We’re driving in the one lane road out of Sandbridge. My hair catching the breeze. We’re puling out of the parking spot, debating where we should get our one last coffee in Asheville, in New Orleans. We’re reluctantly saying good-bye to our Hyde Park bungalow, our swanky Candler Park guesthouse. We say good-bye to the Kent house, that got us through the darkest early days.
Back on the road again.
Our Subbie, holds the contents, a little microcosm of our precious, precarious world. Our pillows, my robe, my computer monitor, Ryan’s chair. The underrated items that have felt like home.
I’m surprised really, at our ability to adapt to so many different places, take in change. I’m proud of how we’ve found resilience.
Here’s a few lessons we’ve picked up along the way:
- 💰 Negotiate – always. One of the early realizations we had was every AirBnB host was willing to negotiate the price, especially for long term stays.
- 💻 Upgrade the internet. You’ll be happier and work better.
- ✨ Don’t deny yourself the small joys. Minimalism is overrated but you’ll truly miss less than you think.
- 🔑 Build your routine. From workout to meal prep, while your surroundings change, this creates stability.
