move it or lose it

This is me a few weeks ago. 

This is me now.

This is us. 

 Don't you love how dark our living room is? We're down to the last brave little light bulb still kickin' and it's gonna stay that way. There's only a few more days left in this joint. 

Moving is kinda the worst. Especially that week or so when you have no other choice but to live with half your house "naked" (as Chas says) and the other half in total shambles. Stuff. is. everywhere. Last night I did some deep breathing exercises and mantra meditation while Chas tickled my back. It helped.

 But actually, I really do love the invigorating change of a move and haven't lived in one place for longer than a year. I moved into this apartment on December 8th of last year so by the time we're officially out on Saturday, I'll have been in here for a grand total of 369 days. 

This little place has been good to us. It was our first home together. We're finding that Chas is surprisingly attached to this apartment and very sentimental about the whole situation. He's a gentle giant, that one.

On the other hand, this is me: "Psshh yeah, yeah, yeah.... Next?" I guess that's what happens when you've lost count of how many times you've moved in your life.

i just wanted to tell you that i bought one of your prints at last week's beehive bazaar. the one i chose was "you are my love language". i'm giving it to my fiance for christmas, we have had many laughs/discussions about that book. i absolutely had to get the print too when i saw the paper airplane on it! my fiance is going to be a pilot in the air force so i am attracted to all things aeronautical.

thanks for sharing your beautiful talent! and good luck with the move.

Even tho I've moved a lot in the past few years, I still get SUPER sentimental. If I ever see a photo album or box of pictures while moving, you better believe I will be distracted for hours and will probably cry. Good luck with the move!
