Remember when I mentioned that I had some news to share? Well, I do! After dating Terrance for almost 6 years, we decided to take the next step and ... move out together. There has been a lot of sleepovers, but living together is an entirely different story. It will be "our" place versus mine or his and we will need to make some adjustments to ensure that we're not driving each other nuts. I have to admit that this feels both exciting and terrifying for us, but we'll be making a lot of compromises along the way. There's not enough time for us to see each other throughout the week so what I'm most excited about is to be able to wake up next to him in the mornings and weekends.
We both work in the city so it was an easy decision for us to move downtown and avoid the hour and a half long morning and evening commutes. After viewing a few different properties, we felt overwhelmed and conflicted. We never knew how difficult it would be to settle on a place, but thanks to a piece of paper and a pen, we were able to weigh out the pros and cons of each unit and agree on the one which made us feel at home. The paperwork is nearly complete and we will be picking up our keys on April 1st. Everything is happening super fast, but I'm lucky to have the support from my family, girlfriends and work friends. I've been slowly compiling a Secret Board on Pinterest for inspiration on how the place will look (while he's looking for a car...), but once the space is set-up and furnished, I'll be sure to share it with you.
In the meantime, follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (@aney.m) to stay up-to-date on our move!
