Memorial Weekend Moving Day

Almost three months after our big moving day weekend, it was time to put the muscles to work to help Phu move into his brand new studio apartment in Cambridge. Thankfully, there was no rain on this moving day!

One of the first things to go was his big screen TV, which thankfully was a flat panel and light enough to be carried down the stairs:

Phu's girlfriend Magali also served as free labor and hustled one of Phu's many bikes (the kid owns like five of them) outside:

While I thought Phu had a pretty full bedroom, along with belongings scattered around the apartment, turns out all his possesions fit nicely into the back of my car and a rented U-Haul truck. You can tell these things belong to Phu because of the plants:

The two biggest plants went into the back of the U-Haul. Did I mention that he had actually moved a bulk of his plants the day before? You'll see what I mean further down in this post.

It was time to say goodbye to the apartment in Brookline...

...and hello to a brand new apartment in a gorgeous building:
I loved all the green spaces around the building, including large patches of beautiful purple flowers complete with benches to take in the view:
Walking into the apartment, it's all stark white walls until you hit the massive wall of windows that faces Phu's new kitchen and dining/living room. I think his plants add the right touch of home and life to his new new space:
Here's his beautiful new kitchen (adjacent to the windows) with stainless steel appliances and granite counters:
A surprisingly roomy bathroom:
And the studio bedroom that is not quite a studio, since there is a half wall separating it from the kitchen/living room space:
It was exciting to check out Phu's new apartment and the whole moving-in process only took a few hours.  We ended up toasting his new place with the strawberry lemonade served in solo cups.

The unpacking process may take a little longer, but I think Phu will find much to be happy about in his new digs. Congrats Phu on being a homeowner!
