LOFT

Hi Everyone!
 I'm blogging from a friends flat at the moment. 
I've missed you and apologize for being so MIA since the move. 
I've tried to keep in contact by Twitter and Instagram though! 
Fingers crossed, my internet should be fully running by tomorrow! Moving into a historical building requires more self sufficiency than a single girl is used to! My flat is a converted factory from the turn of the century and was abandoned for years, so getting necessities like internet and cable is a bit more challenging than Im normally used to. Its always been a dream of mine to live in a historical building of some kind....im just so thrilled things came together so well. 
Im absolutely loving my new loft and feel so inspired and free in my new area. If you've been following my blog, you would have gotten a sense of how much I miss my time in Shanghai. The energy of being in a bustling city and everything it offers appeals so much to me. Im just so happy to have found a place for Bao and I with historical charm in a big city. {Here are some photos I snapped over the past few days}
