Home Sweet Home

As soon as the wheels touched down on the Charleston runway, I heaved a sigh of relief but it wasn't until we claimed Bruco and Paolo in the baggage area that I felt like I could breathe again. Hallelujah... we all made it! Trent rented a car and I hailed a cab to follow with the dog crates and luggage. It was late in the evening when we finally stumbled into our temporary apartment. We were a little nervous upon opening the door since you never know what you're going to get when you rent something online, but we were pleasantly surprised. The apartment is in Mount Pleasant, an adorable suburb outside of Charleston. The apartment came fully furnished including dishes, sheets, towels, etc which is convenient since everything we own is floating on the Atlantic and won't reach us for a couple of months.

We opted to save a couple hundred bucks a month by renting a one bedroom and having Currier sleep in the living room but on our first evening we discovered the apartment had a big walk in closet and it made a perfect little room/fort for Currier. He loves it in there but we're thankful Currier can't speak in complete sentences otherwise he'd be going around telling people that we make him sleep on a closet floor and I'm sure that would prompt a little visit from Child Protective Services.
