I find that capturing little details with Instagrams and piecing them together is a great way to tell a larger story. Do you remember the Thanksgiving recap I did all in Instagrams?
Well, as you may know, Ryan and I moved into a new apartment in our favorite neighborhood of Cincinnati (Northside) a few weeks ago. While there is still so much to be done (hang pictures, make curtains, etc.) the worst of it is behind us and we are so, so, so happy to be living here.
Here's what the moving process was like . . .
Auggie's not quite sure what moving is, but so far he likes it.
That weird in between time when you have far too many keys
A well deserved drink after a long day of moving furniture
Record player on the floor: Erin McKeown plays the soundtrack as we begin the organize furniture.
Adjusting to the new view out the windows, August is happy his reflection came with us.
Mattress on the floor for now (can't wait for that box spring and bed frame)
Lots of boxes and hampers to be unpacked . . .
. . . but Auggie is a good helper.
Picking up some Billy bookshelves at Ikea
I have shoe cubbies now!
And garment racks!
Which August likes to climb (naughty, naughty)
A few pretty items make the kitchen start to feel homey.
As do the peppermints on the window sill.
Cute Easter-egg-colored houses we can see out our window
A shop a short walk away sells Jeni's! This is either a very good thing or a very bad thing.
(Explanation of my obsession here)
August finds all the high spots in the new place where he can get.
Also a short block away: lots of great places to get brunch. We take a short break from moving to indulge.
Hanukkah candles and our new window-scape
The first snow as seen from the window
Our "pretty things table" full of objects that need to find their new home
Sorting through my teapot collection
Our artist's figures, united at last
August is just glad Ryan's dressing came with us 'cause his sock drawer is August's favorite napping spot.
Ringing in New Year's Eve at a bar within walking distance
Having New Year's Day brunch just down the street as well. We can walk everywhere! We love Northside!
Stay tuned for a holiday recap in Instagrams coming soon!
