I am married, I know I shouldn't, but I just can't help these feelings I have...for IKEA.
I know it's mostly plastic and pressboard and cheap MDF, and I know it can't last forever but, would it really be so bad to indulge in a little fling, I think it would be fun while it lasted. I just can't take my eyes of those little roomlets with every square inch of space maximized. Every little thing in a row. The allure of the clean lines and simplicity, how can a woman resist. The efficiency just gets me. And that no frills euro style makes my heart pitter patter. I get giddy, butterflies in my stomach when I unload those boxes and break out the allen wrenches and those step by step instruction booklets with the universal demo man and 30 minutes later am admiring a hemnes dresser.
My husband indulges me, as I snuggle under my fluffy down comforter and all starry-eyed peruse the pages of the 2009 catalog. Longing for a new set of canisters for the 5 types of chocolate chips I cook with regularly, or as I pine for some new light fixture or lamp, (I have a thing for light) or daydream about adding more doors to my bookcases to hide the books and the clutter. I just can't stay away, I finding myself constantly thinking of when I'll see it again.
So dear Ikea will you be my valentine this year? XO smart mama
