The search for a new apartment was quite fruitless (everyone is moving right now. curse you students!). The market to find and actually get the apartment you want is challenging right now. Ryan and I did not want to settle and sign a year lease on a place we thought was mediocre, so we decided to move into his current place since it has pretty much everything we require and desire in a home, save for some closet space and hydro is a nightmare in the colder months. It will be nice because I can move in there at a slow and less stressful pace. I have lived in The Everglades (yes, that is the name of the building!!!) for almost 3 years now. It’s a beautifully old art deco building from the 1920s. It does have it’s downsides, but it has been a place I could actually happily call home. But being a bachelor apartment, it just does not have space for 2 people and a dog to live comfortably. I am excited to move, mainly to de-clutter my life of the things I have acquired over the past several years and to decorate a whole new space (oh, and I guess start a new-ish chapter with my guy) This kitchen has always been my favourite room in my apartment. I lucked out when I got this place. The kitchen is in it’s own separate room (with a door) and gets plenty of natural light, which has always been my favourite spot to take pictures when I’ve been too lazy to trek to an outdoor spot. It will be sorely missed, I can say that for certain.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Mine was just the right amount of busy and relaxing. I’ve got a busy week ahead of me, but in exactly one week I’ll be back in the Bruce Peninsula National Park, and I couldn’t be more excited!
