i should rename the blog 'adventures in downsizing'. our big move is this week! we are reducing our living space by 1100 square feet and have been busy selling furniture and things that (thankfully) just won't fit in the new house.
people's reactions are pretty polarizing. they either respond positively with something along the lines of "oh wow, that will be so freeing" or they respond on the negative with "are you serious??" well, YES we are serious! i know this will not be without its challenges, but we are definitely up for it.
this is of course not to say we won't miss our (not so) little piece of paradise. i have moments when i want to sit down and have a really long hard cry about leaving but honestly, i just don't have time. moving 5 people is a full time job. and i have a full time job already. and did i mention school's out for summer already??
so we have 6 more days here in our 'country' abode and as we head back to civilization, i'll take lots of pictures of the new space once its up and running. i'm truly thrilled about our new neighborhood and the people we are going to be living life with at our new address.
