new home

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

I'm terribly sorry things have been so quiet around here. My life, since getting back from Europe, has been crazy. Which is mostly to do with the fact that Steele and I have been still living out of a suitcase. Finding a home proved more difficult than we anticipated. Our plan changed a few times and the story is a bit wearing and silly, so I'll spare it. 

The above images are a few peeks from our new apartment. I am so grateful to have this place to call my own. (Well, mine and Steeles :) Though we were lucky enough to have friends to stay with while we looked, I could never shake the feeling that we were essentially homeless. Having a home, having a space that's my own, is something that's really important to me, and something I'll never take for granted. 

Our apartment is a one-bedroom apartment in the NE quadrant of Portland. We've never lived on the east side and are looking forward to exploring and finding our own places and personal landmarks. One of the worst things about feeling "homeless" was that I felt like a visitor in my own city, like I didn't belong. There was nothing to ground me. 

For now things are still in boxes, the floor needs to be mopped, that dratted cable cord is just running through the living room. But I am so happy to be here.
