Tonight is the first night staying by myself in my own apartment. I feel content, relieved, and in the right place. I talked about making transitions and being wish washy on my decisions, but I have no doubts now. Everything feels right. I’m sad my parents left, but ready to move forward. I couldn’t have done the move without them. Those two drove 1500 miles to bring me my stuff, help me move in and spend time with me. I’m not sure how I got so lucky.
I have a feeling that I’ll be calling Charlotte my home for a while. I really love it down here and life is too short to skip out on the things that make you happy. I haven’t been this happy in a long time and I’m going to run with it.
I know this may be silly to some people, but Grumples is content too. For the past couple of days, he’s been extra playful, extra love-y and loves the new place. He loves watching everyone at the pool from the balcony and my bedroom. He also loves that the dog park is right in front of our building. He’s in doggy heaven here.
The nights here have been rainy, but with the rain, comes beautiful skies. I need to figure out how I’m going to decorate the balcony. I kind of want a bar top around the railings, maybe a porch swing, or maybe a cute outdoor dining table. I’ll Pinterest around 😉
As soon as I get all of my things put together and items bought, I’ll do a tour of the new place! My couch come on Thursday. I can’t wait.
