Our First Place.

I've never been more excited to start an adventure as I am about the adventure the manfriend and I are about to embark on. We just got our first apartment and it couldn't have gone more smoothly. We thought that looking for an apartment back home while living overseas in Greece was going to be very difficult but we definitely got lucky with this one. 

Every morning for the last couple of weeks my guy would check the listings in New York and see if anything fit what we were looking for. We were very specific with what we wanted, it had to be located preferably between both of our parent's homes, close to the main shopping areas, but also quiet and the apartment itself needed to feel warm and cozy.

 Well we hit the jackpot, about a week ago my guy called me into the living room to check out a new listing that was just posted, the pictures were amazing and the location was absolutely perfect. I immediately regretted looking because I fell in love, we sent the listing to our parents and contacted the landlord, keeping our fingers crossed. 

We made it a point not to get our hopes up because with our situation we doubted anyone would want to deal with us. As much as I didn't want to think about it I couldn't help myself, this was the perfect place. It was literally right between our parent's homes, five minutes either way. The apartment was clean and just what we were looking for and the best thing about it is that it is right across the street from the park, I would be in a runner's heaven.

The next morning we woke up to an email from the landlord and he said to give him a call. I thought, well if he didn't want to deal with us he wouldn't have us call, so this is a good sign. Because of the time difference we had to wait to call which made me anxious the whole day. The first attempt at calling we got his voicemail and left a message. We were literally playing phone tag because we had to call from Skype and couldn't leave a number, so we had to have him email us to tell us to call back.  

When we finally got in touch he told us, that he'd be more then happy to give us the apartment, he was aware of our situation and he was cool with it. We had our parents go and check it out, they thought it was great. We emailed him back to give him the go and bam we now have our first apartment. Nothing has ever gone this smooth in my life, especially something I wanted so much. I move in March 2nd and will have it all set up for my guy and I when he returns the end of April. 

This is the perfect first apartment, not to big, it has all the amenities, it looks so cozy and having a view of the park is pretty awesome. We have already started picking out furniture and coming up with ideas, I can not wait to decorate, entertain and turn this apartment into our home. 

Here is what we are working with.

 I am so in love with this kitchen, there is so much space.
