Sundays

January 16, 2019

On Sunday we decided to venture a little further west in search of Mexican food (and Mexicans). 🙂 We found a whole area loaded with Mexican groceries, taquerias, panaderias, etc. Woohoo! We stopped at a spot called La Caldasa, which promised lots of soups and homemade tortillas. J got the posole, and I tried the […]

The first week

January 9, 2019

It’s kind of hard to believe we’ve only been here 4 days. We really worked hard to get all the rooms except the office in comfy/livable condition, so that we’d have a warm space that felt like home. We’re still missing some big items (replacing the table that our movers broke, putting up a hanging […]

January 8, 2019

Within 24 hours of arriving in GVL, we found a Chuy’s. Hallelujah for comfort food, queso, and real margaritas. 🙂

We made it to South Carolina!

January 6, 2019

After three days of rainy, slow travel, we finally made it to our new home! Let’s skip over all the logistics and pain points and annoyances, and just get to the important part: we love our new home. We’ve moved into a loft in the Village of West Greenville, which is an artsy, eclectic, hipster […]

Mama’s Sack Lunches

January 6, 2019

Day 2 of our drive to GVL was pretty uneventful (thank goodness!). Lots of rain, but no crazy delays. We pushed to make it to Montgomery that night, and I’m so glad we did! We found a Doubletree hotel downtown, had a mediocre hotel dinner, and crashed. The next morning, we needed some breakfast. I […]

Moving to GVL: Day 1

January 3, 2019

We had a slow start to our journey to Greenville. Our plan was for our movers to come early morning on Wed. Jan 2, then they’d drive our stuff overnight and unload it in our loft. We’d follow a bit slower, staying in New Orleans (Ace Hotel, yay!), then driving the rest of the way […]

The Home Stretch

December 31, 2018

Somehow it’s December 30th, and we move away from our home on January 2nd. Everything is happening so fast! We’ve been trying to visit all of our favorite restaurants – this week we hit Fukumoto, Ah Sing Den, Justine’s, Small Victory, Elizabeth Street Cafe, the patio at Hotel San Jose, and even had snacks at […]

Merry Christmas!

December 26, 2018

For me, Christmas means family. There are often other lovely things – decorations, food traditions, music, the rare bit of snow – but mainly, it’s everybody gathering at my parents’ house, hanging out, and talking about memories and future plans and funny stories. I should have taken photos of all of my mom’s Christmas decorations […]

A New Car!! (insert Price is Right music)

December 19, 2018

Can you believe it? After 10 years with our beloved Little Pica (a 2008 orange Suzuki SX4), we finally bought a new car. Honestly, this only happened because we weren’t sure Little Pica would make it on the drive to South Carolina.  Still, we’re so excited for such a luxurious vehicle! By luxurious, I mean […]

Endless Packing

December 10, 2018

So it looks like we’ll be moving on January 2. We’re super excited, and kind of antsy – we hate being in limbo! We’ve been trying to pack a little bit every week, which means we’re surrounded by half-packed boxes. And there’s still so much stuff! How do we accumulate so much STUFF in such […]
