People ask all the time, “Why did you and Adam move from DC to Atlanta?” And really, there’s no one particular reason. We wanted cheaper rent and to live in a city where real estate pricing wasn’t as ridiculous at Washington DC. We also wanted to be closer to family and friends. Plus, both working from home, our little 700 square foot apartment wasn’t cutting it…we needed more space so we didn’t kill each other. So now, fast forward, we’ve been living in Atlanta for almost eight months (crazy) and y’all, I love it. From the food to all the activities (to the addition of our newest family member) I’m hooked on the southern life again.
But you know what? Moving is expensive! Like, no joke. All the crap you have to buy each time you move (outside of boxes and tape for all your things), we’re still paying off credit card bills from all those costs. So once we were finally settled in, we knew we had to keep our decor shopping as affordable as possible. So thankfully, we now take a short drive to IKEA and Target to pick up the essentials. We also went to online hot spots like Wayfair who was able to gift us a few things too for the space. All in all, I love our little home and how things have turned out. Of course, there’s always more things to buy/we need. But for now, we’re happy with our new city and loving our new home.
