One Week.

Monday, June 18, 2012

In One week from today Joel and I will be packing up our first home and moving to a bigger and better place! We are so very excited for this next chapter, we can hardly stand it. We find ourselves dancing with Rayne and telling her how great her yard will be and how she will be able to run wild free. Joel even mentioned how this is the house we will probably raise a family, and that to me just melts my heart.

Our new house is very cute and reminds me of a beach cottage. It really is just perfect for us. We couldn't be more thrilled to move to a family friendly neighborhood with cupcake, ice cream, vintage, and food shops just a few blocks away. A couple of our friends live just blocks away too, so we can't wait to have BBQ's with them!

We aren't even sad about leaving our apartment, we are just looking forward to all of the benefits of this new place. It's one of those things where we'll move on and never look back. I do plan to keep the key and turn it into a Christmas ornament to put on our tree each year. I definitely want a reminder of our first home because it's where we shared our first year of marriage. We made many memories there and will not forget them. Some that I blogged about are:
  • When Rayne chewed through the carpet and carpet padding
  • Sleeping on the couch for a week after our apartment flooded 
  • Disturbing our neighbors on accident at 3am. 
  • Accidentally blowing a fuse on our oven. 
                         And so many more! 

Here's some of our progress we've made thus far! I cannot believe how bare it all looks now. 


Plans are almost finalized with our move, but please keep us in your prayers today that we get some good news we are waiting for. Things will be 10x smoother once some things get settled. So we are still accepting those well wishes :)

Thanks y'all !

  15. Your place is so cute! I am sure the new one will be even better :) I am incredibly happy for you, yet I am incredibly jealous. Places with yards don't come easily in my neck of the woods-- unless you have about $900,000 plus (no joke). ENJOY IT!
