My New Apartment

Thanks so much for all of the supportive comments you have been leaving everyone :) I am doing really well, and it means a lot to me that you're sticking around! People around me are consistently telling me how happy I seem, and calmer, as if a weight I hadn't known was there has been lifted. Maybe so.
Here I'm sharing some photos of my new apartment, which I'm just in love with. Some awesome friends helped me move in last weekend, and I'm settling in and making it my own. It is so much fun to have my own place! And I love the details and all of the light that comes in.

Living room with fireplace

The fireplace "marble" is actually a painted faux finish. I originally intended to immediately paint over it, but everyone who visits seems to like it, so perhaps it may stay.

Looking back into the rest of the apartment.

Center room

Large walk-in closet in the center room. This apartment has never ending storage- a definite must! Just inside the closet door there is another wood door... my closet has a closet inside.


I'm a bit worried about the open cabinets, because I don't have a lot of nice looking kitchen things.

That is one fine brown stove.


Small but it works with my set!


So, it's a cute place.


  1. I love that is has character {brown stove and all}
    I'm so glad to hear your doing so well. Funny how sometimes we don't realize what stresses are on our shoulders until they are gone. Can't wait to see how you make the place your own. Hang in there Chickie :)
