Flying back and forth to the states is not cheap, it averages us about $1000 round-trip per ticket. This break, we decided that it was worth it for Chris to go back to take care of some legal business for us and to visit his mom because she's had a hard time since his dad passed away earlier this year.
So, I've got the house to myself for the next 10 days. I made this tour of our apartment a few weeks ago to help an incoming spouse decide if she wanted to move in here (she did!).
I'm pretty sure that someday I will look back on our time in this little apartment fondly. There is something to be said for the simplicity of life in a 500 square foot home: or at least that is what I keep telling myself.
