I know most of you may not know but here is my deal: I went to school at Villanova University in Philadelphia, PA. Boyf and I started dating my senior year there. Post graduation I lived and worked in the Philadelphia area for two years, and boyf did the same. A year ago, I moved back home to Northern Virginia to be with my family and some friends that were still in the area. The plan was for boyf to get a job and move down to VA with me, but the economy hit the floor and that just didn’t happen.
We were both getting tired of driving up and down interstate 95 every weekend to visit each other and knew one of us had to move. Even though I had just moved down to VA, I work at a company that is located all over the world, so it made the most sense for me to transfer back up to Philadelphia. I didn’t think it would happen as fast as it did, but I am happy to have everything pretty much figured out!
Boyf and I decided to get an apartment together about two months ago, and we knew the move it date would be around July 1, but we didn’t know how long it would take me to get up there. He is moving in this weekend, and I am moving all my stuff up during the next 3 weekends. I will be ‘officially’ up in Philadelphia July 4th weekend.
I am so excited! We have been apart for a year and it has been rough. It will be nice to actually have dinner with him, or watch a movie together and just hang out during the week. It’s the little things you take for granted and when you don’t have them anymore they mean the most!
Our new place is so cute. It is a brand new apartment, no one has ever lived in it before. The complex has a pool in it (!!) a gym (!!!!) even a dog park (!!!!!!!) So perfect. The apartment has built in bookshelves, wine racks, a huge walk in closet and a soaking tub! Those are just a few of my favorite things there. I can’t wait to set everything up. I am totally going to be nesting!
The apartment is not even a mile away from Manayunk and right next to Kelly Drive. I know Sabrina and I have already talked about meeting for runs there! I hope I can still come down for a DC blogger meet up, but I am excited to get to know more Philly bloggers too!
So that’s my big news for now! I am excited about this next chapter in my life. I can’t wait to get settled in up there. It’s going to be so much fun. Boyf, Jackson and I are going to have the best time ever!
