The past few days have been crazy busy, but in such a great and exciting way!
In addition to work, I’ve been trying to catch up on some of the side projects I put on hold while Jenny was here. On top of that, Melvin and I have been planning and prepping for our big move this weekend!!!
I can’t even begin to describe how excited we are to have a place to make our home. To give you all some context, we've been living with Melvin's parents who very generously invited me to live with them almost 3 years ago. Now, while it has been a huge blessing for us to live there, we wanted to take the leap and find a place of our own. Hence, "a place to make our home.”
Anyway, I’ve been completely nerding out about having our own place. I drew up our floor plan based on photos I took when we originally toured the unit and sketched out ideas for where we can place things. It’s a little tough considering we don’t really have any furniture that we can account for, but I still find it really fun working with this new blank canvas... especially since I've been able to collect some awesome home décor pieces over the past few years that I haven’t been able to put on display.
Though the bulk of our move will be this weekend, we were able to move in a few things last night. (We got to use our keys for the first time! Weee!) Since we don’t have a specific order in which to move things, we started off simple with cleaning supplies and smaller items that we don’t need with us at the house right now.
Not going to lie, I'm a little intimidated by everything we need to do this weekend, so if anyone has any tips and tricks for moving, please share! We're newbies to this whole moving thing so any advice would help!
To living on the bright side,
