Farewell to Uptown

After two moving van trips, priming all of our walls, selling our furniture on Craig’s list (since it sadly would not fit through the door of our new home), and many (many) car trips later, we are now officially moved out of our old apartment, and into (but not yet unpacked) our new home.  We finished at a solid 3:30 am, and I hope that everything looks ok since we were doing most our painting in the dark...

Leaving was bitter sweet (mostly sweet), and took way longer than it should have to move everything out.  Although we are happy to have moved, we have a lot of really great memories there as newlyweds.

Top 5 favorite memories at our first apartment
1) Our first two years of marriage and all of the fun and excitement of setting up a “real person” home
2) Our first, massively large, Christmas tree
3) Hosting a crawfish boil for the Florida State vs. Oklahoma game
4) Hosting family Thanksgiving 
5) Decorating for every season (especially fall)

Top 5 things I am looking forward to in our new home
1) Being within walking distance to all things Ann Arbor
2) Closer to work for me (again, location, location, location)
3) Being part of a beautiful neighborhood with huge, old trees on our street 
4) Never living in an apartment again
5) Having friends over to host fun summer barbecues in the yard
