The new place

Morning friends!

We’re slowly but surely getting settled into our new abode, and anxiously waiting to officially close on our old house. It’s a time of joy, sadness, stress, excitement, and every¬†other emotion in the book. As soon as we sign the papers, I’ll give you all the details of selling our house. But while we wait for that, I wanted to give you a quick peek into our new 700 square foot apartment in NW Portland. It’s a one bedroom place in an old 1920′s house. We felt most at “home” here, for obvious reasons. We’ll also be able to walk to work, and we have coffee shops, parks, and restaurants just blocks away. I think we’re going to like city living:).

We have one large dining/living room…

One small bedroom…

And a sweet little nook off the kitchen, which will be my office…

I’ll show you pics of the bathroom and kitchen soon too. They’ve both been recently remodeled and will be super functional for Kyle and me.

Happy fourth of July week, all!

    So cute! So is the move to an apartment a temporary move or do you plan on staying a while?

    I LOVE that woodstove and mantle with the lights over it! I’m living vicariouly through your Portland experiences while I suffer through Phoenix heat – though I do enjoy the urban lifestyle I’ve found downtown. Best of luck with the old house – I can’t wait to hear more about the new apartment!

    It’s got a lot of charm. Change is always such a mix of emotions. We had trouble leaving our apartment even though we were headed to a beautiful new home that we were going to own! Memories tie you to a place. But then you get to make the new memories :)

    Are you in Westover? My secret dream is to get married and buy a house in Westover to have the perfect PDX grown up life. I am aware that it is unlikely that this will happen for me, but a girl can dream!! Haha

    If we end up moving to PDX (possibility in the next 2 years) we’ll probably end up in a one bedroom apartment too. I keep trying to remind myself that apartment living can be good – less stuff, less cleaning, less overwhelming options. Looks like you guys ended up with a floor plan that will work out really nicely. Can’t wait to see what you do with it.
