Moving

Hello blogworld, it honestly feels like it's been months since I've posted - but it's all for good reasons, I swear. The last month has been ridiculously busy. I was in Michigan for a week with my father, and then upon returning, I began the hot pursuit for a new apartment.

Yes, that's right, I'm moving! I've decided to take the plunge and try living alone. I found a darling place on the north side of Chicago, and will be living in an adorable studio in Lincoln Square. It has three huge closets, a beautiful little bathroom, a giant stove, a kitchen filled with light, east/west windows, gorgeous hardwood floors, and built-ins!!

It's going to be a bit of an adaptation for me to get used to a new commute to work, and an entirely new routine - but I welcome the challenge. So far, I've discovered that there is a branch of my gym walking distance, a large grocery store nearby, a handful of cute cafes, and plenty of choices for delicious takeout (Thai and Indian food nearby!!).

I signed my lease last week, and have begun the task of moving my belongings from both my old apartment, and my parents house. Electric has been set up, and I'm going to be having Internet installed next week. Once I'm all moved in, I will post more pictures, I promise. But here's what I have now.

More apartment porn. Hi this is my perfect little kitchen. It has built ins.

Can't talk too busy unpacking kitchen things with Jens.
