Moving on

We have an announcement to make...

Dun dun dun duuunn!

We're moving.

No seriously though... that's my announcement.

Are you surprised? Because I sure am!
Mostly because it is 100%, completely and utterly out of the blue.

It went from "oh hey, let's go check out this complex"
to "okay, so like where am I going to put all my shoes?" 
and "hey, the future dog can sleep there!"

Things have weirdly fallen into place, and since it is in true Jake Mulford family fashion to just up and move with no forethought

--Need I remind you of the time when we found our first apartment just four (FOUR) days before we were married, or how the last time we moved, we decided to start looking and were in our current apartment within a week--

  we figured... why not?

But as the decision is starting to sink in, I'm beginning to realize... 
you never know what you've got until it's gone. 

I'll miss the way our sink has to be turned to the right for hot instead of cold, and how our light switches are upside down, and how the drawers in the fridge have to be propped up just right in order for everything not to come tumbling down.

But I don't think the AC, the dishwasher, the washer/dryer hook-ups, the back porch and the garage (which means no window scraping in the depths of Logan's snow) will have much of a problem winning me over pretty quick.

Not to mention the fact that I won't have to worry about ants crawling into my kitchen sink anymore.
Yeah. I really don't think I will miss that.
Okay, maybe a little.
Wait for it... 
nope.

I guess what I'm trying to say is, I'll miss our current home, but I'm excited to make new memories as we move on to this next little adventure in our lives.



Now...

Does anyone have a spare cardboard box? Or 5...

You're moving!!! That's so awesome! I got all my boxes from firehouse when we moved. I would say almost every restaurant will have boxes galore that they take to the dumpster every night.

Steph! That is the cutest little place! How exciting for you! I know what you mean though. No matter how crazy it drives you at the moment, there is always something sentimental about young and poor experiences. I just know I'm going to miss it.....Assuming I'm not always going to be young and poor. Haha.

I think I recognize that complex. Is it right behind Walmart? Have fun moving and if you need boxes, ask a bookstore, pharmacy or, if you dare :-), a liquor store, for boxes.

Good for you guys for moving on to bigger and better things! Me and Mike will go look at apartments but then we just don't want to leave ours. Haha we've been there for almost 3 years, the whole time we've been married! Craziness... Who knows if we will ever leave... Good luck in your new place with its new adventures! Love ya tons!

Is this picture a pic of your old place or your new one? Can't wait to see more pictures as you get settled. Good luck!
