One of my favorite things about being married is finally being able to set up my own home with my husband. When I stop to think about it, it’s pretty overwhelming how much even a family of two needs to have a functional household. We have a gigantic mental list (that keeps growing) of things we will “eventually need to acquire” as finances allow – things that most people don’t even think about, or things we took for granted in our parent’s homes. I really miss having access to my dad’s commercial color copier, but that’s beside the point. Anyway, it’s been a little exciting seeing our very own apartment transform from empty space, to boxes stacked three or four high and two or three deep, to loads and loads of dishes to wash and find places for, to random piles and stacks of things with empty boxes and loose paper strewn all over, to somewhat of a semblance of tidiness and organization. It’s still a work in progress, and because of our lack of furniture and wall decor, the place is still kind of an eyesore, but there are little details here and there that I love, and many things I wanted to show my friends and family (that care) back home. So, without further ado, here is a sort of photo “tour” of our apartment!
