We’re starting to get physically and mentally prepared for what I’m calling our “2015 Adventure,” although I’m sure it will end up being more like our 2015/2016 Adventure. We leave for Vegas in a couple weeks and after a difficult time finding a place we have decided to stay with friends (who just finished building a gorgeous house) while there. We saw it for the first time this weekend while we were in town for their wedding (Congratulations again Farah and Phil!) and it is AMAZING! That leaves us with figuring out where we are going to stay in Vancouver and where we are going to temporarily live when we sell the house.
Vancouver is CRAZY expensive so we might be living in a teeny tiny place while we’re there, but I’m not really anticipating that being a problem. There is only two of us and our pup, so we don’t need a ton of space. Plus, it’s only a few months. I absolutely love Vancouver, so I can’t wait to spend more time there!
I was a little nervous about the whole renting for our main home because we haven’t rented in 10 years, but boy oh boy have rentals changed (or maybe it’s that we’ve grown up and can afford a more “grown up” rental)! The rentals I’ve been researching remind me more of a luxury hotel than an apartment, and it’s getting me pretty excited for our future temporary home. We are pretty sure that we want to end up in downtown Minneapolis and there are some pretty cool places to choose from. I’m ridiculously excited about having the ability to walk almost everywhere. I’ll obviously need to drive back and forth to work, but we’ll have endless entertainment and dining options within steps of our home and that sounds really appealing. Living in the midwest this isn’t really something that most people do, and I’ve always wanted to give “city” living a try. I think it’s going to be hard to downsize while we live there, but it is temporary!
Well that is it for today! I hope you all are having a splendid weekend!
