Rebecca The Red is Moving!

27 Jul

Hello my wonderful and lovely readers! I’ve got a couple of things to cover:

First, happiest Friday to you! What are your plans this weekend? I’ll be shooting at the WOD Gear Team Series in Southern California tomorrow at The Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA. If you’re local (or visiting), come out and watch – it’s free for spectators! Plus there will be some SoCal favorites out there competing (in case you missed the CrossFit Games): Katie Hogan, Becca Voigt, Kristan Clever, Andrea Ager and so much more awesome! As always, if you’re there,  I would love to meet you!

Also, I will no longer be posting from WordPress anymore. I bought www.RebeccaTheRed.com, and as of yesterday (with the help from a friend on the east coast), all Rebecca The Red posts were transferred to that site, so when I post (new content) on my domain name, it will not show up here anymore (despite your subscription). I’m trying to figure out the subscription plugin for the new domain name, so sit tight.

So what does this mean (in the meantime)? Well, it means that if you want to keep viewing photos & reading content from Rebecca The Red, you’ll have to update your bookmark from http://rebeccathered.wordpress.com to www.RebeccaTheRed.com. Also, I have a Facebook Page where my posts will still go to, so that’s another way to access content. Either way, I want to say thank you for following! I have some great new posts in the works for the new site that I cannot wait to share with you all, and of course keep an eye out for the photos from this weekend that I will post next week! Until then.

My Life In Boxes

19 Sep

It’s amazing how tedious and seemingly complex unpacking feels. I really thought I was better at it, but as it turns out, I’m not. I might even go as far as to say I’m the worst mover ever. The idea of tackling 40+ unopened boxes and finding a place for each and every little thing not only makes me nauseous but quite frankly, embarrassed. In a time where there is an evolved collective consciousness about taking up space (with possessions or population, or both), I truly feel we own too much “stuff” and moving to a new place only puts a bigger spotlight on that.

The worst part (and the sole reason for embarrassment) is that we lived abroad for a year, so we’re  literal ambassadors for condensed living and yet here we are 2 1/2 years later with a living room filled with boxed belongings and I can’t even recall how we came into half of it.

This past weekend was the third weekend we spent chipping away at the mess and I’d be lying if I said we finished. The good news is that we’ve catalogued about 14 boxes of books and since I bought Erik a Kindle for his birthday, we can sell / donate most of those, which frees up a lot of space in our little 600 square foot flat. I’ve also sold / donated a ton of our clothing and we bought a desk which allows us to unpack all of Erik’s office boxes.

I hope this is over by next weekend. I know we’re busy bees, but a month seems like a silly amount of time for unpacking and organizing your things.

This Weekend: Moving
