Memory Lane Monday: First Apartment

MomsBlogging.com is hosting Memory Lane Monday. I have missed it the last couple weeks, but they are back on track and asking for your memories. Go by and share and read what others have to say! It’s great fun and it gives you something to blog about too:) Plus, what a great way to encourage you to record events from your past for your children to read in the future!
My first apartment was the one I moved into with my first husband. I actually lived in an apartment the summer before that with a friend, but it was her apartment and I was just hanging out for the summer and didn’t really have much say in things, so I don’t count it as my first!
Anyway, we picked out a wonderful apartment. It was on the second floor (no one above us) and it looked into the woods behind the apartment complex (better view than looking at other apartments. There was a pool and the laundry building was two buildings down. It had a living room, two bedrooms, a kitchen and a dining room. It even had a bay window in the living room and it was perfect. We got married one week after graduation. Between the time I finished exams and we got married, I made trip after trip back and forth from my home in Lynchburg to our apartment in Williamsburg. We were given enough money as wedding gifts that we bought a dining room suit and a bedroom suit. Both were very nice. I can remember setting up the apartment just so with plants and my hutch where I displayed my stoneware. The kitchen organization greatly resembled my mom’s kitchen organization…no big surprise there. The extra bedroom we set up as a library with books, a place for David’s music stand and trombone and a fish tank. It was our spot away from the world and i was so very proud of it.
