Coffee Talk 14: a chance to catch up on the little things in life—both sweet and salty! June 2019

Happy June! Something about June always brings a smile to my face. Maybe I’m still thinking of my childhood when school was finally done and it was time for summer fun in June? How has your June been so far? Have you been making all the ice cream and summer plans for much-needed summer vacay times?

I can’t wait to talk about that, moving, cookies, and more today! Grab a nice, cold iced tea and grab a seat by me on the hammock. 🙂 It’s time for our monthly chat ‘n gab. Looking forward to hearing what you’ve been up to! Be sure to let me know in the comments below.

Erik and my nephew, PB. One of the things we’re gonna miss the most when we move–time with family. ❤️

Moving Plans… So we’re moving very soon! Let the countdown begin! Haha. Just kidding… I’m not really the countdown type, but I am super, super excited to be moving to a new city that Erik and I’ve never lived in before. It’s very thrilling. This move will be different from the last in that we won’t get rid of everything lol. Alright, that’s a tad bit of an exaggeration, but one of the last times we moved (from San Diego to Maine), we moved with only a few suitcases, and did the whole thing via airplane. Cross-country!! As such, we didn’t have much room for… like, anything.

This time around, we’re planning on keeping more than a few suitcases worth of stuff—especially since our current apartment is the place where we truly started to build Beaming Baker into a business. Like, we have actual matching office desks (adulting, baby!), tons of kitchen equipment, and a bunch of Seville metal shelves with like 500 bags of vegan chocolate chips and jars upon jars of almond butter on them.

So our real challenge is figuring out what to keep, what to give to my mom, and what to donate.

Do you have any plans to move this summer? Erik keeps telling me that summer is moving season, and that we *might* just have a better time finding an apartment since there will be so many available. Fingers crossed!

Reminiscing on Fall in Boston. . Isn’t it beautiful? Hopefully it’ll be just as beautiful where we move. 🙂

Do you have any tips for apartment hunting? Erik and I’ve been apartment hunting like a million times (courtesy of the 10 times we’ve moved in the past 10 years)… but we don’t ever seem to find an apartment that we truly, truly love. Some of that was because of our limited budget at the time, most of that was because we were always in some kind of frantic rush. Meaning: we had 3 days, tops, to find an apartment in a new city. A few times, we only had 1 day!! .

This time around, we’re giving ourselves a longer stretch of time to search, and we’re really going to make sure we at least 75% love it. Lol.

Do you have any suggestions, tips or advice on how to find an awesome apartment? Maybe you have some tips on how to find an amazing apartment in a new city. 🙂 We’re all ears!

  1. But the REAL question is….. WHERE ARE YOU MOVING TO??? 🙂

    Also, I haven’t been getting your emails. I didn’t unsubscribe!!! Do I need to enter my email address again?

    1. Haha we’re going to have a big update on that fact very soon. .

      As for the email, Gmail recently did an update to their spam filters that’s been wreaking havoc all over the place. It’s been such a headache. . You might need to check your junk/spam folder and mark my emails as “Not Spam” to get them showing up again. Sorry for the inconvenience Olivia, and thanks for your support! .

  2. Moving to a new city is always an adventure 🙂 we are planning too, I am just hoping now that everything will go smooth as we are expecting from our end 🙂
    have a safe move demeter!

  3. Hey there! Your move sounds real positive, can I ask what area you are moving to? If that’s too nosey, no worries… I’ve moved numerous times, and it’s always an adventure. Is your upcoming recipe cashew ice cream?
    I have to say I’m not into the keto or paleo diets, I’m mostly looking at fun vegan ideas and those you have in spades! We are of to Spain, France, and Andorra for a month in July. I love finding vegan surprises in forgien countries. Well I hope you have a.great month and thanks for all you do.


    1. Hiya Heidi! You are totally not being nosey at all! We’re going to be sharing that information soon–just want to hold off until all details are solidified. Will let you know soon! Great guess on the recipe! 😉 Omigosh… Spain, France and Andorra?!? I’m swooning! You’ve got to let me know what vegan surprises you find there. I’d love to try your recommendations. 🙂 Thank you for your well wishes–they truly mean a lot to me. Wishing you a fantastic June & safe & happy travels! ❤️✈️.

  4. Good luck on the move!! I kind of wish we’d moved at least once or twice. We’re still in the same house we bought after we got married. We’ve accumulated so much “stuff,” and now I’m in the phase of wanting to downsize and get rid of it all! LOL

  5. Hoping you find the perfect apartment. I don’t think I have any great tips except maybe a check list. So in the moment you can check off if it has what you’re wanting. Where are you moving? Minneapolis? Also I have no need for keto recipes (as in I don’t follow a keto diet) but usually the ingredients are fine with me too. Have a great rest of June.

    1. Thank you so much, Tina! 🙂 That’s a great idea–helps us keep track and enjoy the satisfaction of ticking an item off. We’re super close to finalizing the city we move to–but we’re holding off on saying ’til everything is solid. Will let you know soon! Thanks for your feedback on the keto recipes. 🙂 Happy June to you as well. Hugs!

  6. Moving is exciting! This might sound weird since I don’t actually know you, but if you need any Uhaul moving boxes, send me an email. I moved in April, and they’re sitting on my porch, looking for a good home. I’m in Cambridge 🙂

    1. Right?!? It doesn’t sound weird at all! Thank you so, so much for the offer, Amy. Wish I’d spoken with you before we got a big pack of un-returnable boxes. Lol. Thank you again! P.S. Hope you love your new place. 🙂

      1. Glad you’re all set, and you’re getting an early start! That’s the key I think, though it sounds like you’re both pros at this point. I hope you love your new place as much as I love mine!

      2. Thanks again for your offer! 🙂 Erik and I are still reeling at your generosity. ❤️ Yes, so much yes on the early start. I told Erik that *this* is the time we do it right (aka don’t go crazy from exhaustion & last minute packing). I’m SO happy to hear that you love your new place!! Happy housewarming!
