Coffee Talk: We Moved!

Coffee Talk 16: a chance to catch up on the little things in life—both sweet and salty! August 2019

Hiya, Friend, Happy August! As we’re winding down the summer, I thought it’d be nice to check in and see how things are going for you. And, to give you a little update about me. 🙂 Are you looking forward to anything in August? How is your summer going so far?

I can’t wait to hear all about it! In the meantime, grab a cozy seat, a nice, tall glass of iced raspberry lemonade and join me. I always look forward to our chats. Let me know what you’ve been up to in the comments below. I truly look forward to it. ❤️

Erik pretending to pout about leaving our old apartment… but not quite pulling it off. Pout lips or duck lips? ..

We moved!!! Yep, after talking about it for months and months, we finally moved! We were actually locked into a lease, or else we would’ve moved a lot sooner. Anywho, we’re gonna miss Boston, but we’re looking forward to settling in to Minneapolis waaaay too much to be sad! We found a place with a lovely living room, a nice-ish kitchen (gotta have something to work towards, ya know?) and a friendly neighborhood (top on our list). I told Erik that one of the most important things for me was good lighting for dem photos, m’kay?

Other than that, we’re just taking our time to settle in, learn the ins and outs of our neighborhood, and figuring out which restaurants have the best takeout! If you have any suggestions on that, let me know in the comments below.

It’s just really nice to live somewhere that has a different pace from Boston. Erik and I are planning on moving somewhere with a slower, more relaxed vibe in the future (perhaps a small town), so we thought getting out of Boston sooner rather than later would be a good way to transition.

The last place we lived was Maine and that was a huge adjustment from the city we lived in before, San Diego (too huge and we were totally unprepared for it.) So this time around, we’re gonna transition a bit more slowly, lol. Wish us luck!

Have you moved or experienced anything new this month?

Erik’s first legit post on Beaming Baker! He’s soooo excited to start writing on BB. Give him a warm welcome! 🙂

Travel on Beaming Baker. Have you been enjoying the new Beaming Baker Travel section on the blog? Now that we’ve got things started, check out our Welcome to Beaming Baker Travel post and 6 Things I Learned on my First International Trip post… Erik and I’ve been traveling and storing up pics & stories to share for a little while now, so you’ll be able to join us on our past trips. 🙂

Meanwhile, Erik’s been having a ball of a time writing posts on the blog. He’s was a tad nervous and excited about the whole thing, so make sure you pop on over to his posts and leave a comment for him. He’d love to hear from you!

Right now, we’re talking about where we might want to travel to at the end of this year, and in 2020. So I have two questions for you:

  • Where do you think we should travel in the U.S. this year?
  • Where do you think we should travel abroad (internationally) in 2020?

My nephew, Kai aka Kai Boo Ball to me. ❤️ Isn’t he the cutest?!?

Kai’s Bday… Happy Birthday, Kai! My lil’ nephew is turning two this month. He’s the cutest little guy with an appetite that rivals… well, mine! 😉 He’s a big fan of BB treats (like, for real!!), so he’s obviously my favorite. J/k!! It’s so crazy seeing him grow up so fast. Hopefully moving doesn’t mean that every time we see him, he’ll be like 10 feet taller than the last time… and that he doesn’t go all sassy acting like he doesn’t recognize us. He literally does this if we don’t see him for 1 week. Anywho, join me in wishing Kai a big, ol’ Happy Birthday!! 🙂

A sneak peek for a new recipe!! Can you guess what it is?

  1. Great to hear you guys like your new city! Being excited and curious about where you’ve moved to is a wonderful thing.
    I’d recommend picking various spots of the city and surrounding areas to explore, to really get a sense of what you live near and can experience. Maybe think of them as “mini” trips, pack a picnic!! 🙂

    As for international travel, money wise your best bets are SE Asia and/or Southern India. The food alone is worth the journey, but the cultures and living styles are fantastic to see. Make sure your passports are up to date! 🙂

  2. Moving it is really exciting. It’s always new dating, new experiences, new friends .. And it’s always a great opportunity to change something or start over. In any case, I’m happy for your family!

  3. Congrats on your move! We just returned for visiting Croatia and it was awesome! Since we were on a cruise ship we got to visit several cities there. Dubrovnik, Split, abs Korcula. The people were lovely and the local food and wine were wonderful. If you have never cruised Europe, I highly recommend it. We saw so many new places in 12 days! For US travel I would recommend Utah and the National Parks in the South West.

  4. Happy for you guys. I have been to Minnesota loved it’s a bit colder than NYC Where I live. I am guessing it’s not much different from Boston where you moved from.

  5. Congratulations on your new hometown! My husband lived in the Twin Cities for years and always loved how nice the people were and the weather during the summers… of course, the winters are another matter. I wish you luck with -37° in January.

    1. Oh how funny! So far, we’re really enjoying it here. The weather has been pretty good, too. As for the winters, after several years and Maine and Boston, we think we’re pretty used to the cold. Hopefully at least! .

  6. Moving is always so exciting! New beginning, new friendships, new takeouts 🙂 Will check that travel section as we will be travelling soon so travel tips are always welcome.
