Hello – and sorry for the lack of posting last week. As you may have guessed, we were moving to our new home in Evanston, Illinois (just north of Chicago). It’s beautiful here, and the weather couldn’t be nicer. A lovely welcome!
I thought I’d share a few pictures from our moving adventure. Overall, everything ran smoothly with just a couple bumps (mostly related to our fur baby, Kitty)…All in all, a very good move. Here is our 3 part journey.
Before the move…
All of our belongings in a 20’ truck and one loyal Pathfinder
During the move…(p.s. all these images are via instagram – love it!)
6:00 a.m. Departure – Sunrise Day 2; somewhere near Blytheville, AR
Kitty watching from the passenger seat (aka, my lap)
Yes - we can see the skyline!
Bikers on Lakeshore Drive – so pretty. This is when we got really excited!
After the move… and Our new place.
We’ve been setting up our new living space over the last few days. It’s funny because our old apartment was brand new, had high ceilings and lots of natural light. It also had a smallish living/kitchen area, huge closets and 2 large bathrooms. Our new place is older (est. 1955,) has lower ceilings, minimal light, a large living area, one tiny bathroom, and LOTS of character. I love it!
Old Place – light/bright and airy (points for spotting Kitty)
New Place – Though I’m not done decorating, I wanted to share a few pics of the new place! it’s cozy and warm – can’t wait to light a bunch of candles and cuddle up here during the Fall and Winter!
Living area –> considering this console table for the back wall or to place behind the couch
Thank you for the well wishes and encouragement we received during the trip! Now, come visit us!!
