      LOL at least you wont have far to move!! :O) Although, I did rent a truck when I moved across the street!

      I had tonz of books, records and heavy antiques. After about 2 hours of walking across the street I said FORGET IT! GET A TRUCK!

      Really saved time and my back!! 🙂

      Best of luck in the new home!!!

    So happy for you all!!! Are you a bit scared to have all the ROOM???!!! My Mom told me that I couldn't ever move again into a large home because I seem to get more possessions when I moved from a small one bedroom into a 2 bedroom house!

    Boy was she right! LOL!

    Congratulations on signing that contract 🙂

    I was surprised to read that your settee is only 57.5" wide and went back to your photos where you have three people sitting comfortably on there last summer – wow! Guess you have a slim, narrow family LOL

    Congratulations on the apartment!!

    congratulations on the new apartment! it's always exciting to have a fresh start.

    also – i can vouch for the marlow goods bags! they're just incredible. i have the one you linked to in black, along with a satchel-style bag in pig leather, and they are both so gorgeous and have held up to the heavy abuse nyc life for three years now. (my husband works at the restaurants, so i got them with his discount.) they are absolutely worth the investment!
