We closed on our house yesterday! Today I resumed packing some more since I'm carless today and have plenty of time to devote to the task. I don't enjoy the clutter that inevitably accompanies packing up EVERYTHING you own, but I have to admit: 

I love the process of sorting, 
choosing what to keep and what to donate,
fitting everything like puzzles in boxes with 'like' contents,
 and watching these stacks and stacks
and even more endless stacks of boxes piling up. 

Something about it just soothes the lil ocd voice in me. Anyone else feel the same way? kinda funny that this would be kind of therapeutic. It has been a HUGE blessing to take our time this way since we are just moving across town rather than across the country. 

Only a few more days and we'll start taking them to OUR new home! Looking something like this:
lol, j/k. We're borrowing our realtor's moving truck. Free, just pay gas. Couldn't ask for a better deal. :)


  1. I have never thought of packing as therapeutic but I'm glad somebody enjoys it! I do periodically go through our belongings and find joy in purging things we don't need and either throwing them out or donating them, so I can see where you're coming from, but I would definitely rather be unpacking and giving everything a place or having to pack everything up and decide what to keep out. Good luck with the process and congrats on YOUR home!

  2. I meant to say I prefer unpacking to packing; hopefully that was clear with my typos.

  3. Good luck with the packing! I'm so excited for you guys to have your own home, can't wait to see it.

  4. good luck!!!!! so excited for you guys!!!

  5. Ugh. I could really use some of that packing mojo over here. We are starting to count down the days until our move and I still have TONS to do. How awesome that you are able to borrow a truck! Hope the move goes smoothly. And Congrats on the house!

  6. We are so exited for you and can't wait to see it.

  7. Okay I am really needing an Elisa update. I know you are crazy busy, and I am definitely not one to talk since I haven't updated my blog in a bit, but I miss you so much and hope all is well with your new house and getting settled! Love and miss you!!
