Spokane So Far


Tomorrow we'll have been in Spokane for one full week! It's still sinking in that we actually LIVE here now, and aren't just on a long visit...but so far we're having fun! It's been a very busy week full of carrying boxes, unpacking, meeting up with friends, and exploring new places. I'm very happy to be (pretty much) all set up at my parents house, and to be honest I'm not in a huge rush to move everything again when we buy a house ourselves. There's nothing that will make you get on the minimalist bandwagon faster than moving, I tell ya! We sold and donated some stuff before we left, and fit everything into a 16 ft moving truck (plus our car) but felt like a lot.


There's still a lot of snow on the ground here, but I'm hoping it will start melting soon. Hello, it's March!



In the last week, we took day trips to Couer d'Alene and Cheney, and have gone all over Spokane to check out different neighborhoods and visit friends. There are so many new restaurants and coffee shops that have popped up since I last lived here, I keep wanting to eat out like we're on vacation! But I'm trying to resist the temptation since after all, we have plenty of time to check them out.



Speaking of food...we finally set up Ian's high chair! I got it awhile ago, but once we found out we'd be moving we decided to keep it boxed up until we got over here. It's from OxoTot and I really love the clean, modern design. It's nice to have a dedicated spot to put him during mealtimes, and he's really enjoying trying new foods--and holding the spoon himself! He's also using their wipeable rollup bib, feeding spoon, and glass baby food container in this photo.


So far, it feels good to be over here! I'm excited to start house hunting in a couple months, but I'm also trying to enjoy this time to relax and spend time with my parents. Feels weird to be in their house again--but this time, with my husband and my baby!

    So appreciating these Spokane posts! I've been following your blog and Instagram for a while now. I currently live in Bothell but my husband is going back to school and a recent acceptance might mean a move to Spokane for us as well! Thanks for giving me a sneak peek into what that might look like!

      Aww I'm so glad! Let me know if you you end up moving! Maybe I'll post a list of recommendations once we've been here awhile.
