Whew. My life has done a 180 in the last few weeks. And I really think it's ALL for the better. It's a great feeling to be honest.
We closed on our house with no problems the end of January. The day before we moved a blizzard hit Denver. Yep, we do have great timing! The move had to go on though, we had to hand over posession of a house that was no longer ours! It's really weird to think about that.
So bright and early (actually cloudy and snowy) one Saturday morning we picked up our GIANT moving truck. Good thing we went with the 24 footer. We have a lot of stuff and we even sold a lot of it before the move! We had all the boxes and small items already in the 3rd car garage to be moved directly into the truck. Last minute items and big furniture was all that was left in the house. It went smoothly.
By 11 we were done loading. My Mom offered to stay behind and help me clean. The house felt so big and so empty. I didn't feel one twinge of sadness though. I even told my Mom "I feel like I should be sad, maybe I should try to cry?"
But a new adventure awaits! We pulled away from the house for the last time. I drove to the new house where even more friends and family were there helping us unload. After they shoveled 2 feet of snow out of our driveway the move-in was ON! We got it done so quickly and it went really well.
We are adjusting to our new digs. Moving from a 4 bedroom, 4 bath, 3 car garage house built in 2003 to a TINY 2 bedroom, 1 bath with a 1/2 car garage built in 1924 has been crazy. I will update more later, hopefully with pictures and details on the new place.
I'm trying to figure out what to do with the ol' blog. I'm really not an IF girl anymore. Well I am, but I don't feel like one. I feel more like a childless couple excited to live our life and take on lots of adventures! It's so weird but I'm in such a good place in regard to that. I'm honestly happy. Maybe I could turn it into our adventure blog - in Colorado, travels, friends, family... I'll have to think about it. I know I haven't written much in the last 6 months so if anyone is still reading let me know what you think!
