Whew, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? The hubs and I have been super busy the past few weeks—we packed up our cute little bungalow in the ‘burbs and moved to a loft in downtown Birmingham.
We had always tossed around the idea of giving downtown life a try. We love our little city, we spend nights and weekends walking and photographing all its nooks and crannies, and it’s the new, hip place to be.
It’ll be an adjustment for sure. I love trees and grass and crickets and nature. The pups have gotten spoiled having a large, fenced-in yard to play in. The hubs and I have never coexisted with others—not even in a dorm.
But the loft is to die for. I mean, it doesn’t get loftier than our loft. Exposed brick, open floor plan, original hardwood, killer views of the city, and one of the best rooftops in town. My favorite coffee shop is also in our backyard. ‘Nuff said.
And so far, the pups adore being downtown dogs. They enjoy exploring their new ‘hood and have playdates on the roof with other dogs in the building. They even pee on pavement like champs.
It’s still a work in progress, but I think I’m going to love loft life!
