Guess what y’all?! We just found out that the offer that we accepted on our house back before Christmas went through!!! Our closing date is the 14th…yes, that’s eight days away. And we’re moving to the casa on Saturday…three days from now! We are insane.

Oh MY WORD! I’m excited and sad at the same time. Change isn’t easy, is it?

We are furiously working to pack and prepare the casa for an onslaught of boxes, belongings, bedlam and a two-year old. Ha!

We made some amazing memories at this house. We brought Ridley home from the hospital to this house. He’s spent his first two years of life in this house. When we drive up he says, “haoooooomme” in the sweetest little Southern voice.  I cried when I went in the nursery to take down his pictures.

I’m going to miss my wonderful whirlpool tub. I’m going to miss the awesome striped nursery wall that I painted while 8 months preggo with Ridley. I will miss the beautiful fireplace, wide hand-scraped hardwood floors, smooth sheetrock, the dishwasher and loads of kitchen cabinet and countertop space.

But I’m carrying home with me. I’m taking my precious family.

And I have my memories…so many wonderful memories.

Umkay, enough with being sentimental! I’m excited to get moved into the casa and get set to beautifying it!

I’ll be back here next week, but in the meantime, keep up with updates on Facebook and Twitter!


  1. Having just moved, I completely understand that bittersweet feeling of leaving a place where you’ve made so many precious memories! I actually posted about that very thing the day we moved out. You are so right – you are taking home with you in the form of your sweet family. Congratulations!

  2. Oh wow you have a lot on your plate! We are thinking we’ll be moving this May..around the time I’m 8 months pregnant with baby # 4 and three small children! It doesn’t seem like moving can every be easy does it? Good luck this week!!

  3. I just moved out of a place we’ve lived in for 16 years. I know how overwhelming a task it is. Praying all goes smoothly. Can’t wait to hear more about your new home.
