I am so sorry for my radio silence for the past few months, but I have been going through an extremely transitional time so haven’t had time to slow down for a minute, but… all for great and exciting things! I will spare you the details of the time spent in between – finding an apartment, losing an apartment (The rental market in NYC is as insane as it’s rumored to be!), moving Bry out, moving me out, moving to the suburbs – and tell you, Bry and I are officially ROOMIES and Brooklyn residents! As you’ve seen here, here and here, I took a bit of a liking to the “other borough” and as Bry and I started looking at apartments, we realized we were both drawn to Brooklyn more than anywhere else. Specifically, Brooklyn Heights. There is something very old world charm about Brooklyn Heights and it reminds me a bit of my home city, Boston. Tree lined streets and brownstones, SPACE, cute little cafes, quiet neighborhoods (Can you imagine!?) and an overall sense of community. I was sold! While it took a while for us to get there, we’re officially in and couldn’t be happier exploring our new ‘hood!
Being one of the biggest life changes I have experienced thus far, moving to a new part of the city with Bry, felt all the more overwhelming and exciting. Change is such a difficult and amazing thing. I think of myself as someone who needs change about every 2 years. Whether it’s a job, haircut, apartment or new part of town, I start to get the “itch” after doing the same thing for too long. With that said, I am terrible with change, which my mom so kindly pointed out to me last year (yeah, yeah, mom’s know everything). But I think there is something SO refreshing about starting a new chapter, as hard as it may be. It’s a way to start over and learn from your experiences. Bry will certainly attest to learning a lot about me already throughout this marathon of a move (sorry Bry), but like I said, change is tough! With that said, whether it’s moving in with a significant other or starting a new job, I think change strengthens you and gives you confidence! If you’re considering a change, challenge yourself to just go for it. What’s the worst that could happen?
Anyhow, moving on from deep thoughts and on to… decorating! Can’t wait to get organized and update you on our progress! If you want to see some of my decorating inspiration photos, check out my Pinterest board here.
