The Years Before Mr. & Mrs. { Our Own Apartment }

Back at it with another post about Timmy and I before Mr. & Mrs. Today actually marks 6 years of Timmy and I being together! #datinganniversary

So when I graduated in May of 2013 we knew we only had about 2 months left of living with my roommates and we had to figure out what we were going to do. Ultimately Timmy and I decided to move in together and we signed a lease on our very first apartment together. 

Somehow Timmy convinced me to move to where he was from..Fuquay Varina. Granted it really wasn't a long drive from North Hills where I was used to living, but I am so glad we did. We were used to the brand new apartments and all new appliances so we found another brand new apartment complex at the time and moved into there. It was so exciting; having our own place. But we quickly found out, not many people our age lived there.

We had a balcony overlooking the pool, which had grills that we had planned on using so much but I think we maybe used them 2 or 3 times! We did however use the pool a lot while the months were still hot!

Even though we didn't really meet anyone at the apartments our age, I think what we loved most was the fact we were 8 minutes away from our best friends! Well, they are our best friends now but if we hadn't lived in Fuquay I don't know if we all would have become best friends! I went to school with Whitney in college and hung out a few times but when we moved to Fuquay we started hanging out all the time and then Timmy and her husband Jim got along and it was just perfect! 

A big change was not being able to have parties at the apartment. Since we no longer lived in a college apartment complex we had to stop hosting big parties. We still had small get togethers but it wasn't the same!

We celebrated our 3rd Valentine's Day in the ice and snow! 

We were only in that apartment for a short time (less than a year) but it was what showed me and Timmy we could get along and live together.
