One week hiatus 

I thought I’d be able to stay on top of blogging during the move and was doing pretty good for a few days there. Then we made the long drive over the weekend from LA to Seattle and now we are here in our new city finally! And we’ve been unpacking ever since. #movingisexhausting

Our incredibly thoughtful friends Kate and Hayes lent us their air mattress for our first night because we were exhausted from the drive and there was no way we could have unpacked the entire truck to get to our bed the first night we rolled in.

imageYesterday was our first full day in Seattle and it was drizzling on and off. It was a perfect welcome to the city’s weather. We unloaded the entire truck in 2 1/2 hours and returned it a day early.

That night Hayes and Kate came over to see our place as well as our friend Gretchen. Gretchen and I have been friends since 7th grade and I couldn’t be happier that she and I now live in Seattle together. You will be hearing those 3 names a lot from here on out! 🙂 she was so sweet and brought us a housewarming gift of succulents! Those are the only things I can keep alive at the moment and I love the way they look.

In the picture above, that succulent was a going away present from our good friend Mason. I call him mason jar (mj for short) and bought him a mason jar a while back with his name on it. And on our last night in Cali he bought us that plant.

I of course already miss everyone in Cali, but I’m excited to start a new chapter in a new city! Please stay tuned and be patient while I take the next week to unpack and I’ll plan on continuing to blog next Monday November 2nd, which is Mattie and I’s link up date for your favorite thanksgiving traditions! See you soon friends!

Also if anyone would like to guest post this week, please let me know! Email me at In the past I’ve had time to seek out bloggers to guest post for me but this move has rocked me and I’ve literally had no time.

    If you love succulents and plants in general, I recommend you check out The Palm Tree in Ballard. Not only is Ballard one of my favorite neighborhoods, there are plenty of restaurants and boutiques in that area. LA is definitely a place I want to see/potentially live in – but welcome to Seattle!

  2. Glad you made it! I’m sure moves like that are tough, especially if you’re doing it yourself without a professional moving company helping. My mom and I did it twice and it was tough!

    Can’t wait to hear about your new life in Seattle when you get settled in.
