Downsizing | Project 365 {Days 87-95}

At the beginning of the year circumstances lined up insanely perfect for us to finally pull the trigger and move- so we did. We said goodbye to our 3 bedroom fenced backyard house and moved to a two bedroom apartment. When I tell people this they respond as if they feel bad for us - but seriously - don't! It has been the best choice we've made in a long time. 

The amount of time it takes to clean our apartment in comparison to our house is just - beautiful. We need to run to the store? Five minutes away vs. a 20+ minute commute to get to town at our old house. We can walk to the beach. Like we literally walk to the ocean- in under 10 minutes- I think that's pretty damn awesome. Just up the road in the other direction is an awesome playground/garden/dog park - more awesomeness. One thing I missed so much when moving to our house - especially in the brutal summer months - was the pool - but now? We have a pool in our complex again!

Having kids young it was pretty easy to get sucked in to the stereotypical 'American dream'. Pride and wanting to prove that we could led us down the road we took. We learned a lot on that journey. But walking away from that? Milton leaving the 9-5 grind and us spending the weekends exploring vs mowing the lawn? Letting go of what we're 'supposed' to do and just doing what we want to do? It has been so liberating I could scream!
