It’s beginning to sink in. You know that holy shit feeling. The one that overcomes you when a big life event is looming as the big date draws near. Yea that.
Late last Spring, my husband and I put a deposit down on a new build. We’re having our new home built from the ground up. It’s been a very exciting time in our lives. A time that has also brought with it some undue stress, but we’ve been rolling with the punches. Taking each day as it comes. Remembering to breath. I still can’t believe we’re doing this. Wow.
At the time of our down payment we had 14 months until closing. It felt like a long time. An eternity to be exact. Who am I kidding?! It was far from it. Days crept by and quickly months began to fly. Time has past and now we find ourselves hustling.
Painting. Cleaning. Purging. Don’t even get me started on purging. Today we filled a U-Haul truck full to the brim of junk that we had accumulated over our 5 years of marriage. How the hell does one accumulate so much crap? Hoarder much. It felt so freeing to rid of it all. My house feels some what naked now. I love it.
It’s hard to believe in a few short months, I’ll be moving out of my first home. A home I brought my first child home to. A home where I birthed my second child. We have so many beautiful memories here.
While it will be hard to move, I’m super excited about embarking on this new chapter in our lives. In our new home; our own home. One that has never been lived in before. One where can build on more memories. Our forever home.
