So today I want to share with you our humble abode!
So for now we brought with us just the necessities (what could fit in a suitcase)...clothes, shoes, beauty products, a few pictures and that is about it! Since we are only here for 9 months (we will head back to the states at the end of May for a few months and then head back over seas for another season around August, we have no idea where though) we didn't want to put a lot of money into decorating but wanted our apartment to feel like home! The team is so great and provided us with kitchen items, all furniture...the big stuff! We just bought a few things like a quilt, pillows and a few decorative items and that's about it! First stop...the kitchen!
Look at that covered fridge! We still have a few Christmas Cards up...they make me so happy! And can I just say Instagram Magnets are the best.
And that is our washer squeezed between the oven/stove and sink there. No dryer, which I really don't miss. Except for sheet cleaning days...sheets take foreverrr to dry! Now onto the hallway...so exciting, I know!
I am taking the picture right from where our front door is. Now lets walk a little further and we will run into the bathroom on the right...
The white thing on the wall is a heater! We have one in the kitchen, bathroom and living room. And man does it heat our place up quick.
Next up, the living room...
We did buy a lamp for the living room and our bedroom. I know it sounds silly, but lamps to me make a house so much more "homey". I love the light they put off! Oh and I spy...Robert, also know as the master of bed making.
This is the room where we throw (a really comfy) air mattress on the floor and it quickly transforms into the guest bedroom! It has worked great with all our guests, very cozy :)
Plenty of card games and Settlers (best board game ever) have been played on this table.
Last stop...the bedroom!
Built in closet/shelves for our clothes to the right and where our clothes dry to the left!
And there ya have it! A tour of our cozy apartment. Not extravagantly decorated but simple and more than we need. We are so grateful for this place...it is perfect to us and for this time in our life. It has become our home and haven and we just love it here. We have a few more months left in this place and when we do leave we will always remember this home and all the memories made here during our first year of marriage!
