Moving

We are moving!

A few weeks ago a friend texted me that she and her husband were moving elsewhere in the city and wondered if Matt and I would be interested in taking their apartment up the street from our church. We thought about it and prayed about it and went to see it, and we weighed the pros and cons of staying in our current apartment. Gradually we each swung towards wanting to move, and then we met with the landlords to go over the details, and now we are giving our notice to be out by the end of October!

Although I tend to resist change, I am really excited to live in a new space. I have been reading articles about living room layouts and researching routes for my commute to work. I’m looking to make the most of two more months with a playground right next door and good friends just a few floors down, but I’m also excited to count down the last few trips to the laundry room, long waits for the elevator, second hand smoke in the hallway, and hot nights with no air conditioning.

At this point I’m looking forward to packing, and my goal is for us to only bring the things we want to keep. Our last move included a few bags and boxes of miscellany that we didn’t particularly need or want, and our apartment is currently housing a selection of crates and shoeboxes that contain homeless items I wasn’t sure were trash. Surely two months is enough time to sift a two bedroom apartment. Right? I’m cautiously optimistic. I imagine boxes packed and stacked and labeled for where they belong, ready to make our new apartment home.

It was over five years ago that we moved into this apartment, and that move was the spark for this blog to be born. Old school, baby! I did not have any idea all the adventures and life skills we would find in this apartment, and I’m excited to discover what the new place has for us.
