Moving on Up

I has been a little over two months since my big move (and since I last posted…oops!) and to say that I am thoroughly inspired and in love with my new neighborhood would be an understatement.  It is such a relief to be in a neighborhood where people actually walk around and where I see a diverse set of people.  In my old ‘hood, it was more car and bus oriented so it always felt weird to walk anywhere and in some instances, the sidewalk would just abruptly stop and you would be forced to trudge through foliage to get to your destination.  Now I am surrounded by urban gardens, sidewalk cafes, boutiques, and restaurants galore. The apartment complex across the street from me has a fountain in their courtyard, so anytime the weather is nice, I can open my windows and zen out to the sound of the water. On Friday and Saturday nights, I do have to deal with all of the drunken people and loud motorcycles en route to the local bars, but I don’t mind since pros of the apartment far outweigh the cons. My favorite thing about the apartment is that I have a great view of the city skyline from my bedroom window, and it looks even better at night when the buildings are illuminated in various colors. I will do a series on apartment hunting, living with a roommate, decorating, and how to put together Ikea furniture without losing your mind (you are going to love that one).
P.S. Check out the new blog header! It was designed by MerelyBlogDesign. If you are in need of design services for your blog or website, definitely get in contact with her. I have been admiring her work for a while now and I am excited that I got to work with her.
