Update On The Move
It's been just over a week since we moved into our new apartment.
So much has happened in such a short amount of time - between moving all of our stuff on our own with just the Tesla, interviewing and starting a new job, settling in, trying to make our new place feel like home, waiting on shipments, making sure we've got all we need to start out, trying to take advantage of the beauty that is our new town, making new friends and more. It's been crazy to say the least!
A lot of people have been asking Tyler and I how we feel about the move. Are we happy with our new town? Is It what we expected? And so on... To be honest, most nights we either go for a drive or a walk after work and just look at each other in awe that we have been given the opportunity to live in such a beautiful place. It just does not feel real. It's like we're waiting to wake up from a dream!
We know we won't be here forever so we've really been trying to take in every moment with a sense of gratitude and excitement. We've also been really focused on making our home a place for friends and family to visit and get away with as little resistance as possible. Our first guests are gonna be Tyler's parents and we couldn't be more excited!
Tyler's job has been going amazing so far and the fact that he comes home happy about what he does makes it all the more worth while. I recently started working at a coffee shop close to our new place to start getting to know the area. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to work and build relationships with an awesome team. It is also allowing me to focus on my music - I'm excited to say that I've decided to take a leap and really begin to place an emphasis on my music again! I've started planning out my next few projects as well as scoping out some venues to play at and am going to start posting music on socials more regularly so keep an eye out. (Thank you, as always, for your support!)
As incredible as this experience has been so far, there's no doubt that it's been stressful. As independent as Tyler and I both are, we do miss our families - mucho. It's been difficult being away from them. I've also definitely found myself to be a bit more emotional lately with trying to navigate everything happening during this period of transition. It's not easy for me to admit, but it's necessary to mention because it's normal. Just know that If you're going through something similar, you're not alone.
Something that I've been meditating on lately is the saying "we make plans and God laughs." Today, I came across a quote by Joseph Campbell that read, "We must let go of the life we’ve planned so as to have the life that’s waiting for us." I don't think it's ever supposed to be easy, but I do think it's always worth it.
Sending love always,
