Farewell Apartment.

May 21, 2010

Dear Apartment,

It’s time to say goodbye. You served us well through our first year of marriage & will always be remembered as our first home together. We loved the lofted bedroom, even though it was just a teensy bit weird when people slept over on our couch (for them & for us). We loved that you felt so big, even though you were only 900 SF. We loved that we got to fill you with all our fun registry items & personalize you with all sorts of handmade decorations… and our very favorite Anthropologie home decor. (Well, maybe I loved that part more than him.)

We loved that you were located in the perfect spot — right on the border of indie town, ghetto town, ritzy town, & Asia town. And we loved that we could walk to Vons, Trader Joe’s, Michael’s, and Target from where you were. Thanks for treating us so nice this year — we will miss you very much. (Except for the spiders… we won’t miss the spiders at all.)

You will always hold a special place in our hearts. Farewell, dear apartment.

    i remember having to leave my first apt. it was very bittersweet. no mater how much better (or worse) your next place will be…that first place will always be remembered, due to the fact that you want to do everything to make it nice.

    goodluck with a new place!

    Big fan of those butterflies. I might just have to do something like that too for my room.
