Goodbye, First Apartment!

It's been bittersweet over here the past few weeks, as I mentioned on Friday that I moved out of my apartment. It's been the only thing that has been "mine" during my two years in Michigan. While I still consider "home" in California, this was my home away from home. The first place I decorated all on my own, the first place I hosted guests, the place we spent many nights watching movies, having deep conversations, laughing, crying. I will always remember this apartment as the place I lived when I fell in love with my future husband! 

With moving out comes a lot of packing, discarding junk, and getting organized. It's been a long few weeks!! So, what's next?! 

For the next few weeks I'll be living with McCann's mom, then I will move into our beautiful new apartment in mid-May! I can't WAIT to show you. I'll live in the apartment until we get married in September, then McCann will move in :) I've been told by him that I'll need to make the new place a little less feminine...we'll see about that ;) Just kidding! I have a few ways to work with what I already have to turn it into a bit more masculine of a look. Stay tuned!

As a way to say goodbye to me current place, I'm posting some of my favorite pictures of it from my Style Me Pretty home feature!
