Move-In Weekend!

After over four months of anticipation, the day had finally arrived – the day we moved to our new apartment in Jersey City!

Matt and I played tourist today at the Hoboken Waterfront – which has always been one of our favorite places to relax on the weekend. With the coming of (slightly) warmer weather, we headed to there today to take advantage of the sunshine and…
