Farewell, Fifth Floor Up

If you did not get the memo in my last post, I am moving to Brooklyn! 
Manhattan, you have been amazing the past six years, but it is a new year and time for new adventures. I am moving in with two of my best friends, to a completely renovated townhouse. I'm excited to learn a new neighborhood, find cute new restaurants, bars, and shops, and ride my bikes everyday! 

As excited as I am for my new adventure, It is also bittersweet. I still cannot believe I am leaving my adorable little studio on the fifth floor up. Of course, in traditional Alexis fashion, I had to photo document the apartments final day in it's full form, as this past weekend, I moved all of my personal belongings to the new apartment, which I have dubbed my winter home.

My vacation home, the fifth floor up, is now mostly furniture, art and the necessary items needed for me to function on a day to day basis, until the movers come and take the rest of it away. Thankfully, I have a couple more weeks to cherish my past life, and take in everything one last time. I mean, it is not like I am leaving New York City, I just will not be spending as much time in my old stomping grounds. 

Without further ado, the fifth floor up, on its final day as a fully decorated apartment! 

Sad to be leaving the fifth floor up...

But, ready for new adventures! 

CC, Thank you.

Photos of the empty new apartment to come! Obviously, updates as the furnishing and decorating begin as well!
