We moved into our new place! Finally a wonderful place to call our own! It has a hallway, two bedrooms, two FULL bathrooms, a living room, dining room, kitchen with cupboards, and a linen closet! There is a ceiling fan in every room and it’s so bright! The guy we are renting from just redid everything in the apt! It’s nice too because they are all privately owned condos, so we are his only tenant. It’s not a big apt. complex with one manager over all of them. He is a wonderful landlord and we just LOVE what he did with the place! It’s literally right on the water, so whenever we go ANYWHERE, that’s the first thing we see! Also, there are a LOT of old people that live there, so it’s really quiet and peaceful and surprisingly safe! That’s what we were looking for because Sean cleans at night so I am home by myself. We haven’t finished unpacking yet, but here are some pics of the place when it’s empty. IT’S HUGE!!! No more studio-one closet-kitchen so small that only one person at a time can fit-for us!

I couldn't really get a good picture of our's too big! With our king-size bed, we still have PLENTY of room!

Big closet (one of two) with mirrors on the door...I think old people love mirrors. We decided that when we were looking at places.

Master Bathroom aka MY bathroom

Kitchen. Yes it has magenta countertops, but the rest is white and beautiful! Big fridge (it's atually taller than me); an oven that can fit more than one pan, cooks at the right temperature, and the door closes all the way while cooking; LOTS of cupboard space with shelves that pull out for easy stacking; a wide window sill so I can have fresh flowers or herbs; a huge 3 shelf pantry that's as long as the closets in the bedrooms. We just love it! We even have a dishwasher! I haven't had one since 2004!!!

Shot from our front door, living room leading into the dining room and hallway. We have a front door and a back door, both of which have screens as well! LOVE IT! We are also on the top floor.

Living room shot from dining room. It's so bright! This was during a sever thunderstorm at 5:30pm. Isn't it crazy how bright it is!

Second Bathroom (sean's bathroom) with pink and teal wall paper and pink and white marble countertops. Old people like pink

Second bedroom which will be our office/storage room.

The best part! This is the view from our back & front porch! Our parking lot is literally on the edge of water...nothing in between!Sean took this picture before he left for Ward council. It's so beautiful and we were so lucky to find this place! We have a pool, a private dock just for our condos, and benches all around the edge for us to go sit and look at the water. We just love everything about it!!!
