goodbye to our sweet little apartment (part 1)

These are photos of the place that has been our home since August 2011—three weeks before Nolan was born! Yesterday, we loaded up the U-Haul and moved to our new place. Steve is actually back at the apartment right now, painting the two bedrooms back to white.

This was Nolan’s room. It was never quite this clean, but I loved it.

Our bathroom. Steve made the shelf to give us some extra space (so we got to take it with us). I’m not sad to leave this bathroom. I always wanted it to have a window so our towels wouldn’t get mildewy, and so I could air out the bad smells that would drift in from the apartment above. A few mornings this spring, we woke up to dirty water pouring out of the exhaust fan in the ceiling from the shower upstairs!

Stephen's and my bedroom. We painted it yellow a year ago, and it made for a happy room to wake up to! The apartment complex chopped down all of the trees that gave us shade, and these windows face east, so we usually had a black sheet over our blinds and curtains.

One more sidenote about the neighbors upstairs—they were from another country, and a completely different culture than us. The past few months, I woke up every night at 2 or 3 to go to the bathroom, and I’d hear the little footsteps of their two-year-old! Needless to say, the two-year-old didn’t start running around until noon or one in the afternoon, right when I would be putting Nolan down for a nap. I am going to love the quietness of having our own place!

I’ll post pictures of the dining room, living room, and kitchen soon.

And then of course, I’ll have to start posting about our new place from 1920 that we’ll be working on for the next while. :)


  1. Our house was also built in 1920! Can't wait to see how similar they may be!

  2. I love the sunny walls in your bedroom! Looking forward to seeing what you decide to do with your new home.

  3. The nursery is adorable! I love the campaign dresser!

  4. Aw I love the walls in the nursery. Moving is so bittersweet, but I am excited to see the new place!

  5. Your apartment is adorable! I'm excited to see the rest of the pictures. :) Then of course, your new place!

  6. bittersweet, huh? change can be so fun though!

  7. Nolan's nursery is adorable :) Moving allows you make memories in multiple places :) Can't wait to see the rest of the pics and the new place!
