What do I miss most about our first apartment? There are actually a few things:
The fireplace- so much decorating appeal, my huge love for brick, and warm fires in the fall.
Having a back yard- our apartment was in the basement of one of the professors from our college and their back yard was beautiful and a great retreat after a long day.
Our neighbors- living underneath a family with two little kids has it’s downsides (think sleeping under the playroom) but it also had perks that outweighed the tiny jumping feet- like just having to walk upstairs for some girl talk, chatting around the backyard fire, learning cooking tricks from Becky, occasionally borrowing their van (we only have one car), having a garden out back, laughing with little boys, random chats with Brian, and the list goes on.
Fall- Oregon Fall ❤ The rain, the chill, the colorful leaves, and pumpkin patches (where are all the pumpkins Texas?!)
Salem- only living an hour from family, a great downtown area with a handful of great coffee shops, my bestie.
