Wrapping Up My Cross Country Move with U-Pack

What's the hardest thing about moving across the country? Besides figuring out how to keep your plants alive and remembering where you packed the bottle opener (keep it in your purse – you'll thank me later).

Some might say that packing sends them into a frenzy, or maybe it's figuring out the logistics – apartment hunting from 2,000 miles away is kind of a pain. But for me, the hardest part is always the first step: getting quotes from movers.

My U-Pack Moving Road Trip - Part 2

December 27th, 2011 - 5:04 PM

I have officially been living in Chicago for two weeks. A few U-Pack boxes still decorate my apartment, but for the most part I'm settled and adjusting to the winter weather.

The drive out to California was a bit of a whirlwind - we drove straight through without stopping - but this time we made sure to stop. The convenience of not traveling with a truck-load of stuff provided me and my mom with the freedom to take the scenic route and stop whenever (and wherever) our hearts desired.

Cities with Impressive Holiday Displays

December 14th, 2011 - 11:07 AM
I love the holiday season. There's just something that feels magical about this time of year— the parades, festivals, parties and twinkling holiday lights all around town. Who doesn't love that! I may be the only one who didn't realize this, but did you know there are only 11 days until Christmas?! That means, if you haven't been out to enjoy the holiday festivities and lights in your area, now's the time!
