It's been an interesting challenge to work with such a space but it's been well worth the effort. It really made the difference between feeling like I'm just crashing here and the feeling of making it a home, no matter how temporary. On a related note, we finally found a place! The official last weekend of the cure ended up being the weekend we signed a lease and got our keys.
Day 19: Catch up & take a photo.
I photographed my goal project last week, so I used the time to go back over a few of the areas that we had tackled in previous weeks and make sure I was staying on track with them.
Day 22: Shop for the Get Together Goodies.
While we had originally planned on having friends over for a Saturday brunch, we ended up having to reschedule so we could take a trip up to the city to sign the lease on our new apartment. Instead we had a little celebratory brunch the next day, just the two of us and relaxed at home. I picked up a coffee cake, pastries, and some fresh fruit and flowers.
It's nice to see the apartment looking its best, and I hope to carry over some of these concepts into the next apartment. It was a lot more manageable than I expected, and being the sort of person to throw myself into big projects and wear myself out, it was great to learn a bit of discipline by doing things a bit at a time on a regular schedule.
I hope you all got as much out of the experience as I did!
