When Fletch and I graduated from college we were looking for an apartment that would be cheap yet classy. We didn’t have the best paying jobs and couldn’t afford much. We wound up in a studio apartment downtown that had hardwood floors and a vintage feel. I loved that apartment. So much happened.
Lily joined our family while we were in that apartment.
I started my camera collection in that apartment.
I started making jewelry while we were in that apartment.
I was really sad to leave that place. We made so many memories in that home. Don’t get me wrong. It was a dump. There were cockroaches, it was in a bad area, my neighbors were freakishly loud but I still loved every bit of it. While in that apartment my parents told me that I would always look back at that apartment with fond memories and they were right.
Fletch and I grew close while in that apartment. Our love developed while in that place and we grew our family while in that apartment. I am excited to see where our life together will take us and where we will make our home. There is so much to look forward to.
