Moving

Tomorrow night marks my last night in my current apartment, as the big move is Saturday.  My roomie and I have lived together since March 2008- we met one of our first nights at Syracuse and lived together 2x in college.  When she decided to move to Boston from Maine after college, we got an apt together and started our friendship PC (Post Cuse).  

The past 2.5 years have been the best of my life. Through the ups, downs, BFs, laughs, cries, hair color changes, snow, rain pouring through our many windows, sunshine-y moments in the backyard, a grill that we only used once, setting off fire alarms a million times when cooking (we have a HOT oven and finicky smoke detectors), locking myself out of the apt 4x... and everything in between, it's been me & her and apt 2.

I'm moving to Southie to live with 2 of my other best friends, and while I have no doubt it will be another time of my life- it's a bittersweet time.  I'm happy, I'm sad, and I've known about this since April, so I am ready.

Southie ladies- here I come! :)

Roomie- I am so happy for you and this next chapter in your life- can't wait to see what it brings, even if I will be just a short ride away and not in the next room.

XOXO- ME

Oh and also, through this whole process, I cannot help but think of the episode when Rachel moves out of her and Monica's apt....thankfully, we haven't ended up like this:

  3. Good luck with your big move! I lived with one of my oldest friends for four years after we graduated from college. It was tough to move on but definitely the right decision. Hope you have a blast decorating your new space! If you haven't been already, the Playwright is a fun bar in Southie.
