Happy Halloween to everyone! As I type, Kit and I are waiting for the handful of little trick or treaters that should come and for Hamp's plane to land. He was in Baltimore this week working and will be home until next Tuesday before he has to go back.
First, I want to tell you that the encouragement from so many of you was such a blessing this week as I began to truly process this whole idea of moving. Thank you for taking the time to respond here or send an e-mail or a Facebook message or call.
The newest info to pass along is that we now know where we'll be living for the first year we're in Baltimore. We'll be renting a 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment in an area called Fells Point which is in a restored part of the city on the harbor. After discovering that there was a reduced rate move-in special going on, that we'd be within walking distance of anything we would need, that the apartment had a partial view of the water from the living room window, and most importantly that it was only a little over 3 miles from Hamp's work, we decided to take it. We also get free parking in an actual lot for our cars and if you know anything about the north, that's probably the greatest luxury! For those of you who come visit us to watch the Orioles play baseball next season, there is a water taxi that goes across the harbor from the complex and drops you off at Camden Yards. There will be a lot of fun things to discover and we're counting on you to help us do that. Have a great weekend and thanks again for your encouragment!
