The move is over! All last week it was cloudy and rainy and didn't really get too hot. But of course, Saturday, moving day, it was the hottest day ever! Hot, humid, no breeze, and just awful. Everyone's clothes were just sticking to them and the guys were soaking wet. It was horrible. Thankfully though, I had some great people helping me move and they really got the job done.
I LOVE my new apartment. It's even better than I had envisioned. Tons of natural light, open floor plan, huge vaulted ceiling, and so far I haven't even had to turn on the a/c. It's so cold up here on the 3rd floor, which is very odd. Today I have the balcony door open and my 2 bedroom windows open and the ceiling fan going and it feels amazing in here. I always love having air circulating and natural light pouring in. I never even realized how dark and closed off my other apartment was until now. Man, I am thankful I moved. This apartment rocks! :)
The complex is in a beautiful valley with ponds and surrounded by beautiful hills. Being on the 3rd floor, my view is amazing. Hills, hills and more beautiful tree covered hills. I love Tennessee. :)
So the move is over, however the unpacking is not. I'm currently stuck right now trying to plan out my kitchen. Not sure where everything should go, but I'll figure it out.
Once I have everything in place, I'll be sure to post photos. I want to share it with all of you.
P.S. I just saw this country music video on tv and I just laughed. It was filmed on 2nd avenue downtown, right next to my work. He's standing in front of the courthouse. If you watch the video, my building is just off to the right (it's not shown though). The "bar" is actually a lobby to a building with condos in it. (Actually I think only 1 famous person lives in those condos. The 2nd level is always lit up with fancy neon lights and you can see guitars everywhere and a white baby grand piano.) When the couple stops next to a fence to get out from the "rain", it's my parking garage. And when they are in the car, that's either my building in the background or the one across the street from us. I find this so amusing. It's very interesting how they get things to look so ideal on camera. :) See the video here.
