10 Apr Florida Life Update: Our Move to the Sunshine State and How We’re Handling Quarantine
It’s been a while since I’ve given you guys an update so I thought now would be a good time to hop on the blog to let you know how things are going in Florida! Life has been pretty chaotic around here lately. We both quit our jobs, moved to a new state, and now we’re stuck at home for who knows how long! Life may not look quite like we thought it would now, but I’d say we moved just in time! The stay at home orders just seem to be getting more strict and travel restrictions may have interfered with us crossing the state borders if we didn’t move when we did!
Life in Florida
Although we haven’t been here long we love it already! The neighborhood is so quiet and peaceful, and we feel right at home in our new apartment. Did I mention we can see Cinderella Castle from our balcony?! We weren’t expecting that when we moved in- talk about a nice surprise!
Alex was originally supposed to have his first day of work right after we moved, but now his start date keeps getting pushed back further and further. It has definitely caused a bit of stress financially, but in a way I’m grateful. We’ve had a lot more time to get settled in our new place and make it feel like home! We’ve also been able to spend a lot of time together which is really important to me. And believe it or not we haven’t gotten sick of each other yet!
How We’re Staying Busy
Date nights are really important to us, so it’s been a bummer that we haven’t really been able to get out and explore Orlando. Now our most exciting outings are getting drive-through orders or picking up the groceries! We’ve both been trying to stay in shape by stretching or tuning in to live classes. We’ve been watching The Great British Bake Off, taking Bucky for walks, and playing A LOT of Animal Crossing New Horizons! We’re hoping to try some new recipes, do some creative art projects and maybe even learn to waltz ;)!
We are both pretty eager to start our new jobs and get into a routine here, but unfortunately we’re not really sure when that will be! Until then, our Florida lifestyle will look like hanging out at home, listening to Disney music, and having our regular Starbuck’s drive-through dates!
Hope all of you are well and staying home and staying safe!
