So I've moved! Here are pictures of my apartment. I have a huge one with oodles of space. Did I already mention I had room for visitors? I am more than happy to put anyone up (I am referring to my friends who receive notices about my blog).

If anyone wants anything, put in your orders soon.
Bye for now,
