I'm in LOVE!

..with New Orleans!  Absolutely adore it.  I could not ask for more from a city.. and I very well may never leave.  It's been a while since I've been back on the blog, and obv I have lots to update on.. but the biggest news is:

I found an apartment, and move down there in just about 1.5 months.. and it's in the Lower Garden District.  For those of you who aren't familiar, NOLA has a ton of great neighborhoods, all with very distinct feels.  The LGD is full of homes at every turn like this (below) -- a Southern girl's dream.. and everything is so walkable.

For those of you planning on visiting (and please, please DO!), I have a gorgeous 2BR with ample space for my study/guest bedroom (ahem), and all the amenities I need (laundry, dishwasher).  Superb neighbors, cute backyard.. and enough room for me to hone some gardening skills beyond succulents and herbs.  I cannot be more excited for this move.. although it's a little bittersweet moving away from the Carolinas where I have so many of the people I love.

Pictures are coming of the place -- the landlord still had a few things to install and fix before I move in (like central air -- thank God!), and then I'll have about a month until it's officially time to start medical school.  I met a handful of classmates, and they're all normal (!!) and really fun.  I can just tell we'll get into some shenanigans down there.. and of course, study our asses off.
