My life in a nutshell.
I’m relocating. Very soon as a matter of fact. I was in denial for a while but now that I’ve signed on an apartment, so it seems this whole thing is really happening. In case you are wondering… I’m leaving Miami, FL for Akron, OH. I know what you’re thinking… and you’re probably right. These two places don’t even compare. But, I’ve chosen to look at the bright side and keep a positive outlook. Honestly…how bad can Ohio reallly be? (Shoot me)
In any case, I’m not afraid, nervous or scared. I figure God’s got this all under control. & He definitely does, which is why I can sleep peacefully at night.
Now, if only all my belongings could magically pack themselves up…
Below is a little recap of my home visit this past weekend. I was able to bring along my mom, which made looking for an apartment, car, furniture, etc way more fun.
I had done some research online prior to my scheduled home visit. So I already knew what I could and could not afford as well as what I wanted. To keep the story short … I got the apartment I wanted. It’s a quaint little space – more than enough for me. And the neighborhood is friendly and adorable. The way a neighborhood should be.
After securing my apartment, mom and I treated ourselves to a delicious lunch. Followed by some car shopping and test driving. Right now, my hearts set on a Buick Verano. I know, I know… such an “old lady” car. Bite me.
Mom and I started the day with a delightful breakfast meal at The Blue Door with one of our colleagues. I loved everything about this little spot. Definitely one I’ll be visiting again.
After our food fuel, mom and I were off to explore Cleveland. On our drive to the city, mom jammed out to Alicia Keys, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry. (No, this was not my music selection. This was all her).
We visited the Kent State University, Aurora Premium Outlet Mall, West Side Market, Legacy Village and Beachwood Mall. Plus we drove around a million neighborhoods just because some houses were disgustingly adorable.
On our last day, we visited Grace Church and hit up a fun little lunch spot with one of my Ohioan friends. Then it was off to the airport.
