on the move

As you may have noticed from a few not-so-subtle mentions, we are finally moving! In the end, we put our house hunt on hold until Husband finds the perfect permanent teaching job where we will settle down. In the meantime, we've found a great new place with lots more space — almost double the square footage, in fact!

(and yes, the move is still a month away, but half of our apartment is already packed)

Our rental is a duplex in a cozy little neighbourhood, not far from where we live now. It has a front door on ground level, which is huge for us after years in massive apartment buildings. It even has a back door with a little patio and a backyard!

The biggest changes for us will be three bedrooms instead of two (one for us, one for little baby and one for guests), two bathrooms instead of one (an en-suite for us = YAY!), and possibly the biggest perk of all: A WASHER AND DRYER. Sorry, I didn't mean to yell. I'm just so thrilled to finally live in a place with its own laundry facilities. I've dealt with coin-operated, shared laundry rooms for almost three years and I have had enough.

So that's the update and you can be sure that there are many packing, moving, redecorating posts where that came from.


  1. SO excited to read posts about the new place -- especially how you plan to decorate/re-purpose what you have.

  2. Sounds like a great place. Can't wait to hear about the redecorating. I'm always looking for inspiration for my apartment.
