We finally got ourselves a new place you guys, YAYYY!!! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you must be new here. Finding a new place is all I’ve been talking about for the last few weeks (sorry for all those who aren’t new and had to endure my whining). To cut a long story short, our current apartment is up for sale and since we didn’t have $500,000 to buy it (I don’t even have $500 to spare right now), we had to find a new place.
We could have stayed, but we were advised by our real estate that even if our new owners didn’t want to move in and we were ok to stay, our rent would be increased to match the current market. And given that the apartment in the block next door to us was going for almost $100 more than what we were paying, we knew had to move while we could.
After countless apartment viewings and applications, we finally got a call on Wednesday that we had been approved for a place! We aren’t moving too much further from where we are now, but it’s still going to be a big change from the place we’re so used to. We’ve had some really, really good moments in our current apartment so this move is all a bit a bittersweet. I’m happy to be embarking on a new chapter in our life adventure, but sad to be saying goodbye to a place we’ve called home for 19 months.
To celebrate those 19 months, I’ve decided to round up some really fond memories I have from this time period. Enjoy!
Bringing Severus home in March this year. He has filled our home and our hearts with so much love!
Spending Christmas last year together, feasting on delicious food, opening presents and drinking too much wine.
We’ve had countless rowdy BBQ’s here, but my favourite was definitely Jared’s Tiki Birthday Party last year!
All of the sunsets and sunrises we got to watch on this balcony. I can’t remember how many coffees or wines were had here, or how many beautiful deep conversations were shared between us and our friends. But they were some of the best memories of this place!
Can’t forget all the plants I tried to grow on it too, haha!
All of our date night ins!
Our many family get togethers! These photos were from Mothers Day this year.
There are really just too many moments we’ve had in this apartment of ours to recap in just one post really, but this home has been has been our favourite so far. I’m reminding myself though that we’re moving on to a new home now, and I’m excited to make more memories!
Cheers to the next adventure,
