Dear Apartment,

Well, it's been real.  It's been a long 3 years.  You've been small.  And cramped.  And very high.  The three flights of stairs were never fun.  But, you were provided a roof over our heads and heat in the winter and air in the summer.  Except last summer on the hottest day when the A/C broke.  Nonetheless, we are indeed sad to leave you, our first "home" - but will not miss the feeling of studying and law school that you carry with you.  However, we will miss the fun times we've had here as newlyweds and beyond - you were a wonderful first "home" for our first three years of marriage.  Although we'll one day get a real home, we'll never have another first "home."  

Take care of your next tenants.  May they be as blessed as we have been.

Love, Me

This is so cute! The Duncans are moving up in this world, and that's a wonderful thing!
I am so very proud of you and your husband for getting through law school! That is such a huge accomplishment. Isn't your bar soon? I was thinking it was in June. I have my fingers crossed for the Duncan Duo!!! Good luck with everything!

What a sweet idea for a blog. I especially liked your letter to the grandmother! Bet you felt great after that.
