I'm here. 

I successfully moved to the city a week and a half ago and it has been quite a change! For a start, today is the first day it has been warm enough to wear shorts. Yikes!

Moving to a city from a regular-size town comes with some surprises...

It took me an hour to find a parking spot in my neighborhood on my very first night.

I walk about 7 miles a day: I'm late everywhere. My feet bleed. 

My furniture wasn't allowed in the building until a full week after I was: I slept on the couch and repeated a lot of outfits.

You don't realize how big of a deal rain is until your feet are your only mode of transportation.

Earplugs are a game-changer.

It's amazing how quickly you learn to get frustrated by tourists.

Also amazing how easily Henry adjusted to a totally new lifestyle.

My very first belonging in the city. Purchased at my new wonderful grocery store, Plum Market.

I had a semi-surprise visit from sweet Brian on my first day here. 

I think I'm a lot tougher than I am. He knows I'm not, so he was sure to be here to help me adjust and find my way around. We had a blast getting to know the city together.

We discovered Oak Street Beach and Bar on a walk one day. So awesome to be on a beach with the city right behind you!

Since Brian left, I've been making it pretty well on my own.

Picked up a desk my mom built and put it in a cab.

And now I'm already swamped with school work and trying to keep my head above water. I got the Whitney English Day Designer from Target a day early today in hopes of procrastinating less and forgetting absolutely nothing!
