Drumroll please........IM MOVING!


So I have been sort of dreading this post for a few reasons. But at the same time, I have been excited about it also. So here goes! I am moving! Yay! Ive got a beautiful one bedroom apartment that I am moving into this weekend. As you all know right now I am living with the boyfriend and my pup. With the end of our lease, we have decided to get our own places. We are not ending things, just getting our own space. I dont think that moving in together was necessarily our problem, I honestly think it was our lack of space. We live in 650 sq ft with only one wall separating our living space from our sleeping space. This means we do everything together. There is no door to close if I need to work and he wants to watch a movie. Even the best couples need some alone time and this set up has made it very hard for either of us to have any independence. Something that is very important to me. While it is definitely a sad time, we are both very happy with our decision and looking forward to the benefits it will bring. We know that a lot of people will not understand or agree with our decision, but we dont really care. As long as we are doing what is good for us, then I really dont think it matters what any one else thinks.

So, while I am sad that I will not be walking into the apartment and seeing the boyfriends face everyday, I am also through the roof excited about my new place. After flipping out and not thinking I would find anything decent in my price range that would be a good place for me and for Dex, I was so lucky to find this place. It is a basement apartment with lots of light, way bigger than our place now, has a yard and dog run for Dexter, and so many other pluses I cannot even begin to tell you how lucky I feel. I will be posting pictures of the new place and more details about it soon, but there it is. The big news.

This will also be the first time I have ever lived alone! Something that I have thought every one should do at one point in their lives. Especially women. I think there is something to learn from being and living with yourself. I cannot wait to see what comes of all of these big changes. I am in a major transition zone and I know that there is a lot of room for growth and opportunity here. I am planning on taking full advantage of it!


  1. aw I totally support your decision Lacey. My boyfriend and I went through something sort of similar last year. We had been living together for a year and a half, and then moved back in with our parents to save money while he went back to college as a full time student. It was a really tough transition, and it may take you a few months to get used to, but hey, you've got your OWN space, which is really exciting :)

  2. I think that's great getting your own space (: Congrats & best wishes!

  3. Go for it! Sounds like a nice move toward independence, which is never a bad thing. I would be very excited, too. Moving doesn't mean that things need to change, or that things are bad! It's just how things are. I wish you the best of luck with moving in, and hope you get to indulge in some nice solo time :)

  4. Good Luck! Can't wait to see pics of your all new alone space! I'm happy you're happy :)

  5. How exciting! I can't wait to get my own space. From the sounds of it, your relationship with the bf will only benefit from this! Don't listen to what people say :)

  6. will you still be in the neighborhood? we haven't got enough time together yet!

    well congrats!!! I am looking to move soon too. There are a lot of conflicts that come with having roommates. I hope you enjoy your independence and I know you'll enjoy time with the boyfriend even more now that you do not have a chance to see him everyday.

  8. how exciting! you will love it! i lived alone in an adorable one bedroom for years. i loved it far more than ever having a roommate. and you get to redecorate!! the best part of moving of course...

  9. Congrats! I completely understand needing your own space, thats what many couples dont understand. So good for you two making a very mature decision like that.

    I've lived alone for going on 4 yrs now, I recommend that all women should at least try it for a year. I've noticed that I've grown up much faster than my friends that have always had a roomate.

    Good luck & enjoy yourself!

  10. TOTALLY agree that every woman should experience living on her own at least once!! I had such an awesome experience, and I know you will love it. Plus you have Dex to keep ya company ;)

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
