Moving on and out…

Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 11.19.56 PM

After five amazing years in my West Village apartment, I’ve decided to put it on the market. This summer I moved in with my boyfriend, which was really exciting, but means that it’s time to move on, and out. I spent a lot of time in #3D, so this transition is a little bitter-sweet. It may sound strange, but over the years that apartment began to feel like it was part of me– my little jewelry box, holding so many memories and experiences.

It’s home to countless nights curled up on the couch with my girlfriends talking about life and love. It’s where I was taught to meditate, and where I learned almost everything I know about blogging and social media, which then turned into my career. It’s where I fell in love, broke up, had first kisses. It’s where Dawn and I had our tradition of Sunday night t.v. and frozen yogurt. It’s how I finally understood money and committing to something. It’s where Vivian and I got to pretend we were living in a real-life Friends episode. It’s where I did my first renovations. It’s where I grew up.

It was the stage for my New York life.

And that’s what makes me so happy to give it to someone. I know it’s potential– its special sauce. Something about being on those tree-lined streets, blocks away from the Hudson, soaked in so much delicious history, that just breeds magic.

If you live in New York and are looking to potentially buy, come to the open house on this Saturday, December 14th or the following Saturday, December 20th. Information here:

  1. I love that you lived a places that became apart of you, that you found a home and grew up. Now you are on your way to a new chapter of life! Moving out and up is more like it! I haven’t felt that way any place I’ve lived and I think it’s wonderful to hear about it! Gives me such hope to find a place to really snuggle into and call home. Greatest of luck in your new place!

  2. I love that you believe in the power of your apartment’s special sauce. You know a girl and her place are friends when its special sauce is legitimate and leaving is so hard! Good luck with the sale!

  3. Congratulations and all the best for your new move! I fully get what you are writing about how a home becomes a part of you, through all the events that take place in it. Even the little things can feel huge when you move on from a place. I recently left my home of three years where I started blogging and fully dived into my love of cooking, crafting and gardening. But the future can only bring better things!

  4. Very cool blog. I am just trying to get started with my own blog/blogs. I love to write and I have so many stories. Stories of the stage (I mom to 2 professional ballet dancer’s and 1 professional musician, piano pit player). I know a lot about moving on and memories. I am 55 and have been married to my best friend for 36 years this year. Hope my blog looks as good someday. Good luck on your new place. 🙂
