Moving On

via my other blog, Ran Away to Maine

Spencer and I moved into this house in September and after having a conversation with our landlords a few months ago, we were under the impression that we would be renewing our lease this summer for another year. We felt so relieved and secure knowing that we wouldn't have to move once again, especially so close to our upcoming wedding. We aren't in love with this house, but it works for us. We aren't in love with this area, it doesn't have everything we want, but we like it quite a bit and we love exploring the surrounding mountains. Recently I've been nesting a bit more since I was preparing to stay here longer and we've been working in the garden quite a bit, tilling the soil in the garden plot, preparing to plant pumpkins, and trying to get a little color into the dried up flowerbeds. We also fenced in a portion of the backyard so that Theo can run around freely. I was okay with the idea of staying here till the summer of 2017.

Last week our landlords informed us that they're putting this house on the market in the next few weeks, giving us the option to buy it from them or move out when our lease is up. This house isn't one we would buy, so we've decided to move. It is incredibly hard to find a place to rent in Maine that suits our needs and budget, but thankfully we quickly found a place. I'm honestly shocked how quickly and easily we found a new place to live. The 24 hours before we found our new place were agonizing. I couldn't sleep, I was making a million mental lists of things we needed to do and by when, my heart felt like it was about to beat out of my chest...I just didn't know what to do. But oh, how quickly things turned around!

Although I hate moving, I am very excited about moving to our new house. I think it's going to suit our needs much better and it is only a 60 second walk to a little beach overlooking the Penobscot Bay. After spending the past 8 years in a little beach town in Florida, I have really been missing the ocean. Plus, our new house is only 60 miles away from Acadia National Park versus our current house which is 190 miles away. I truly can't wait to move in to our new place and start exploring that area more.

Moral of the story: get everything in writing before you start making plans and don't bother beautifying a lawn that you don't own. But most importantly, don't freak out too much. You'll be okay!
