The happiest of moves

We are in. We are done done done with one-bedroom apartments. We have been in this house for less than 72 hours and I am already amazed at how we had this fit into such a small space for so long. I'm just...breathing easier because we are not so cramped. Moving is exhausting, and messy, and stressful, but at the end of the day, we're just so happy with where we are now.

Without further ado, our move, according to my iPhone.

First picture in the house!
Why yes, we do have a white picket fence.
Of course books are unpacked. Priorities, people.
After we turned in our apartment keys!
Ben gave me this rose and said, "happy new home babe!" (This guy, he's a keeper).
Unpacking...
More unpacking...
Happy, but tired.
We actually made a lot of progress this weekend - all of the rooms are unpacked at least 60% (or more!), and we even have some things hung on the walls.

There was a 24-hour period where we didn't have internet or cell phone service, but I've since blocked that out, because let's focus on the happy, right?

Bear with me as we're still getting unpacked - I'll try to pop in every few days or so to check in.

How was your weekend?

Yea! I am so glad that you are in your new space! Having more space is LIFE CHANGING. I felt that way when I moved from 690 sq ft to 1140. And then had the reverse experience moving to Charlotte when I went back to 700 sq ft... but now I have 860 so once again feel like I have so much more space (and way more closets which is amazing). Your new space looks great and I am impressed that you already have things hung on the wall! Way to go! It will feel so good to be 100% unpacked and settled but it sounds like you've made great progress towards that!

My weekend was really fun. I spent a lot of it preparing for my party on Saturday night but all of the hard work was worth it as we had so much fun and I got a lot of compliments on the food. On Friday I got my to do list done in time to grill out with Phil and have a relaxing evening so that was nice. It was our first time grilling this summer, which is crazy since it's late July! I envision more Friday night grilling nights in our future!

I’ve been in my apartment for almost two years and I still don’t have stuff on the walls. You are like, way, way ahead of me. Way, way. Ha! Next time I move, can you come with me?! You are a zillion times more efficient!

So happy everything went smoothly! You have a white picket fence! That is too cute. :)

YAY! Um, I've been in my house since 2006 and there still isn't much on the walls and we have a room in the basement that still has boxes. hahaha

It's so exciting to move, especially when more space is on the other side. Congrats!
