Our first place...


Is teeny... approximately 400 square feet. Back in April when we started our apartment hunt we had quite the "must-have" list... it included finding a building with an elevator and laundry, with an on-site super, a dishwasher, good closet space, a true one-bedroom - not a studio, not a junior... on our desired block on the UWS oh - and all within the strict price range we had set for ourselves.

It. Was. Not. Easy. But then we found this place that was literally across the street from our old place. 
And this apartment checked all of our boxes, every single one. It just happened to arrive in a tinier package than earlier anticipated by moi. 

This floor plan is deceiving. It looks giant! I can assure - it's not. But, oddly enough once we started putting our furniture in, it started to look bigger rather than smaller. It remained open and airy wand yet became cozy. The natural light is incredible. Windows in every room flood the space with sunshine all day long. There are three closets, which means... I got a linen closet! Woo! I have to say, I really don't mind sharing this space with my room mate because he's pretty amazing. And the open floor plan allows said room mate to cook up incredible meals while watching TV. He's pumped. 

We've been living here for 2 months. And a lot has been accomplished. I can't wait to share our little love nest with you over the next few weeks.
