Remember when I shared my new apartment wish list? Well, we’re finally here. T. has officially moved in!
Which means we really did nix the LDR and he’s back in Boston for good….or at least for a year when we hopefully find a new city to love.
My friends keep asking “how is it?” and I think because it was such a drastic change – 1000 miles to literally sitting right next to me – they expect I’m going to say “rough” or “a difficult adjustment.”
However, it’s been wonderful! Having my guy back here is the best. It’s the little things you know, like having someone to start dinner when I’m stuck at work or being able to grocery shop together (food is obviously on my mind).
While it’s been positively great having him back, it is in fact an adjustment. We’re combining all of our things and figuring out what to keep, sell, or give away. I’m not always the best at communicating, so I had to get better at that when he moved to Atlanta, now I have to get better at it in a different way…like being able to say nicely that no, I don’t like that piece of furniture instead of simply saying “ew, it has to go.”
It’s a learning process you guys, for real.
Anyways, the apartment is nowhere near done yet, T. just moved in two weeks ago, with his stuff getting here shortly after. Plus, our work schedules are so demanding that unpacking by the time we get home is a struggle…a real struggle.
Luckily, I was able to move in a few weeks before T. so at least I had the chance to put away my things so that it didn’t look like World War III up in here.
Slowly, but surely, we’re putting together our furniture, placing it where it’s actually going to go in the apartment, so on and so forth. But, as I’m sure you’ve guessed – I cannot wait to get to the decorating and DIY part! We need to get everything put away so that we have space for DIYing – I get it, but I am so darn excited.
Have you found any new home DIY projects? Do share! We’re always on the search for another project.
