you know it's cold outside...

when the frozen food section at the grocery store is warm.

so maybe january wasn't the best time of year to move to new york city, but i guess we're gluttons for punishment.


we're here. the red-eye was heinous, the furniture didn't show up for a few days (and some of it didn't make the journey at all), it's painfully cold, but in spite of all that, i think we're falling in love. i hope it's not lust. more to come. but for now, more of this:

it's love...I'm certain. the apartment looks so perfect for you. I never did go to the Creer's...but she is darling, so I'm sure her apartment is as well. Deep breaths for at least 2 weeks. It'll be great!

Sally said...

no one knows cold until they have lived thru one east coast winter. we had an elder get his contacts frozen to his eyeballs.
then, there was the time we didn't break 10 degrees for 10 days. i didn't leave the house which makes me wonder why down town areas have apartments so small and tiny you can hear your neighbor peeing. anyway, there is so much to fall in love with, ironically, this is one of them.....you won't know what to do with yourself in june when you break 40 degrees. eat lots.....

Jaime said...

What an experience. I'm a tad jealous. & more than a tad jealous of your fabulous red boots. Such style you have.

Chelsi said...

Mommydew said...

Glad to hear you made it ok. Think of us in August when we are dieing from the heat and you have nice weather :)

Melanie Williams said...

so you made it and you like it, eh?? That's good. It was rough for me in the beginning so it sounds like you are adjusting fine.

We'll be back on the 11th or somewhere around then. I can't wait to see your place.

Noelle said...

i don't know. maybe lust. there's nothing like the big apple. btw, love your red boots! you're a doll and so is foxxy. he's ginormous, erin. we miss you guys, but we may be back in june... wouldn't that be lovely. happy new year, gg.

Noelle said...

Ah you made it! Yeah! Thankfully the other things did as well. Stay on top of that sleep. Looks like it is well needed. I am excited to hear about the NY adventures. How fun!

Madilyn's Mysteries said...

Moving is such a pain. It looks like you are going to love it there though. I wish I could have seen Fox and you before you left!

secondly ... what happened to your stuff? it's not gone forever is it?
thirdly ... so glad you're there. although it's cold it sounds like it's not disappointing either.
