We took these photos right before the living room filled up with our friends for our first get together at the apartment.

We had spent the day getting the final loose ends of the apartment organized and put away. I rearranged the living room for maximum seating capacity and we took our photos before everyone showed up. Our living room is normally not full of ottomans.

The time right before a party is always my favorite time. Sitting in a spotless apartment in the quiet moments before people start showing up feels like the seconds before you know you’re going to get tickled. You don’t know when it’s going to happen but when it does you are going to giggle a lot and it’s going to be fun.

We managed to fit fourteen people comfortably into our tiny living room. The room was filled with a lot of laughter and the party lasted until the wee hours of the morning.
