We’re here. We’re in.
This past Saturday some friends and family came over to help us move our furniture over to the apartment. Three minivans and an 18-foot flatbed trailer made quick work of our belongings, and two and a half hours after started, we were officially moved in. A great big thank you to John and Sarah, John and Sue, Mark and Phyllis, Daryl, and Lincoln. The process was so much easier, and a lot more fun because of all of you!
The rest of our weekend involved organizing and setting up our new home: hanging towel bars, setting up electronics, doing loads of laundry, putting away dishes. We are still going back and forth to the house once a day, until our mail is moved over and we get the rest of our clothes/kitchen supplies/miscellaneous extras.
For now, it is just nice to be here. To be able to finally take a breath and sit down on our couch and enjoy the 3 months of work that have gotten us to this point. Not that we’re done by any means. Kitchen cabinets will be installed next month, as well as some new furniture. The stairs will be painted this week, and some paneling will go up in the entrance hallway. But we love being downtown, and are excited to be where we are at this moment. In our new home.
