We are all settled here in Manchester, NH! We have been here about two weeks and are getting used to this new life of travel nursing. Despite the unbelievable cold temps of twenty plus below, we are nice and cozy in our tiny, 600 square foot, cape cod apartment. Many have been asking about it, so here is a little tour:
Here she is! Adorable. We are in the top floor apartment. (So nice for working nights!!) We have a side door entrance and a back door that exits into a little parking lot in back. Which is good because I was not looking forward to my car getting buried on the street by a snow plow...
Our tiny little living room. What makes this space doable is the storage. Every piece in the apartment has like five drawers. Yes I've filled them all. The entertainment unit on the left also holds our little tv that we brought along. Good thing we brought it because Caleb refuses to watch movies on "that thing" (the old Tv that was there). "That thing is archaic", he says. So it just sits there haha. We also have a huge closet and a stackable washer/dryer unit in the left corner, not-pictured.
The kitchen! Which actually feels way bigger than our MD apartment. Super open. Love the open shelving. It requires us to keep everything tidy!
All the dishes in this kitchen are vintage and mismatching. Some days it makes my OCD itch a little bit. But most days I'm embracing the "kitchiness" of it all. Also- there is this set of awesome vintage copper mixing bowels. I'm pretty sure the owner probably got them from a flee market for $3. But I am totally planning on buying a brand new shiny set of bowels and asking the owner if I could trade them out when we move out. ...you think I'm kidding...totally not...
And of course, storing our coffee in these cute wooden boxes is just the best.
Bedroom. And the first mattress that doesn't hurt Caleb's back! It's a miracle! You know what else is a miracle?? That we fit all our clothes in the tiny closet! (not pictured)
Another one of my simple pleasure that makes this place feel like a home. I am obsessed with these candles. Rewined. The jar is a recycled wine bottle and the scents are all inspired by different kinds of wine. This one is a Reisling. Yum, yum.
This was my Christmas present to Caleb. Its a vintage suitcase turned into a traveling bar. I bought an old suitcase from the 60's online, built a frame from the inside, and installed a shelf, pockets, and wine glass holder. It's a fun little addition to our traveling decor. And we can make some pretty fancy cocktails!
Bathroom is tiny- but clean and updated. That is all that matters! My little stroke of travel genius is my 'no bathroom storage solution' below...
Last but not least- our cute little patio. We have spent all of ten minutes out here due to the cold, but it's still adorable. Caleb did make it out one night for a quick pipe smoke but he came back in with blue lips. Fingers crossed for a few unseasonably warm evenings between now and April!
Well that's it! Because our travel company is renting the apartment, we don't pay for utilities. So--- our heat is always cranked!
