Since returning from our road trip this summer, posting has been sporadic. Okay, non-existent is probably a more accurate term, and part of me has felt badly about this. But, if I’m being perfectly honest I’ve also just been way too busy to really put forth the effort.
Going back to work, taking graduate school classes, taking care of Maisie, planning for the wedding, and moving (more on that later) have made this fall one thing: CRAZY. I haven’t exercised in weeks. My car up until a day or two ago looked like the town dump and our apartment, despite a weekly effort to clean it, never actually felt clean. Thankfully, I’ve managed to keep my job, turn in all of my graduate school work and Maisie continues to grow (4.5 mths, 45 lbs!). So, I’ve accomplished something.
That being said, the past week or so has brought with it a sense of calm that I haven’t felt since August, and I’m ever so thankful. Slash keeping my fingers crossed it lasts. A large part of this is due to the fact that Tyler and I have finally found a new place to call home. Let’s face it people. As fun as apartment-hunting can be, it’s also stressful.
Our new place is very different than our current home. It’s the first floor of a big Victorian home, and reads “old and charming” as opposed to “young and hip” like our loft. Nonetheless, we’re psyched. It’s larger. It’s closer to work, and it’s on the first floor, making it WAY easier to deal with Maisie. It also means lots of decorating to be done! =)
For the moment, we don’t have pictures to share, but the wheels have definitely been spinning, and I’m excited to share my thoughts/plans for our future space. Stay tuned!
