pack out day.


Yesterday was an emotionally and physically exhausting day of getting ready for the movers to come today. I cried a bit while pulling our art off the walls as I watched our home transform into just a house. By the end of the day, my back was throbbing. Chris stayed up hours after I went to bed working on getting the house ready and he got up at 5am, before I woke up to continue the work. 

By the end of today the house will be empty and our month (or more) of temporary living begins. And so begins a new adventure!

  1. Soon enough you will make your next place a home. The transition will be different, but in the end, it's still you and Chris together. And that's really what a home is anyways. Just wait till you get that little boy in your arms, and the shell of whereever you live won't even cross your mind. Praying for a good day for y'all!

  2. Packing out sucks. I hate putting everything we own into crates and living with temporary furniture. I hope you are able to suck every bit of fun out of your last month in Hawaii as you possibly can!

  3. I'm sorry you had a rough day :( Moving is so hard. When we made our move from Florida (working at Disney World) to Seattle I was so so sad. Now I love it here so much and am so glad we did it. Soak it all in for now :) At least your moving to another nice warm place!!

  11. Aw...I remember our move when we got out of the Marine Corps. Our son was 6 months old and it was the MOST traumatic day for him (and us). Having all of those strangers in our house packing up our things was overwhelming. I was also pregnant at the time so I can understand how those pregnancy hormones magnify things even more. I remember laying on the floor in our living room balling my eyes out when everything was finally emptied out. It's OK to cry. It's OK to miss your home. It is in many ways the end of an era but I have to say that being back "home" in PA has been wonderful. And Florida is a great state to live in as well. I'm thinking of you as you transition these next few weeks. I feel such sadness for you because I know it's so hard but at the same time I am so excited to see what the Lord has in store for your sweet little family! Love from PA! XOXO
