Greetings from Maine!
I haven't been blogging as much as I want to since we've been moving and settling into our new little apartment. But I thought that I would post something today since we just made ONE month in Portland! A lot of our friends and family have been asking to see the new apt so...In honor of this first milestone I am sharing an apartment preview! Not all our room are here because not all our room are clean =p Although we've come a long way with getting the place together we still have much to go. So here is a sneak peak.
The walls are bare and the furniture is minimum but I really wanted to take my time with decorating this home to our liking. One lesson we learned from our first place in Queens is that you can't rush it. Cliche I know, but it's sooooo true. It's hard to stop yourself from wanting to buy absolutely everything all at once and have everything set right away but you have to take your time. Trust me!
Our living room!
We kept our furniture for this room because well...if it ain't broke right! Also, this couch is soooo comfy. My mom was kind enough to give us this living room set 7 years ago and we still love it so there's no way we could get rid of it.
Although 99.9% of everything in here we needed to purchase this time around (we HAD to graduate from a full to a queen), there are things we kept from our last place. Like our TV of course and this wonderful jewelry armoire Greg's mom gave me a few years ago. It might not match perfectly but I believe in keeping things that mean something.
I'm pretty sure Bella thinks this her HER new bed...
