rent

prep: our house <3

i’ve been thinking a lot about this post.  how to describe the whirlwind of downsizing, sorting, packing, moving, and overall readying our house for tenants…  i think i’m just gonna keep it short and sweet.  if i’ve learned anything from obsessively reading cruising blogs it’s that the highs are high and the lows are low.  in other words, i’m signing up to live in a world of extremes.  yesterday and the days preceding were low-low.  we were stressed and on top of that, highly emotional because we LOVE our little house.  the memories and the things we learned in that house are indescribable, so i won’t try.  without it, we would not have gotten to where we are today, but that’s how life works right?

i also thought it would be great (for me :) to do a picture post about our house, but i figured i would get lost, for hours, and cry until i ran out of tears.  now that’s just counter productive, isn’t it?  so, here are just a few from last week…  if you have a memory from our house, it would make my day if you’d leave it in the form of a comment below.  even if it’s something simple like, “your bathroom was always under construction.”  thanks <3

it was a very rainy moving day...  but this tiny truck did the job.
