One last time...

As I type this, I'm currently sitting in my studio last time.

Even though I successfully moved into my new condo over the weekend, my apartment's lease isn't up until tomorrow. I spent the last several days cleaning and wiping down the unit and moving any remaining items.

Now it's just a plain, empty space. Just like when I got here a year ago. I guess I really did make it my own during that time, with all my plants and things.

Even though I had the terrible dust issue to deal with, I will miss this place. It kept me safe and was somewhere I could come home to after long workdays. And the view was just lovely (though the new place has a lovely view too!).

I'm grateful and thankful to have had it but am looking forward to growing into my new place (I fall in love with it more and more each day).

In honor of my one-year anniversary, here's some pics of my quaint but cozy studio I lived in for the past twelve months!

The main living room space.

I snuck plants into EVERY corner I could.

I sat at this table every day.

Interior of my retro kitchen cabinets (notice the turquoise metal).

 Wonder Woman always watched out for me!

Bathroom shot!

My small little hallway area leading into the main living space.

I'm going to miss the views from my window. A lot.

Did I mention my amazing view?

At least I'll have the memories to look back on.

The great news is my new place is colorful and interesting and better than what I had. Everything happens for a reason.

So...onto bigger and better things!

Wow, wow, wow! When it comes to the view, especially for a first apartment, I'd say you win for all time. Everything was so nice, and I've got major heart eyes for your Wonder Woman stand-up! Love the plants, too. I'm sure the new place is incredible. You'll put your stamp on it for sure.

I especially like the floral tiles beneath the kitchen cabinet. It's nice you could add so many of your own touches as well. It was a good stepping stone to your condo.

The view from my (former) studio apartment was indeed lovely. I got to wake up every morning looking out over the lake.

Although my new place overlooks the lake too.


And that Wondie stand-up helped give me courage and strength on those days when I felt very weak. She was there rooting me on, telling me I could do it!



Thank you, Randy!



Yeah, the tiles were of various herbs. They added a charming, whimsical touch to an otherwise plain space.
