There’s been a whole lot of Italy happening on the blog lately, so I thought I would mix things up by sharing some current (and random) tidbits via a Three Things Thursday post.One – Apartment hunting in St. Petersburg
Vishnu and I are driving up to St. Pete to do a little apartment hunting this weekend. We’ve narrowed down our list of potential homes to four apartment complexes, and we’re crossing our fingers that at least one of them pans out for us. And even though I’m dreading the actual move, I’m kind of excited about living in a new city for a year. Vishnu, on the other hand, is a little nervous. But that probably has more to do with the fact that in about two months’ time he’ll be starting the next big chapter in his life…as a doctor!
Two – Voluspa candle
My colleague and friend Thea gifted me a beautiful Voluspa candle for my birthday, and after using it as a decorative piece for the last four months, I finally used it for its intended purpose last night. Thea gave me the apricot and aprilia candle, and it smells heavenly. I think I’m going to make post-dinner candle lighting a thing now. It’s such a relaxing way to end the day!
Three – A Minted winner!
I’m excited to announce that Rachel is the winner of my Minted giveaway! Rachel, please email me at email@example.com for all the details.
And a big thanks to Minted for helping me host this giveaway!
Well, that’s all I have for this week’s Three Things Thursday. Check in tomorrow for my final Italy recap post about Florence!

I love apartment hunting! That might be kind of weird though, haha. I hope you find a great one. Looks like a beautiful place.

Honestly, I do too! While a part of me really wishes we didn’t have to move for just a year, another part of me is kind of excited to be in a new area and apartment.
Oh, the joy of hunting for that perfect roof to put over your head…. I remember when we first moved to Dallas and I can’t even tell you how many apartments we looked at. I think going in with your must have versus your wish list helps to narrow done the options. I hope you find the perfect apartment for your next chapter together in a new city! 🙂

I absolutely love Voluspa candles, they are a little bit of a splurge but totally worth it! I keep one on my desk and light it whenever I start a writing project – it’s a little ritual for me now.

I received the same Voluspa candle but haven’t lit it yet. Good to know that it’s worth lighting!
And apartment hunting…the bane of my existence. I fear we might be on the hunt yet again…

We did the move to Winnipeg, when my hubby did his residency so I can understand the feeling. But I’ sure it’ll be such a wonderful experience! I do love scented candles too, even though I’ve never heard of Voluspa. I’ll have to check them out. Happy to have you linking up to #3ThingsThursday. I’m going to have to catch up on your Italy/Florence posts!

I love those candles from Voluspa! Have you tried any other scents, Parita?
