Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Boston apartment

We love our little apartment in Boston.  It is perfect for our family.

This is looking at our house. 3 apartments share one front door and on the other side, 3 apartments share that front door.
We are the green door. Our door to our apartment is inside the green door to the left. You can see it in the window by the front door.
This is a view of the entire house.
This is the door to our basement where we keep our bikes and stroller. I spend a lot of time and strength everyday lifting our double stroller in and out of that basement.
This is a picture from the bottom of the street looking at our apartment (these are all multi-family homes meaning anywhere from 3-6 families live in each house). To the right of the picture is the parking lot where we park our car.
This is the parking lot at the end of the street where we park our car. Parking in the city is a big deal so you purchase a parking space (expensive) so you have somewhere to park it. Where we live you can't leave your car on the street at night or it gets towed or a ticket. IMG_3586
This is a park at the end of the street where we love to play. It is a hidden gem. It has 2 playgrounds, one for toddlers and one for older kids along with a sandbox and sprinkler pad. We love it.
This is a view from the playground to the parking lot. You can see that we are very close to both our favorite playground and our parking lot.
This is a picture from our kitchen looking at the front door. Our apartment is narrow and long.
The first room on the left when you walk in is our den. (I did not clean up perfectly so don't mind the mess).
The first room on the right is the kids bathroom.
The second room on the left is our bedroom. We have a door between the 2 bedrooms.
The third door on the left is the boys room. Their room is connected to ours as well.
Couldn't have the boys room without Forrest's special things.
The second room on the right is our bathroom. Storage is definitely an issue in cities so we are storing things everywhere. There is nostorage in our bathroom.
The last room at the end of the hall is our kitchen. It has plenty of storage which is great. We love our kitchen.
This is looking from the back of the apartment towards the hallway.
When you walk into our kitchen, our playroom/office is to the right. It's supposed to be a dining room but at this phase in our life, a playroom was much more needed. We love it!

All that's left is for people to come visit so come on!

Thanks for the tour! It's an adorable apartment and I can see y'all creating lots of fun memories there this year. I told Kevin that I wish we could come visit you! That would be so fun!
