Saying goodbye...

10-years ago, I made the decision to purchase a lovely 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom condo. I was not dating anyone seriously at the time and I felt that I didn't really need a ton of space. I made that decision because I felt that the smaller mortgage payment would allow me to still travel to MA to visit my family often (yes, I used to "go home" every 6-weeks) and also to travel leisurely.

10-years later, I will be saying goodbye to the place I have called home for the last 10-years. Somehow I feel like moving on means I am officially becoming a grown-up. It is bitter-sweet because while I am excited to have more space (especially since JOE's things take up the majority of the condo), I will miss the coziness of the condo. I had a lot of happy memories here.

I shared a lot of meals at this table. When J & I were first dating, I used to cook him dinner and we'd eat at the dinner table. I also hosted a few dinners with friends.
Goodbye glass table...now we need something more solid because glass and baby don't go together.



The lovely kitchen where I prepared so many meals! I'll now need to get used to a different kitchen. All the magnets on the refrigerator are from places I have visited over the years. I collect magnets :-).



I enjoyed sleeping on this bed. Unfortunately, it has since shrunk since JOE decided to move in. Goodbye bed...we now have to get a bigger and more kid friendly bed so kids can climb in and out if needed.



I spent quite a few summers people watching from this balcony. J even helped me stain it when we had to replace the wood. We don't have a balcony in our new place but we're hoping to put in a patio at some point  so we can enjoy outdoor meals as a family.


Yup...I feel like another era in my life is about to begin. I look forward to all the fun adventures this new era will bring.

Happy Monday readers!
