In Which a Journey Begins
Or, what even is this site?
This is a site that’s named after a company – a vacation rental company run by both me and my best friend, Jessica – which was launched in May of 2020 essentially on a whim that was fueled by frustration with the state of our lives, internal restlessness from COVID-19 quarantining, and a desire to build something better for ourselves and our families.
For those of you who are super curious, that company was named after Ani DiFranco’s “Swan Dive,” which continues to feel like a theme song, becoming more relevant with each passing year of my life. Plus, I mean, Ani. Hello.
When we started the company, I decided to pursue my real estate license for the second time, and while waiting for my licensing classes to start, in between researching the different brokerages I could choose to hang my shingle with, I chose to start this blog to document the process, assuming my life would become infinitely more noteworthy.
And um… maybe it did.
