Mixed Emotions

Tomorrow is our big moving day, unlike all my previous moves where I had to bribe friends and family with beer and pizza to help, we decided to bite the bullet and hire movers. We just have too much stuff to move it all on our own and now seeing the weather forecast of rain and wind I'm glad we did.

We have 95% of the condo boxed up and plan to do the rest tonight/early tomorrow morning. Our condo looks like a disaster right now and the mess and disorganization gives me anxiety so I will be happy to finally get everything moved over this weekend.

Despite my overwhelming excitement over our new home and being a first time homebuyer there are moments when I get a bit sad and misty over leaving our condo. This was after all the first place we lived together, the place where Kristian proposed and where we came home after being newly married.

I still remember the first time I came to the condo after we started dating and being impressed by how clean and nicely decorated it was for a bachelor pad. I remember bringing my cat Halpert over to the condo with me to spend the weekends and how excited he would get everytime I would get his carrier out because that meant he was going to "Disneyland" (he would run excitedly around the condo like a little kid at Disneyland because it was so much bigger than my place). I think Halpert knew before I did that would be our future home.

In the past 2 1/2 years we've made a lot of great memories in our little condo and it is hard for me to leave but I know we have so many more new and exciting adventures in store for us at our new home and I'm looking forward to that.

I can see why you have mixed emotions about it, and I know that's how I'll feel when it's someday time to leave our apartment, where we've been through so much together. But onward and upward, right? Good luck with the move!

Super cute post! Yey for moving today! I hope you have a nice moving day and that the weather cooperates for you! Change is good, and while it's sad to leave your condo that holds so many special memories for you, you'll make many more in your new home! :) I'm so happy for you!!!

We're moving in our new house this weekend too! How funny we're going through this home buying/new homeowner experience at the same time! You on the other hand are much more organized! We haven't packed a thing yet and we move tomorrow! Yikes, it's going to be a busy night after work today! :)

I hope you'll post about your new home and decor! So exciting!
