We moved!

A whole half mile from our previous place.

And yet somehow, it seemed to be a longer, more painful move. We did several loads ourselves before and after the moving company moved our furniture, and it took Friday, Saturday AND Sunday. Whew. (We purposefully planned to go back and clean the old place on Election Night. Not enough of a distraction…)

The new place is a fancy new building, opened in 2012, with much more square footage. It’s a two-bedroom, two-bath, with a walk-in closet and a *balcony* plus its shockingly quiet.

Moving Night Dinner – pizza and champagne!

The office is still a chaotic mess (weep, no sewing for weeks still!!!), but the rest of the place is fairly well set.

Yep, office chaos....

Check out the walk-in closet!

I can see all my things at once, for the first time ever!

How cool is this? All my reflective things reflecting in the walk-in closet. <3 <3 <3

The view from our new balcony. Not many windows but this makes up for it!

The apartment building has a bike storage room and lots of staples around the building. The bike storage room will of course be the topic of a blog post soon, I’m sure – once I’ve had some time to properly utilize it. bikes

bike-storage-roomI did order a giant Abus Bordo lock, for the times I want to leave the bike outside. I confess that I’m a bit sad about leaving the bike outside, and won’t do it often, but getting in and out of the bike storage room in the basement of the building isn’t that ideal.

I've wanted one of these for a while, so this was a good excuse to fork out a ton of money for it.

We are very happy with our new apartment and can’t wait to get the office set up so we can get back to our hobbies. I have so much sewing to do, and every weekend we are dealing with the apartment is a garment that doesn’t get made. Very sad. But the new place is soooo worth it! bikes-by-the-door
