Here's a little peek at our new apartment in Brooklyn.
We've been here almost three months already and everyone is settled in quite nicely.
Henry has adjusted to apartment life. The doting doormen and free hot chocolate in the lobby have helped with that process. Not to mention the amazing view he wakes up to every morning.
He's made friends at school and loves riding his scooter to and from instead of the dumb school bus. He is now a born and raised New Yorker.
And I'm thrilled to be back in an apartment. I very much liked my house in Minneapolis, but being back in a cozy apartment feels really comforting and safe. Really, I never even used half of the rooms in our big house. I just hunkered down in my bedroom or the kitchen most days. We did have to get rid of half of our things though in order to fit. A major down-sizing. At first, this was a sad and daunting task, but it's really nice to live with your bare essentials and surrounded by only things that you absolutely love.
It's kind of like living in a really great hotel room.
