Life: Checking In

Well hello there, I'm not sure we've met. My name's Courtney.

That's how I feel, you guys. Has it really been two weeks since I last posted on the blog? Needless to say, it's been way too long.

The past two weeks have been a serious whirlwind. I'm sure you've noticed, but it's already JULY. How did this glorious summer already {half} slip away already? I'm not sure about you, but I'm making the most of every warm, sunny day we have left!

But now it's time for the serious business. We're finally {almost} all moved in to our new place in St. Anthony Main! Just a few more pieces of art to hang and a serious day of cleaning out my old studio, and we'll be able to call ourselves Northeasters. The past week has been exhausting, exciting, overwhelming, trying and incredible all at the same time. But the hard work paid off. Despite a few unsightly bruises from carrying a mattress and a couch across Minneapolis {ok not really}, we're eager-eyed and chipper as ever to have a place of our own. 

So what have I been doing this past week? Well, we spent a few days in Wisconsin with my family, but cut our trip early to head back to Minneapolis to move into our new place together. The best part? My darling sister Cass spent the week with us to help us move! We moved boxes, a couch and a mattress, and assembled more IKEA furniture than I ever thought possible. We hung shelves, decorated every inch of our new place and slept ever so soundly in our new bedroom. We had a minor {disaster} incident with a broken closet shelf and have a few odd bruises here and there, but forgot all about it once we got a glimpse of our new pool. We celebrated Independence Day with good food, friends and lots of fireworks {pyrotechnic and romantic included - apologies, I just had to!} Somewhere in there, I got a patriotic pedi with my sister, had lots of caffeine, ate way too many carbs, spent time on the porch and had a fabulous celebratory dinner with the boy. But man, I missed you guys.

We're still working on getting our Internet set up, so be patient with me and my sporadic posts over the next week or so. I promise, I'll be back soon, with pictures of the new place!

Oh, and have I told you lately you're the best for hanging in there with me through all of this? Well, you are.
