Goodbye apartment 43

Four years of calling Ridgepointe home is officially over. I turned in the keys to the apartment on my way home from work today.

I'm not very sentimental, but I think I'll look back fondly at the experience. It was cozy and comfortable, the first place that Anthony and I lived in together, and if the Hampton house wasn't a combination of 1/3 cheaper and twice the size, we'd still be living there.

I won't lie, I'll miss it. But, I never have anything interesting or worthwhile to experience if I don't take the occasional leap of faith to try something new. Moving to a new place always has some sort of adventure associated.

I did a little searching of my photo database, and discovered that the first photo I shot at Ridgepointe was the brand new Keurig coffee maker that Anthony decided to purchase in December 2010. It's an ironic photo, because Anthony's birthday present last month was for a new Keurig to replace that one for the house. He took what is now the old Keurig to work with him and they make coffee with it at the school. Check out the photo below.

To whomever moves in there, I hope you enjoy the long trips back and forth from the parking lot to the apartment, the neighbors who play the bass on their stereos too loud to sleep, the hotties who walk around in the summer in their swimsuits, the nice neighbors you'll live adjacent to, and the light posts that always fall down. You'll especially appreciate the stunning sunsets from the bedroom balcony.

Goodbye apartment 43, I'll miss you.
