Moved In!

Hey all! The move happened on Wednesday and it was super fast and smooth (I 100% recommend EMS Movers in Chicago). It's tough trying to get everything unpacked since it's a small place, but we're making progress. I took some time off work and am back today and it's so hard because I just want to be at the new place right now!

Yes that is a dresser in the living room. We, well... mostly I, have a lot of stuff. We'll have a storage unit eventually, but they're re-doing the basement so we have to wait till it's done. I love that huge window!

My new roommate Cleo. She is Scott's cat and I was a bit worried she wouldn't like me but last night she followed me around the apartment and cuddled with me in bed. So going well! Ignore those curtains in the bedroom, those were some just to have up, but we're getting less um, abrasively colorful ones soon.

Took this while taking a packing break yesterday. I love the light in the new place. At my last apartment my bedroom window didn't get much light since there was another building right next to ours. This is by far the nicest place I've lived since I've been on my own. I am so in love with this place and so happy we found it!

Have a great weekend! There will be more pictures as we get settled.

Packing is not fun. Especially when you have a lot of stuff.

So May is quite the busy month for me. We were looking for an apartment June 1st and ended up getting a place May 15th. Now I have to get lots done sooner than I thought! Booking movers, having a yard sale (moving in to a smaller place), going out of town for a wedding, finding a sublet for my current place....whew. I am making good progress on packing though so that's helping the stress levels! I am hoping the weather holds out Sunday and we have a great yard sale. It will be nice to get in to our new place soon though, I can't wait to leave roommate life behind and live with my boyfriend. Next week is our 3 year anniversary too! Kind of funny to say that since we did have a few break ups but we don't count those since we were in close touch the whole time we were broken up anyways. 

This got real personal, huh? Well, I do enjoy reading blogs that talk about creative endeavors as well as personal lives so that's what I want to write about as well. 

Wish me luck with the move! I will be packing up my studio soon so I won't be working on any new work till I'm settled, BUT I will have some new work on display at Cole's Bar in Chicago located at 2338 N. Milwaukee starting Sunday May 18th.
