Movin' On Up


Change scares me. A lot. I used to not be this way - moved to college without any family, moved to NYC right after, studied abroad in Spain... But alas, I grew up and my fear of change grew with me. I try to put the fear aside and not let it come between me and the things I need and want to do but here I am less than a month away from moving out of what has been our home for over five years and I'm a little scared. Yes, we're moving on up - to the Upper West Side. We're packing up our one bedroom in the West Village and moving sixty blocks north to a high rise building on Riverside Boulevard. It's bittersweet because we both love the West Village and we've been there for what feels like a very long time. We got engaged, married, moved jobs, and spent countless nights cuddling in our humble abode downtown. But it's time. It's time we move to a place with a little more space and somewhere that's a bit closer to Kenny's office. Of course, the amenities helped convince us - a washer and dryer in the apartment may have sealed the deal. So come July 15th this New Yorker and her hubby will be reporting from a desk on the 39th floor of a building in the Upper West. Eeek.

  1. Hey, change sure is scary but it's also good for the soul :) Besides, isn't Riverside the boulevard where they hosted Kips Bay decorator Showhouse last year? If that's any indication, you'll have one heck of a view on the 39th floor!

  2. Change is scary but usually worth it in the end! We just moved back to Florida after more than a decade away, and I was SUPER scared. We love it here though and we are so happy that we made the leap. Enjoy the time of transition and get excited for what is to come! xo

  6. We're moving in the exact same day! We move to our (permanent) place on the east side on 7/15 as well. Once we're both settled in, I think a double date is in order. :)

  8. I am so incredibly jealous of the fact that your washer and dryer will be in your apartment. That is my dream. And you will love the UWS. It's so pretty up there.
