We have an apartment!!!!

We have and apartment waiting for us in Santo Domingo. It's still feels a little surreal that we are leaving in less than 6 weeks. It's getting chilly (well some nights are down right cold) here in New England, so that makes it even more surreal that we will soon be basking in island warmth.

The apartment is in the same small apartment complex Eric's sister, Zoila, and her family live in. It's actually the same floor plan, which makes it easy to picture where I want to put things in my head. And, it right above her apartment on the 4th floor, which is actually the top floor of the building. We'll have roof access to dry our clothes on lines.
It's has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with a third room and small bathroom behind the kitchen that we'll be using for an office. It also has a nice balcony overlooking the street and the courtyard below.
Here is the outside of the complex. Our apartment is the top balcony in the middle. I can't wait to get in and make it home!

Wow, Karin! How fun is that? I know you must be really excited to start your home there. It will be a great adventure for your little family.
And I know that the weeks to come will be difficult as you prepare to leave Boston. We are really thinking about you guys.

this is crazy...i can't believe you are moving. although will you be closer now to me than you are right now? :) so i imagine it might make the transition easier knowing that you will be right near eric's family. and the building looks really nice. will you stay here the whole time? try to move again once you get to know the area more? we have a lot to catch up on. :)
