no longer shy

Oh, OK, maybe I'm being too coy about it all. So, you want to know what our new place looks like? Well, we're directly across from City College in Hamilton Heights. But, sorry I'm not putting my address here, we'll correspond privately about that. So here's the corner of our building with City College across the street.

It's a nice big "loft-like" space as people are wont to say. Yes hardwood floors and big windows but we are on the first floor, which means easy moving in but also less light during particular moments during the day. The living room is connected to the kitchen (which must be renovated soon).

There's a little brick fireplace and a long wall perfect for book cases and we're preparing to get our big library tables (with their years of Clemson graffiti intact) up from S. Carolina (if anyone wants to act as mover and bring this stuff up for us, then you have a free place to stay in perpetuity). But that's all in the future. For the moment it's just a big lonely space ready for love.

BTW, there is an extra bedroom/study so don't worry. No more sleeping on our living room floor. Unless of course, you've been out late and partying to hard and you'd prefer the feel of cool wood grooves on your face to that of a soft, comfy bed. But I promise, I'm not going to become some crazed homeowner that discusses renovations as some do their dogs or children. I'll refrain—I hope.

Welcome Home!

The place looks great. I am so happy you found something. I am actually quite envious, because M and I are just about to start the search here in Philly. Excited, but stressed.

So, what do you want for your housewarming gift?

Crazed homeowners don't bother me... if, during your renovations you start getting really creative with the remodeling/decor, or you start putting in cool appliances/fixtures, like computerized multi-jet shower heads, I'd like to hear about it.

Those things are way better than kids, anyway.

(Oh, kidding, kidding.)

I don't even know where we want to live next let alone buy a place. You're so grown up. The place looks fab. Congrats!
