Ben arrived with his dad a day earlier than Addie and me. So, he sent me pictures (which I did not at all beg for...sarcasm) so I could see everything!!
a little swingset and baby play area right outside our apartment.
1635!!! holy cow that's old!
saying goodbye to papa in the airport was sad :(
for the relatives & friends who want to see our place, here it goes. a couple years ago, i might have been embarrassed to put up pics of my home in such disarray, but you know what? it's life. maybe i've grown a little.
this is the view from near the front door.
addie was really helpful in unpacking.
absolutely necessary for the morning after we arrived. my mom actually had bought us a few essential groceries - milk, coffee, cream, cereal. but after 10 minutes of looking through kitchen boxes for all the pieces of my coffee maker, i gave up and we walked to a local coffee shop.

another view of the living area from the other side. "balcony" door on the right.
installing those awesome shelves was no small feat. i am SO thankful to my dad and ben for those. my dad said they'll probably never come down; not sure how the apartment complex management will feel about that? I think we've done all future tenants a favor considering there are 5 cabinets in the kitchen. on the other hand, we might have to escape and change our names when we move out so they don't hunt us down.
also, i spy a tiny red high chair!
