|So much stuff!|
As my fiance and I went through the process of cleaning out the "cobwebs" of our stuff, we both remarked on how cleansing the process felt. He commented that he feels "lighter" since getting rid of old college textbooks and notebooks that have been in storage for years. I notice that eliminating so much of my old stuff, while itself a physical act, has opened up space for new things to come in. In a way, my whole life feels a bit more spacious now.
After a few days of organizing, a trip to Ikea, assembling furniture, and lots of unpacking...I can now say that the new apartment is starting to feel like home. We've both noticed that we sleep much better here, as the apartment itself is quieter than our old place. This is a great thing! We plan on putting artwork up on the walls this week, and that will be pretty much the last step of this move. I look forward to settling in here and getting to know my new neighborhood, and am open to living this next chapter of my life!
