We’ve been in New Hampster for about 6.5 months now. We showed up at the end of winter, moseyed through summer, and are settling into autumn quite nicely. In some ways it seems like we just got here and in other ways like we’ve been here for years. We still have stuff in boxes in closets, still have nothing on the walls in the bedroom, and still can’t get most places without the GPS. But we’ve also made friends, have settled into a great routine, and know where all of the Chipotle locations within 15 miles.
Now that the majority of our favorite people are hundreds of miles away from us (minimum), I want to start sharing more about our everyday adventures. I want to be able to share with our friends and family the kind of weird and fun and maybe-not-so-fun things we’re getting into, without flooding Facebook full of lengthy posts about hikes and apple orchards and -insert future favorite winter activity here-.
I also just really want to document what’s going on in my life. I have a horrible memory, I can’t remember to write in a diary before bed, and a blog allows me to add pictures so I can remember things in a fancy pants kind of way.
Because I don’t like how sudden it feels to just jump into posting pictures about my life randomly, I decided this change needed an introduction. But here’s the thing: we’ve already been here for half a year. So I made a catch up slideshow. It’s full of selfies and shitty pictures. It’s more for me than you but that’s kind of how I roll on my blog so… there’s that.
I hope you all enjoy reading about my exciting life walking on trails and snuggling with my dog, intermixed with my MS Paint drawings and life advice on not sucking. You’re welcome.
