As many of you have probably inferred due to my latest instagram posts- Mike and I finally found an apartment in DC! We went with a place on the 4th floor of a row house (read: many stairs, quads are gonna be swoll) in Columbia Heights. We absolutely l-o-v-e it here so far. The neighbors are friendly, the parking isn’t too difficult, we’re only 4 blocks from the metro (2 from a city bike location!) and there are some awesome restaurants and bars right around the corner. What’s not to love?
Our apartment is still… a work in progress. We got rid of a lot of furniture before we left for Brussels so that we didn’t have to rent out a giant storage space (we only rented a mildly giant storage space instead) and then when the movers were trying to get our couch upstairs on move-in day they gently let us know that was-a-not-a-happenin. Farewell, craigslist couch I found for $150 about 5 years ago, you will be missed. I hope to make some actual progress and lessen the home depot box jungle that our place is emulating, it’s kinda cute but really it’s not cute. So for the time being Mike and I will be either unpacking and putting together new furniture, or exploring our new neighborhood and all the wonders it has to offer.
on sunday we took a little break from unpacking and biked down to the washington monument to admire the cherry blossoms with friends
i tried to coordinate my dress to fit in with the beautiful cherry blossoms- it kind of works, right?
At some point in the not-too-distant future I hope to show you the inside of our new place, once it doesn’t look like the beginnings of a hoarder’s house, that is. By the way, has anyone seen my cat? Pray for us.
