In case anyone was wondering, packing is far from FUN 😐
As excited as we are to move into our new home, it is still sad to leave all of our memories behind. For anyone who doesn’t know, the first time Shawn and I officially hung out was at his townhouse (that he bought on my 21st birthday Feb 28th 🙂 ) back in 2012. Since then we have spent many days and nights there that we wouldn’t trade for the world. It is where our love story began, so it will always hold a special place in our hearts♥
Packing however will NOT. You never realize how much stuff you have until you try to pack it all into boxes. Somehow you accumulate cups, clothes, shoes, movies, and knick knacks that you never even knew you had – until now. Or you end up finding that thing you had been searching for, for months.
I did find some easy ways to pack up my clothes, which helped a lot. All I did was group a bunch of clothes together, such as long dresses, then short dresses, then summer tops, and skirts. Then, I cut a hole at the bottom middle of a trash bag, pulled the clothes through, and then tighten and tied the bottom of the trash bag. So simple, and it will make it 10 times easier when we go to put them away in the new house. I didn’t get to take a picture of mine, but here’s an example of a similar way to do it:
We really got a lot accomplished today, but still have a long ways to go. We are getting a Pod delivered this week, so that we can load it up and have them store it until we move into the home in early January 🙂
On a side note – I received a promotion at work, and I start TOMORROW. I am so excited for this new job, and hey a little extra money doesn’t hurt either 😉 The job itself is similar to what I do now, but with different products. I will definitely learn a lot, and it will certainly expand my horizons. God is good ! When you least expect it, he pops up and puts a new path in front of you, and this one is one I am very grateful for.
These next fews week are going to be super busy, but I will make sure that I keep up with blog posting ! I have been slacking so much lately, but I will make sure I set aside time each week to get a few posts in. I cannot believe the holidays are almost here, have any of y’all done Christmas shopping yet? Are you traveling for the Holidays? I would love to know what everyone is doing ! The Holidays are my favorite time of year 🙂
I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL week !
