money diaries vol 5: settling in

I've very aptly named this money diary "settling in" because we have been working on exactly that. Both with settling into our new home and with settling into the pandemic lifestyle. I feel like we have finally struck a good balance between getting things done around our new place and finding unique experiences to engage in that are still safe during this pandemic. 
From our last money diary, we shared all the costs of our surprise emergency move. Since then, we took some time to re-build our emergency savings. Now that our savings are back at a comfortable level, we have finally been able to put more effort into settling into our new place.

just peachy 🍑

With the current state of things, more than anything..I find myself craving simplicity. So a few weeks ago, I found a new outing for us that was exactly that. simple. peaceful. quiet. and still safe to participate in right now.

may 2020

May 2020 felt like more of the same with continued social distancing and quarantining. But also very different thanks to moving into our new place in a new city.

Happy Friday Indeed! 
This is one of the first weeks that has felt "normal" in a long time with getting back to a regular routine.

money diaries vol 4: pandemic moving!

If you've been following along, then you know that Husband and I found ourselves in a position where we needed to suddenly move...all during this crazy pandemic. Just going to say that moving can be an outrageously expensive pain in the butt, but a SURPRISE move where you have no time to plan ahead is especially pricey. And when there is a Pandemic happening, your options are even more limited.
 In just a few days time, we terminated the lease at our loft, found a new place, and moved. It was a very busy, tiring, stressful, expensive week. But glad that we got it done.

memorial day kayaking at great dismal swamp

We've recently moved from our loft and while we 100% miss having the water literally at our doorstep -it's actually been a good thing that we no longer have such easy access. It's forced us to adventure out further and find new places to kayak.  One of our new favorite spots is the Great Dismal Swamp! 
The Great Dismal Swamp is split between Virginia and North Carolina as part of the Intercoastal Waterway that runs along the Southern states all the way to Florida.
