I think it's time...

A year and a half ago My Mister and I got married, started new jobs, and took on a caretaking position on the coast of Maine.  As I type, I have a view of a beautiful cove, with a marina across the way.  Sailboats glide in front of our house in the summertime, and we have access to a dock if we want to take the kayaks out for a spin.

However, things have been less than idyllic here.  We thought we would end up saving money, but the cost of utilities is so high, and gas to get us from here to anywhere has been outrageous.  We have decided that we need to move, probably more for our sanity's sake than for our wallets.  The isolation we felt over the winter pushed us over the edge, and we're so looking forward to belonging to the land of the living.

The bottom two windows are ours - I'll have more photos when we move in.  

We've found a cozy loft apartment on a dead end street.  It's in the old brick electric company building, and has exposed beams, brick walls, and a bedroom in the loft that is open on both sides.  Within walking distance is an independent movie theater, Mister's workplace, a co-op,  our favorite little pub with my very favorite beer on tap (Alligash White!), a library and the farmer's market congregates twice weekly.

Oh, and unlimited internet access.  I am so excited to browse pinterest, listen to new artists on Spotify, and watch tv and movies and read and comment on blogs!  I swear, I'm going to be glued to the computer screen for weeks after moving!


  1. That building looks amazing! Moving is always such a hassle but from what you've shared here, you will be so much happier!

  2. Congratulations on the move and new adventure!
