Once upon a time...

...we moved into our house. It was a magical day. I was so excited to finally be in our own place. No one was going to live above us anymore! We started packing the truck at nine o'clock and had it completely empty by one. We have amazing friends and family and there were at least 15 people there to help us out. Everything went as smooth as it possibly could. Thank you everyone who showed up that day. You saved us!


These little guys came too.


We completely filled the biggest truck U Haul had. It's amazing how much crap you accumulate over just a few years.

After the truck was emptied into our new house we celebrated with pizza on the front porch.

This is what every room in our house looked like after the big move.

Yep, we even had a stove in our living room, for about a week. We didn't have any floors so nothing was in its right place.

Oh, I am so jealous. Not of the moving part. Ugh. But moving into your first house and making it your own. So fun!

I'm going back in time because we didn't have internet for forever so I didn't post any of these things.

I am dreading our move this fall...that truck made my stomach turn, I wonder if that is the size we will have to use too! Glad it's over for you! I bet it feels great to have things in order again.
