But my second two years in New York were a different story. I moved in with Hannah, Lindsay Ann and Emily into a, well, huge apartment on the Upper West Side. When we signed our lease, it was being gut renovated, but we had a vision for a lovely home. Specifically, roommate Hannah had a vision.
Now, three years later, Apt 9A looks better than ever. Hannah is flourishing in her design work - she writes the most adorable blog, she was featured on HGTV's "First Time Design," she's got real clients, and now she and
our her apartment is featured in Time Out New York.

Some of my best New York memories took place in that apartment. Monday night Bible study. Dinner parties. Cocktail parties. (Really, parties of any type.) Bagels and reality TV with the roommates. Now, roommates have moved out, new roommates have moved in, but the charm of this home remains the same. I love this apartment. And even more so, I love Hannah and her spunk and style!
