One step closer!

You remember the old adage “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again” Thats definitely been the ruling mantra of the past few weeks.

We decided for several reasons to rent for the first year instead of buy–it lets us get to know the area, we can wait for something we really like, and oh yeah…we’d love it if we DIDN’T have to pay 2 mortgages πŸ˜‰ Keith has been working like a crazy man trying to find us a decent (read clean, safe place, that takes dogs) he must have looked at over 10 places- its been stressful for sure but tonight he’s signed a lease and moving in!

So excited. I’ve seen pictures–its an amazing location. The furniture leaves something to be desired but it will do until ours gets there.

    If you want some advice about moving to an island…hum, where do I start? First of all, don’t bring a lot! Only personal/keepsake/photo type items! SELL the rest, get rid of it, whatever! Seriously, you’ll find you don’t need a bunch of JUNK. I’ve found I’ve been lugging this stuff around and it’s heavy and tiring. Time to purge! As for the dogs, don’t know if they have to be in quarantine or anything like that, but ship them in a BIG carrier. They’ll have to go in cargo and call me for info. on how to ship them properly. There are a lot of rules, etc.

    Most importantly, make sure Kara and my room is ready. πŸ˜‰ We’ll probably be moving to Fl part year so hopefully we’ll see a lot more of you!
    Lots of love and luck with the move. Call me with questions! Been through moving to an island, don’t want to do it again, sigh. Would definitely do things differently. So if you want my advice, I can give you my 2 cents. Love you lots! Bon voyage! Aloha and hugs, Mia and Kara

    Wow, the view is amazing mate. Forget the furniture (hey free chairs you don’t mind the dogs on) and concentrate on how relaxed you’ll feel sat with the punk, enjoying the view, with a cutlass and a bottle of rum on the table next to you πŸ˜‰
