Between my . . .

Job, unpacking and getting apartment stuff and organizing, finding time to work out and general laziness, I’ve fallen behind on my Scotland Run 10K race recap (Hint: Surprise PR that I in no way trained for). And about offering any sort of update about my move (Hint: Incredibly stressful and resulted in spending my first night in the apartment in tears).

That said, I absolutely love my new apartment and will leave you with these photos until I can get my shit together to write a proper blog post.

The view from my living room during sunset:

The view from my couch (floor-to-ceiling windows FTW). Watching people play tennis (and basketball at the same time, apparently) along with cricket and other things is like having a second TV, conveniently located right next to the first TV. The second TV actually distracts from the first one, and it never has commercials:

Same view but instead of sitting on my couch, I stood up to take it. The section between the tennis court and playground is side of the pool area. I can see more of it from my bedroom window. Andy hopes to use my dad’s hardcore binoculars to check out girls in bikinis there this summer:

The view from my morning run. I also have a little view of the Hudson River and Manhattan from my apartment, but it didn’t come out great so I’ll have to take it again another time:

Chili’s Bar and Grill is conveniently located just a few blocks from our new home. This pleases Andy very much, as evidenced here on his birthday:

My blog in 3D. Not related to my move, but cool nonetheless:

    Aw, Dori. I’m not surprised you were so stressed. Honestly, moving in NYC is THE most stressful thing you can do – even if the day goes perfectly. There are just too many balls to juggle. I totally sympathize.

    I’m so glad that you are so happy with the apartment, though! Waiting with excitement for an “inside” apartment tour. :)

    I am glad that you are enjoying the new neighborhood. Honestly Jersey City is the best. I love the summer farmers market and just sitting around exploring the area. I love the views they are stunning and I do get those pinch me moments- OMG that’s the skyline at sunrise and I live here. Amazing
