She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not


The only not so amazing part of receiving a bunch of beautiful, thoughtful gifts for all of our rooms is that we live in the West Village in a 700 square foot apartment, with not so many rooms. Receiving our shower gifts reminded me of our imminent need to relocate. I vote for LA. My fiance, more realistically, is pushing for Chelsea or the Upper West Side here in NYC. We’ll see. But in the meantime, inspired by Nora, I’ve come up with “What I Won’t Miss” and “What I Will Miss” about our little humble abode nestled in The Village.

What I Won’t Miss
The broken AC unit in our bedroom
The perpetually clogged sink in our bathroom
The always-fighting couple that lives above us (And the frequent f-bombs that come with)
The "oldness" of our apartment; it never feels squeaky clean
The tiny pieces of brick that fall from our crumbling exposed brick wall
Our serious lack of closet space

What I Will Miss
Our quiet block
Our apartment’s amazing location
The bodega around the corner that delivers us pints of ice cream
Roxy, the neighborhood Burmese Mountain Dog
The beautiful, towering tree outside our living room window
The mom & pop bookstore around the corner
The neighborhood bike shop
Our proximity to the West Side Highway (Although Justin insists we’ll be close to the Hudson River in our new spot too)
The countless amazing restaurants within walking distance
Our exposed brick wall
Did I mention the amazing location?
