When you’ve been maintaining on Instagram, it’s been a few chaotic months! Just a few weeks in the past, my husband and I moved to Boston from Columbia, SC, saying goodbye to the place we’ve referred to as residence for over 10 years. We’ve been eager to dwell within the northeast for fairly a while now, so when Scott’s firm introduced the chance for us to maneuver and be nearer to his purchasers, we jumped on it. Nonetheless, it was extremely laborious to say goodbye to a group we felt so related to, buddies who’ve turn out to be household, and to our precise household in Columbia, however we knew it was time for a brand new journey. We hope to seek out the identical form of relationships in our new metropolis, and so grateful to have already got household and fairly just a few buddies already right here!
It’s solely been just a few weeks, however up to now we’re loving our new metropolis! We really feel extremely fortunate that on this bonkers housing market, we discovered a house we love – an 1890 Queen Anne Victorian with simply sufficient tasks and updating to be enjoyable somewhat than overwhelming. Though I’ll say, the present kitchen scenario is…not nice! And since lumber costs are so excessive proper now, I’m going to need to make due with a 40 yr previous oven and a fridge that’s within the mudroom in the interim!
One of many issues we’re loving most about Boston is our new neighborhood, an space newly designated as Boston’s Little Saigon. There’s not less than 30 completely different Vietnamese eating places inside strolling distance, and we’ve made it our mission to strive a pair new ones each week. When Scott and I went to Vietnam in 2015, we fell in love with the delicacies, with its contemporary herbs, pungent candy and bitter dipping sauces, and ALL the noodles. A few of the highlights up to now have been salt and pepper fried softshell crab, served with rice paper rolls, veggies and herbs for making little rolls, fried tofu pores and skin, and our new favourite lunch spot with the very best banh mi sandwiches and a smoothie bar for contemporary ardour fruit smoothies!
