Just over one month into our life in Newberry, SC and I am still finding my way. I feel like at this point I need to re-read Eat Pray Love (*affiliate link) or a bookcase full of finding yourself type books. I’m still searching to find “normal.”
Finding my way
Most mornings start with a French press full of Java Momma coffee and breakfast with Wilhelmina. She has become quite the helper in the kitchen and loves to make her breakfast.
She and I try to go out every other day for a jog around town. It is something to help with my sanity and fills some of the time each day. Should I mention Newberry isn’t very flat and that pushing a toddler and jogging stroller is hard work? I love our Joovy 360 Ultralight Jogging Stroller* but up a hill even without the cute toddler is hard! Ha!
Filling up the rest of the day
Out and about
After coffee and breakfast, we need something else for filling up the rest of the day. So far we have explored EdVenture, the Riverbanks Zoo & Garden, and made many trips to the Harbison Blvd for shopping essentials such as Costco and Target.
We have also made the local branch of the Newberry County Library System a frequent haunt. We miss our favorite librarian from the Maricopa system and all our library buddies from Goodyear, but we are both working hard to make new friends.
During the first couple of weeks, I spent more than my fair share at the local SC Department of Motor Vehicles. I am more than happy to answer any questions about getting a driver’s license, registering to vote, or getting a tag/title/registration for a car. Just drop me a line. Oh, and just a heads up: the first time you register a car in South Carolina you must pay $250 to the state for infrastructure improvement. I think I might need to sell some more LuLaRoe to pay for that…
Oh, and I got my first haircut in over two years. A shout-out to Amber at Illusions Hair Studio!
More adventures to come as we both are finding our way in our new “normal” and life in South Carolina. Plus, it’s festival season, y’all! Be sure to sign up for the latest posts and follow our adventures on Instagram!
