It has been awhile since I have posted due to the busyness of life, but I have officially moved to Tampa, FL. I was relocated for my job and I am happy with the results. The weather is warmer which is something I really appreciate.
The weather in South Bend gets brutal during the winter months and I will not miss them one bit. Sometimes we got as much as 3 feet of snow which is not fun by the way when you are running late to work. We also had a crazy snow storm due to a polar vortex where the weather was in the negatives. I believe it was around -30 degrees at one point during the storm.
The image above is what you can expect if you ever visit South Bend during its winters months. This goes on for about 8 months of the year as well, so prepare yourself. You will need a heavy jacket for sure.
But now I am officially here in Tampa and can enjoy the whole year without a jacket or sweaters. I took a couple photos in the downtown area. Here is one in the parking garage.
I did manage to find a nice home here in Tampa which I’m happy with. It’s about 20mins next to the beach so I can already imagine I will spend a great deal of my time by the water. If you ever want to get together and explore the Tampa with me be sure to contact me. I’m more than excited to meet some of my blog followers and find new places to eat or have fun here.
Another thing that I pleased with is that my painting company Brothers Colors Painting has a location down here as well, so I will be able to hire them again to repaint the inside of my home. I’m sure there are other painters in the area, but since they did such a wonderful job at my home I will just stick with them again. I will let you all know if they do a good job here as well. Also, be sure to check out my blog post about pricing painting jobs in the Tampa area.
Anyway, I will find a new spot down here for my woodworking. I heard from the locals there are a few different spots I should check out. I need to get back into the hobby since it was a good way for me to relax. I also want to learn how to build a concealment lampstands. I seen a couple posted on Etsy that I thought were pretty nice looking. I think it would be a good way for me to make a couple of extra bucks if I can get really good at it. Might take me some time, but I think I could eventually learn how.
Well, I guess I will try to explore this new city of mine and try to stay consistent with writing on my blog. Be sure to write to me if you live in the Tampa area and want to grab a bit to eat or show me around. Best!
