Where was I?

It's been almost a month since I last posted, so here's what I've been up to.

I moved!
Good grief, it was such a process. A long, stressful, exhausting process. Although Spencer and I have done a ton of unpacking, I feel like barely anything is in its place yet. The only spot in the house that feels cozy to me is my bed. Instead of using a headboard, we pushed the bed against the window seat and made a comfy little nook with some plants.



I am enjoying this house much more than the last one we were in.
It has:

  • a (tiny) ocean view from the house and a private beach
  • character. This house is interesting, architecturally speaking, and isn't at all a cookie-cutter house like the last 6 places I've lived.
  • large windows that keep the house bright all day (something the last house seriously lacked)
  • lots of wildlife around. So far we've counted 9 turkeys, 3 adults and 6 babies, and quite a lot of deer. We've named the deer we see the most often Shayla and the turkey we see the most often Jerome. 
  • a small waterfall nearby that I can hear when it's quiet in the house and the windows are open. It leads into the ocean. 

As for the location, this area of Maine is one of my favorites and I'm so happy to finally live here. I'm happy to have good Thai restaurants nearby, I'm happy to live near a record shop, I'm happy to not have to drive 30 minutes to get to the grocery store. I'm still an hour away from Target, though. *sigh*

I also love how close we are to Mount Desert Island/Acadia National Park. The other day we went out to run some errands and ended up driving around Mount Desert Island. Spoiler: it's beautiful there.

Since I haven't been blogging, or even on my computer much at all lately, I've been using Grid Diary to document my daily life. Do you use a journaling app?
