Love at first sight

Finding a place to live being 4,000 miles away from the area is a bit tricky. While in Dominica I apartment shopped for weeks until I finally found a place that was perfect for PJ and I. I put an application in, paid a deposit to reserve the apartment--the whole nine yards.

When I finally got to Louisville and was able to scope the place out, it was a lot further from work than I had expected (although still in a very nice area). Long story short, I ended up stopping by one apartment complex 5 minutes away from work and fell in-love with the place. That day I canceled the plans for the other apartment and signed the lease on the new one.

PJ and I are now fully moved into our own two-bedroom, one bath apartment on the first floor of a great apartment community (which is actually nestled inside of an actual neighborhood). This is a huge upgrade from our previous studio apartment downtown.

I didn't get pictures of the whole place, but here is a glimpse of our new home:
My absolute favorite part of the apartment: the living room. Complete with a wood burning fireplace and mantle!

The dining area (taken from in front of the fireplace) and the entrance to our large enclosed back patio.

The kitchen, complete with a dishwasher (eeeek!!!! :D ) and TONS of cabinet space.

The hall (picture taken from the living room) which has the washer and dryer hook ups, coat closet, and leads to both bedrooms (PJ's is straight ahead, mine is to the right and not visible here) and bathroom.

The best part, though? We live within walking distance to a fabulous outlet mall. Great food, great shopping, great area! Plus, the complex amenities are fabulous! Gym, indoor pool, indoor jacuzzi, outdoor pool, club house to hang out in... it really doesn't get better than this!

Hope you enjoyed the tour of our new place. More than that though, I hope that a lot of you friends and family are able to make it out to Louisville to come visit!

P.S. Random shout out to my friend Robert--my fellow half Asian. I know it's not in very good taste to do inside jokes on a public blog, but I just couldn't help myself. He also wants all my blog readers to know that "he says Hi".
