For the LOVE of Boxes!

Tomorrow is the big day. It’s the day that we load the moving truck!

Believe it or not, I’m ready.

I’ve been living with this……


and this….


and these…


AND these….


and plenty more that are not pictured, for waaayyyy to long now.

(Are you as sick of looking at boxes as I am of living with them? LOL!)

As sad as it is to leave a house that has 12 years of memories in it, it’s exciting to look forward to making new ones in a new home. We will take the old memories with us and hold them forever in our hearts.

Good bye little yellow house! You’ve been good to us! But it’s time now to


I’m not sure how long the transition between here and there is going to take (for the internet at least because that’s all I’m really worried about right now. Who cares that one bedroom is painted an ugly orange, I need internet hooked up PRONTO!) but if you don’t hear from me for a few days I’m sure you’ll know from this post, what I’m doing.

Pray that everything (like the internet switcharoo) goes off without a hitch!

Love you my sweet friends!!!

    Will be praying for you!!

  6. All the best with your move!

    I recall after moving several years ago..that I would be very happy if I didn't have to see another box for a loooong time! LOL!

  7. Wow girly you have been busy. Hope that the move goes great and that you settle in quickly. I am ready to move on as well...just need someone to buy my house :)

Pretend like I'm there lifting that box next to you, or that I'm getting in the way and asking if it's time to take a Starbucks break yet. :)

    Love you!!! Giant HUGS!
