When I say "moved in", I mean that all of our stuff has been transferred from one apartment to the other. I don't mean that everything is unpacked and neatly organized, and I don't mean that everything is perfectly decorated yet... In fact, it won't ever be perfect. It will be our imperfectly beautiful home. We are already feeling so good about it. We love the space. Even though it has definitely been demanding all of our hours and efforts for the past few days, cleaning and organizing and putting things in place has only made us love it more.
So while I don't have much to share just yet, I do have a few fun pics to share today.
We had lots of helping hands, and everything went smoothly (other than thinking we had to call off the moving truck due to complications with the rental company. My parents were the ones who faced that stress and also saved the day).
We are so thankful for everyone who gave their time and energy, and for my sweet grandmas, who treated us all to pizza!
I spent the evening of moving day unpacking the kitchen. If you know me, you know that I'm not at home until the kitchen is in order. You'd think I'd be concerned about getting the clothes put away and the bed set up. Nope. The clothes waited until the day after moving. But hey, the crockpot and toaster were in place within the first hour! :-D
This cubby is loaded with tea, coffee, latte mix, cocoa mix, and chai mix. And if none of that's appealing, can I offer you a lemonade? Water? Anything? ;-)
What can I say? I love organization.
We've been getting things done. Scrubbing walls, trim, walls, trim, and doors. Because everything is white, which is lovely when clean. Thats why I've gone through 10+ Mr. Clean magic erasers so far. *thumbs up*
This is so fun! Can't wait to show you some more progress later.
