So Long Apartment by the Chattahoochee

This week I am living in an empty apartment. I found some old pictures from when I first moved in and thought you could reminisce with me....

Our outside space complete with Albert the albino frog. He lived on our patio for a few weeks. We were tight. I miss him. Okay, not so much. You'll notice I also have a flamingo in one of my pots, and my gnome Freddy in the flowers on the table. What can I say? I'm weird. And the inside...
This was before curtains, lamps, wall hangings, an extra chair, and new pillows. Want a drab to fab makeover? Curtains and lamps do wonders!

A perk to having an engaged roommate...fresh flowers. :)

The kitchen was small but worked for us...most of the time.

bedroom, I had to flip the bedding after awhile, because the large bright flowers became a bit much.

Imagine a couple of brightly painted mirrors on the wall. Yep, that's about right.

O, there's my mirrors on the floor. Yes, pile on the floor by my chair, that's about right too.

Well, there you have it. My past year in pictures. I've had a lot of good times in that apartment. I will miss this place dearly. I will miss the river and the trails and the coffee shop and the free book of the month. Mostly I will miss this...
Thanks for a good year Hillary! I will miss nights of Alias, swapping crazy hospital stories, and overall enjoying spending time with you and getting to know you. You've been an awesome roommate, and I wish you the best as you share your life with Justin!

That is a beautiful tribute to our apartment. I so enjoyed living with you this last year and getting to know you! You are an amazing woman that will do (and already are doing) wonderful things for the Kingdom! You have made this past year so much fun and I have loved our nights of Alias, chatting, crying, laughing, eating on fine china, and "studying". I can't wait to watch you figure out your next step and see what all God has in store for you! What a joy it has been to get to know you and live with you :) Love you so!
