I’m beyond excited to announce that my sister, who runs this amazing Etsy store, that I talk about a lot, is moving to Austin! My three nieces, adorable nephew, awesome brother in law and SISTER will live just 30 minutes north of us now! Basically you can expect a lot more heart stopping photos like these in the near future.
I’m so grateful for a husband who loves these babies as much as I do. I can’t wait to see them grown up and become even more awesome.
We woke up this morning in a best western hotel, which was shockingly nice. Went to the bank for a new money order and to attempt to sort out some drama that came along with trying to send our last money order through the United States postal service (never use them if you can avoid it). Then, finally, we went to our new home, signed our lease and got the keys!
Now comes the hard part. Unpacking the u-haul beast. Ugh. Pray for us. Here are some pics of the empty apartment.
There comes a point in your life, and I hope this happens to everyone, when you look at what you’ve accomplished, what you’ve spent your time doing and the possessions you’ve gathered since you started your life as a full time adult; mainly, since college. When you really take stock.
I love what I’ve accomplished, I love that 6 months out of college I got a job I really wasn’t qualified for at an incredible non profit. I love that I’ve worked hard at it and now think I can comfortably say that I’m pretty darn good at it. I love that I went somewhere I knew no one and made friends, found a church home, found my amazing Josh and eventually listened to him when he told me that we would be really good at loving each other (because we really are). I’m proud that after a little (read: a colossal amount) of help from my parents I took up life as an adult pretty easily. I have a few apartments under my belt and I’m proud that Josh and I have managed to furnish our apartment in a way that represents us both and makes it feel like home. I thank Jesus for all these things, because he made them all happen, no matter how hard I tried to ruin them all.
But it’s time for a change.
I find myself looking around our little home and when I used to look in appreciation at all our possessions, I just think to myself, “I don’t need any of this”. My vagabond instincts are kicking in and after nearly four years in south Florida, I’m craving change. I don’t know what that means for us, or how quickly this change will come. All I know is as long as I have Josh, I’m home, and I would love go everywhere in the world with him.
I have a feeling that my posts may become much more interesting in the near future. I hope.
