As you may have heard (also on the front page of the Wausau Daily Herald, which was silly), Julie and I are closing down the bakeshop and moving about 30 miles north to Wausau. For Julie, she will be selling A Dash of Delicious treats at Downtown Grocery, and also working for them a couple of days a week. This is a great move for her, allowing her to be able to focus more on what she has found she loves to bake, and giving us a little more flexibility to travel and do the things we love to do, without worrying about the bakery building itself as much.
The past month has been a crazy flurry of answering questions, putting the building up for sale, and general stress over the normal “I have to sell a building / house” stuff that goes on.
That being said, we are both very excited and looking forward to the move. Wausau has an awesome downtown area, and we are going to be right in the middle of it. Our apartment is in the Heinemann building, between the Palladian and Washington Square. A few pictures are below. After owning and maintaining a house and building (including over a year of both at once), I’m really looking forward to not having to maintain a space. It’s a little less flexible than owning a spot, obviously, but I think the tradeoff in less stress is going to be totally worth it. If we don’t like it in a year, I’m sure there will be another post like this one detailing where we’re moving to in Wausau
Our new apartment is a two story townhome, starting on the second floor, situated over Coldwater Creek. We get access to the Jefferson Street Inn pool and fitness area, and we’re within walking distance to a bunch of different restaurants, the mall, and all the stuff at Washington Square, not to mention the 400 block.
We’re really looking forward to having all that Wausau has to offer so close. I drive up at least once or twice a week to golf, and we go out to eat and visit family a lot, so it will be nice to be much closer.
