moving on up.

After four years and two days, yesterday marked the last day in our first place. This apartment represented the end to our long distance years. On our final trip out the door--with his road bike and the poster from our Parisian honeymoon--{cv} and I looked at each other and smiled. We knew this place was just our start. We have so much more ahead of us...


This place may be empty, but our new place is filled to the brim with boxes. My bff {who just got married!} lands in Rhode Island today to help me make sense of it all. Fun trips to the Container Store and Bed Bath & Beyond await us, along with a few festive fireworks. I cannot wait!

I don't have an office set up just yet, but I hope to be up and running soon. Since this will be a quiet week because of the 4th, it may be a bit of quiet week on {long distance loving} too. Don't worry though--Friday's Fancies will still be up on Friday! If you need me, email or twitter work best :) 
Follow along on Instagram, if you don't already, for little updates from me throughout the week. 
Thank you again for putting up with me as we make this transition! xoxo {av}

P.S. Any tips on how to ease Gus + Mr. Pinky's transition? They have never been scaredy cats, but they have been camping out underneath the bed for the last two days. We think the passing cars and street noise may be the issue, but it's a part of our new reality. We have had the pheromone plug-ins going for a week without much success. I just want our old cuddly kitties back!

  3. Before you know it you will be settled in and your furbabies will be themselves again. They are probably wondering where all the things that are familiar to them are. Unsure ... happy shopping and unpacking.. HHL

  7. Congrats on the move. We just moved as well and Louise (http://statigr.am/tag/louisethecat/) was having a hard time adjusting too. We tried to keep her were there are familiar things, the bedroom and living room, while we get everything else set up. One week in and she's starting to settle down. The cars and any loud noises we make still frighten her, but she's getting there. Good luck!

  9. Cats will definitely settle after a bit!
    Our cat pretty much lost her mind when we moved her for the first time...I got her a cardboard scratching mat and covered it with cat nip and treats...that did the trick and she came out to play :)

  12. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS'
