A Sneak Peek

Tyler and I are both back in Jackson now, but this weekend we got to go see an apartment that looks just like ours. Ours doesn't free up until October. It was sooo wonderful! It's a lovely apartment complex built in the 30's with original bathrooms, hard wood floors and such. The only thing the people have really touched is the kitchens (which I hate but some people like re-modeled kitchens). We went in the evening so the pictures are no stellar, but here is a little sneak peek of what our apartment will look like.



I adore the bathroom, the original tile is my favorite.


The master bedroom. The ceiling light was creating those crazy shadows you see.


The dining room. I can't wait to find a cute vintage table to put in it. Sorry the pictures are a little dark in some areas, there were no over head lights put in the living rooms, so people keep there apartments lit by lamp light, which I also love.


The doorway as we were leaving. That's my mom and dad there, barely visible.
That's the apartment. I completely love it, and can't wait to move into our own. Another wonderful thing is the apartments actually have basements!! Since being at Union (for those of you who don't know Union was hit by a tornado, demolishing a large chunk of the campus and trapping me underneath my dorm) I have had a strong desire to live somewhere with a basement and this was just a dream come true. The apartment is all we could want in our first one, and I can't wait to sign the lease and start moving our things in.

  8. Lyndsee: I totally didn't read your question right, sorry haha. Yes, I'm in Jackson TN right now, that's so neat! It's about 5 mins away from the Green Hills area. It's an apartment complex called Woodmont Terrace.

  16. The picture of you standing alone in the middle of the room looks like a still from a 1950s movie that was made in color. Love it!
