On the menu? Bacon wrapped eggs with potatoes, and gluten free pancakes with the freshest and sweetest of strawberries.

TRUNK - What's it about?

Hi there!

Thanks for stopping by! I'm Chloé, a twenty-something girl living in her dream downtown loft with a mister and a dog named Moses. I'm a DIY junkie, an out of practice seamstress, a mostly good cook,  and I like to dabble in photography and writing.

This is Trunk blog, where I plan to share some of the above mentioned items that take up my time. Please stay for a minute, look around, and let me know your thoughts!

P.S. Wondering where the name trunk comes from? Simple answer: my new found obsession with elephants and their super long noses. ;)
