And now, a pictorial overview of what we’ve been up to.

Well, first we were up to this… Before we even moved our stuff in, Ryan and Brodie were already tearing the carpet up in our upstairs hallway.

Which led to this. Ahhhh…. much improved over the mint green shag that had been there.

And then we got into a little of this… that’s wallpaper being taken down, if you can’t tell.

And, of course, we couldn’t stop there. We had to do a little of this…

Thank god we got a new roof just in time for the wind storm…

But, we’re finally at the point where we can do a little of this…

It’s been one heck-of-a month, and we are immensely enjoying our new house—the good, the bad, and the ugly! I didn’t even get a picture of the trash pile that was in our driveway for a month and the industrial-sized dumpster that followed. Or, the deer munching and pooping in our backyard. Or, the spectacular fireworks from McIntire Park that we watch from lawn chairs in our front yard. Looking forward to sharing our updates along the way!

In eight short days, Ryan and I will be leaving our beloved apartment. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very excited for the new house, but I will miss this apartment that we first shared as an engaged/ newly-married couple. I’ll miss walking 30 seconds to dinner at Mono Loco on Thursday nights. I’ll miss having other people in the house when Ryan is gone. I will miss having only a few rooms of items to keep track of (and clean!). I’ll miss living in the apartment that I stayed in the night before my wedding.

A few people recommended I take pictures of my apartment before we leave. As my mom said, “you think you’ll remember what it looks like but you won’t.” I already have some pictures of the apartment that I shared in this post. But, these pictures—which try to fit every corner of the room into one single frame—aren’t how I actually experience the rooms. I never stand in a corner taking in as much of the room as my peripheral vision will allow.

So, I decided to take some pictures from a few of my favorite places in the apartment. The view from those spots is how want to remember our apartment. And, I made sure not to tidy up too much because that wouldn’t be true to life either.

We’ll miss you South Street apartment. Thanks for the good times.

PS- Don’t miss me and Willie DE tomorrow night @ 7:30 at Mudhouse in Crozet.
