Yup, that’s right. After eight long months of co-habitating in a tiny studio apartment, Chris and I are finally moving on up in the world and moving into a spacious two-bedroom apartment!
In case you’re wondering how we ended up in a studio apartment together in the first place, the studio is where Chris lived when he was in college. When I moved back from Korea, I moved in with him because not only did we want to live together, we weren’t sure what city he was going to find a job in. Well, fast-forward eight months later and we’re still in Sacramento, so Sacramento is where we’re going to stay for now. Especially since we just signed a one year lease.
I’m so excited for our new place. It’s a modern apartment with lots of space (a little over 800 square feet), a patio, and a DISHWASHER. You guys, I haven’t had a dishwasher in almost two years; there really aren’t enough words to express how happy I am to have one again! Also, the complex has a pool and a fitness center. Score!
Even though I’m stoked to move, a part of me is a little sad to leave our studio mainly because we have so many special memories here. This is the place where we had our first kiss. This is the place where Chris proposed to me. This is the place where our relationship has been challenged and strengthened for the last eight months. (Believe me when I tell you that sharing a studio apartment is a HUGE test to a relationship.) I am ecstatic to leave this tiny studio apartment, but it will always hold a special place in my heart as the first living space we ever shared.
Anyway, enough with the sappy nostalgia. Yay for having a dishwasher!
