Wanna talk more moving stuff? Let’s do it!
A few of you have asked to hear a little more about how we’re approaching our move + road trip to Seattle.
We’re doing things a bit unconventionally. When we first started planning, we were thinking of bringing everything with us and approaching it like you would a normal move. We could either rent a truck and drive all of our stuff up there or ship all of our stuff via a freight company.
But as we headed down that road, the whole thing started to feel cumbersome … which was not at all how we want it to feel.
We want it to feel simple, stress-free, and playful.
So we decided to do things our own weird way. :)
We decided to strap a roof rack on our car and just take whatever we could fit. And … that’s it.
What fits in our car? Well, our dog first of all. :) Then our clothes — working on putting together a capsule wardrobe that’ll cover me May – November in Seattle. Some camping gear. Then a box of bathroom things, a box of kitchen things, and a few decorative pieces. Probably a few other things I’m forgetting … but overall, not much stuff. No furniture. No TV.
Are we doing it like this in the name of minimalism? Not. At. All. We’re doing it like this in the name of this-sounds-like-fun. :)
So what are we going to do for furniture?
We’re lucky enough to know a handful of people in Seattle, and they’re generously offered to let us borrow a few pieces of furniture. We may Craigslist a few pieces too, but we’ll see.
I have romantic visions of creating this little bohemian-feeling nest. It’ll be sparse, but it’s an experiment. A 6 month adventure. I’m excited to try it and see what I learn.
