Starting out

So, I’ve been here a full week, and I’m loving it.  It gets a little lonely during the day while Jay is at work, but the projects are never ending so I’m always busy.  I really want to share pictures of our new house (we’re both in heaven, we live in 3x the space as our apartment!) but I want everything to be done first.

This past weekend my Mom & brother were up here for a family party, Jay and I went to a concert, and we hung out with family at the pool.  We can’t wait until the place is all done and I am working again so that we can get in the full flow of life up here.  In the meantime, I’m enjoying getting to be with Rondo all day and putting together furniture…I am the master of all tools now.

Here are just a few pictures from lately…

New York I Love You

266

I can’t believe that tomorrow night I will get on a train, leave my job, family, the city, and go start our new life in Mass.  I’m beyond excited and wildly nervous all at the same time.  So many huge changes are ahead of us…

The past couple weeks I have been trying to appreciate New York as much as I possibly can.  Walking to work instead of taking the subway, looking up at buildings, and pretending to be a tourist everywhere I go. New York, thank you for everything you have given me…my first real job, where, hey, I ended up meeting my future husband, my first apartment, meeting some of my best friends, the crazy weekends and weeknights out way too late…if I named everything I love we would be here for a month.  NY, I will miss you, but it’s time to go…

lately

Well, we moved, we had a long weekend together in our new house, and now I’m back in NYC!  Ay!  I am working at my job for a couple more weeks down in the city and will permanently move up to be with Jay next Tuesday.   I can’t wait to be there and get going on our house.  We have done so much work already, but there are a still million things to do.

Here are some pictures from life lately…

Well, we moved…sort of!  There are a million things to do, and I am in the city still, but all of our belongings are in our amazing new house!  I can’t wait to organize and decorate and make it our home!  Both Mom’s and Dad’s… we couldn’t have done it without you.  And to all of our friends, we love you guys so much, especially for waking up on Saturday and helping instead of sleeping in.  Here are some pictures from our last date in Williamsburg at Motorino, and Rondo being Rondo.
