my mom, frank, and i have been working since last friday to unpack, organize, and arrange our new place in seattle. frank and i are excited to now have the living room, dining room, bathroom and bedroom complete and ready for visitors. we’re hoping to finish up the guest room and storage unit on friday.

we had a few bumps in the moving process, but overall things are well. we’re liking our new place and enjoying our neighborhood. everyone that we’ve met on our walks and at the block party have been friendly. i think it’ll just take time for us to get used to living in the city again; we both still can’t believe that we live here now.

schmoo was a little nervous when exploring his new home at first, but likes the apartment now. i think he enjoys being able to see us better as we move from room-to-room.

here’s the outside of our building. it was built in 1930 and recently renovated.

we love the vintage details, like the art deco doorknobs:

frank found the perfect place for his family’s clock in the entryway:

and i appreciate all the extra space for our frames and treasures.

our cozy living room looks out into the garden…

…where we found a home for our bird feeder, wind chimes, and pug buddha.

the living room has a pass through and a walkway into the dining room and kitchen.

i’m still amazed that my mom was able to find a place for everything in the kitchen. thank goodness for tall cupboards!

  1. Looks good! Can’t wait to see the place post-design. It’s like watching TLC! đŸ™‚ Seriously, though, it is nice to have you so close again. It’s like I’m a freshman at the UW again. Can you pick me up every Sunday for laundry and bad tv again?

    Love,

    Tim

  2. Hey Sandra,

    The place looks great! It was great spending time with you and Frank. I am looking forward to staying in the spare room when I come to visit Seattle.

    Lots of love,
    Mom
