starting over

Sunday, July 8, 2012

We finally moved into our new apartment in Japan. Remarkably it is the same square footage that we had in the States so it feels large for Japan. And not to mention really intelligently designed to maximize storage. Not going to lie, that really makes me happy! It is Americanized. I was hoping for the Japanese tub which is deep and perfect for soaking. Although, I can't complain as everything is newly remodeled. And the walls are white.

Moving into a new place gives such a sense of starting over. I am already scheming about furniture placement and draperies. We still don't receive our things for a few more weeks so while we are "camping" I am daydreaming of making it our own.

What is the first thing you do when you move? I am a little odd but I always bring the shower curtain so my bath can feel slightly finished and I can pretend everything is already in it's place.

Dear Ann,
I can't believe you are now living in Japan. Congrats on the big move! Hope you will dedicate many posts to life in Japan. We'd all love to share your experiences.
Cheers from DC,

congrats on getting in! Shower curtain, huh? thats a good idea actually so one room feels 'finished'! I'll have to keep that in mind. I always hear stories of these TINY Japanese apartments so a relief that you'll have some room to live in. Can't wait to see and hear more!
