Matthew J. Drake and I are moving from the Baltimore area in Maryland to the Phoenix area in Arizona. 🙂
My day job remains the same and so my Piper’s Travel Hijinx will continue. Perhaps because of this, the move isn’t a big deal in our minds. I’ll still be spending my days on my day job projects, 85% of the time on site. If anything, flying out of Phoenix will result in more direct flights for me and fewer connections.
The biggest changes for us will be the space. We’ll be going from a single bedroom to a bedroom and an office. It’ll be separate areas for sleep and for work and for creative content – writing, podcasting, vlogging – with no neighbors upstairs stomping around at all hours. There’ll be a bigger kitchen for my stress cooking. There’ll be a garage to park our car in and a small backyard to turn into an outdoor creative space (in the winter).
All of that at a lower cost of living.
Another factor to consider is that we’re a bit nomadic. We start to twitch if we’ve lived in a single location for more than two years. Change is good to keep our minds stimulated and our hearts inspired.
And so, for us, this move isn’t a huge moment so much as an exciting change of pace in our ever-progressing forward momentum.
It’s our next adventure. 🙂
