How scary are these two? ;)
Hope you all have a safe and happy night of it!
(Our last morning in the rented house).
I counted up this morning, and this will be the 8th time that Jose and I have moved since we were married (almost) four years ago. That includes all the hotels and company apartments we’ve stayed in… but since we lived in each of those places for more than a month (with our two crazy dogs!), then I’ll count them on the list.
Needless to say, it makes me so happy that we are finally moving into a place that’s more permanent. I don’t know if I could handle more moving boxes next year. The whole process is just exhausting, physically and emotionally. I’ll be so happy in a couple of months when we’re settled and we can enjoy our home for (hopefully!) several years to come.

With only two weeks left until the big move, I spent this past weekend going through closets and drawers to get rid of any clutter that I don’t want to take into our new house.
Just these past couple of years, I’ve really felt the urge to simplify things in life. Learning to sew has helped me streamline my closet and my style, and it’s something that has rubbed off on other areas of my life.
The house we’re moving to is pretty small, by today’s standards (well – in the United States, at least), but I’m secretly grateful that we don’t have a huge house to clutter up with more stuff. A small space will force us to be selective about what we bring into our home. It’s really a good feeling to get rid of all the things that weigh us down.
Here’s to a fresh start!!! :)
P.S. So sorry for the lack of posts lately! Once we’re settled into the new house, I should be back to regular updates here on my blog. ;)
