The floors we fell in love with are now ours

LIZ AND I HAVE BOUGHT AN APARTMENT IN UPPSALA!

Apt love.

Original painted wooden floors. Love it! 

It’s been crazy these past weeks!! In the beginning of February we were notified that we had have to move out in about six weeks due to personal reasons of the apartment owner. We freaked out since the housing situation in this city is unbelievably tough (competitive) and expensive. However, we ended up with the opportunity to actually buy one, so the search started, and we went to several apartment showings until we found the one that we might have a chance to afford. Some other apartments were either taken off of the market or had gotten too expensive (people bid on prices here. So one apartment, if several people are interested, can end up being really expensive – I truly dislike this system…but it is what it is). It was a really nervous day that Tuesday, two weeks ago, when we were competing for the apartment that we just fell in love with immediately, AND WE WON!! Today, we’ve signed the final contract, and gotten the keys so it’s time to celebrate a new era in our lives. An era where we don’t have to be stressed out about moving in the last minute, an era of owning a place where we can do whatever we want to the interior, and perhaps a tiny bit of renovation, whenever we want to. I’m so unbelievably excited, happy, and relieved! We’re moving, starting on this coming Friday already, and will permanently live there from Saturday! We haven’t really talked about this in social media until we knew for certain everything was set and done. And now it is!

Time to decorate our new home!
