I Live Here

September 9, 2014 — Leave a comment

Although it has only been a number of days, in some ways it feels like a lifetime since my Six Months on the Run and Six Month Recipe Recap posts. Just after I spent time recapping, it was time to pack the van and I was off and away to St. Augustine. Needless to say, it’s been a whirlwind for the past 11 or so days (not to mention all the days leading up to the move) but as I kick off my second full week in St. Augustine, I figure what better time to take a breather and offer a brief rundown of recent events.

Note: I realize I’ve broken my own Two Day Rule during this moving period. I decided allowing my brain, body, heart and spirit time to adjust to the move and calling a timeout felt much needed.

If you ever decide to move across the state, or country even, don’t have many belongings and feel a truck or trailer might be a waste of resources, consider renting a van. All of my material possessions (bed, keyboard and bike included) fit nicely in this commercial van rented from Enterprise, with room to spare. I was even able to fit a dining room table to deliver to Andrew. Win!

Come Friday evening, I will officially be a St. Augustine resident.

The very same day I posted about my pending living arrangements falling through requiring some rerouting of plans, a text message alerted my phone with an offer of another place to live. In that moment, I felt the giant monkey on my back climb off and watched him run around the room, jumping for joy (figuratively speaking).

With that particular monkey set free, I was able to spend the remainder of my week and a half back in St. Augustine feeling a bit more at ease, and focus my attention more fully on my company and my surroundings. One particular surrounding I’ve found myself gravitating toward in the evening hours, is Vilano Beach. Just north of St. Augustine, this location has become a prized spot to watch the sun set.
