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.

april 2020

April was an interesting month of learning to adapt to this new lifestyle. The reality that this pandemic is here to stay set in and we began to adjust to this new stay at home lifestyle.

Leaving our Loft

Does anyone remember those 90's after school specials featuring twenty-somethings living in their trendy lofts in the big city? Because I do, and I always told myself that I would do that someday. And now I can say that I have! 
We've recently moved into a house in the suburbs, but we spent the last bit of our twenties living in a waterfront loft. It was tiny (700 sq ft), but what it lacked in space it more than made up for in with it's modern touches, waterfront views, and proximity to downtown. I will absolutely miss starry nights on the rooftop, kayaking from our private dock, watching giant cruise ships sail past our living room window, and being about to walk & bike to our favorite local hangouts. So I wanted to document a few quick photos here of what life looked like during this season of life.

one year after graduating

With the constant upheaval in the world, I almost didn't even realize that is has been a year since I graduated from dental school and officially became a doctor! It's a little crazy to think about since this has been a life long dream and I am now living out that dream every single day.
