Amsterdam, pt1























I'm sorry, guys. I had a huge post written for this, and then I kept not publishing it, kept running out the door, and finally I decided to just be artsy and conceptual and forego the writing with this post because it was just stressing me out. I have another post of pictures that I will post later this week and hopefully then I can add some comments about how amazing Amsterdam was. 

But everything is really crazy right now. Ben and I are quitting our hellish jobs, moving out of our apartment, and working for ourselves and all of that is happening like, right now. Like Ben is literally on the phone speaking in his Russian gibberish with a realtor. And my only nice jeans are covered in street-mud from running around Moscow all day yesterday, desperately looking for a one bedroom apartment near the metro and near the center that doesn't look like an interior designer was hacked to death in (which you would think would be, I don't know, reasonable). 

Anyway, feelin' slightly discouraged and majorly stressed out. I know that this is all going to work out and we'll have a nice, new apartment very soon, but right now everything is just crazy. 

And I wish I could type more than that, but I can't, because I need to keep looking for apartments, but I hope y'all understand and here are some of my pictures from the beautiful city of Amsterdam!

  2. Wow! So much going on in this post! The pictures of Amsterdam are absolutely wonderful but I am so sorry you have all this stress going on right now. I have my fingers crossed that you and Ben find the ideal apartment quickly and that you are able to settle in nicely. Good luck with these major changes, I imagine everything feels as if it is a whirlwind right now and that your world is on tilt - Just remember everything will work out as it should in the end and calm will once again be restored.
