I'm alive! Packing, moving, running, and all other life activities have proven to be all consuming lately, hence the blog silence. The move was a success, and Kurt and I are slowly digging ourselves out from under a million boxes. (I will fill you in on all the dirty moving details later, but I am shocked at how much stuff I have!) We just got the internet set up yesterday, so I hope to be back on the blogging bandwagon soon. Until then, here is a photo of my old studio just before I started packing and then once everything was cleared out. I had some good times in my "big girl in the city apartment" and it is kind of sad to say farewell to that period of independence, but I am very excited to be skipping down this path of new experiences with Kurt. Bear with me until everything settles down and I will have lots of updates to share!

With the impending move right around the corner, get ready for lots of new apartment posts! So let's talk mail. Besides the painful process of changing your information with the post office, updating credit cards, and switching utilities, I'm actually looking forward to a new address.
This will be my fifth New York City apartment, in case anyone is keeping track. When I first moved here, I was really good at sending snail mail. I was partly motivated by these cute return address stamps (#2 was my go to). I got one for the first couple apartments I lived in, but then I became a serial mover and gave up the sort of expensive habit. I don't know how long Kurt and I will be in this new place but I am super excited to commit to a new stamp! There are lots of cute ones floating around on etsy. I'm leaning towards something that mixes handwritten script with print. Here are a few I am considering...
