I have figured out where to live, so now it is on to the new adventures: renovating our house, having a baby, and still finding ways to travel.

Addicted to Craigslist
Since we have moved into our new apartment, we have noticed to massive prices on furniture. With the chaos or the last two weeks, it just seemed right that we find furniture as cheap as possible. Thankfully we had a few good pieces to start with, like my antique bed and dresser (which will one day go into a guest room). We also had most things for our kitchen and a small dining room table. So I have been on the look out for a full sized mattress, to fit in the antique bed, living room furniture, a desk and chair, and a dresser for Joe. My budget is to not spend more than $1000 to get ourselves set up comfortably. This is what I have scored so far:
office chair: $30
leather loveseat and couch: $450
Price to feel like we really have a home: Priceless
I started blogging to document a summer trip to work in Alaska and process through a very sad break-up. Things have only moved up for me as I met someone new, got married, moved all over the world, found a home, had a baby, and now prepare for baby #2. Life has its challenges, but nothing I can't live with!
