it’s official: we have an apartment! I’m half excited and half still in shock over the cost of rent in this city (it’s bananas, y’all!). the rent is eye-watering, but we’ll be right in the middle of the city, blocks away from fenway and the famous citgo sign above. I’m incredibly grateful to my in-laws for letting us stay with them while we were apartment hunting. our move-in date is next friday.
since we drove out to boston with only the things we could carry in bess, our buick century, we had next to nothing in terms of furniture/household items. I’ve been shopping for the apartment over the past couple of days, being intentional in buying only items that we need AND love. it’s got to work for us on all levels – function, style, quality, and price. if something’s not quite right, it doesn’t come home with me. I’d love to share some of the items that have made the cut in upcoming posts. it’s been several years since we’ve had our own place, so I’ve definitely been stockpiling ideas on how to decorate our new home!
here’s a before photo in the meantime:it’s small and I’m not digging the wall-to-wall carpeting, but it’s ours and we’re together. plus, I did say I wanted a white kitchen… ;).
