let's move!

8:54 PM


2011.
so we just talked moving as in the blog (obviously if you're here, you found me, here at malloriecooper.com) but we are also moving in the non-blog world! it's not a big move, but i am beginning to think, it may as well be. i think the work is almost the same. really though, it's not big, we're moving like a mile away, maybe. no joke.

so the house is in disarray, there are boxes everywhere, and i mean everywhere and i've packed up all but just a few daily items and our clothing. monday is the day, but the i-couldn't-procrastinate-to-save-my-life part of me started packing on tuesday, i think. so until then, we will live in boxes.

when i first began packing it was really bittersweet. as excited as i am for our new place to call home, it's not like we had to move, we chose it, we've called this our home for the past three (amazing) years. we totally put our hearts into this little old place and some major elbow grease too (read about our move here for old times sakes). but now, as i am finishing puttying up all the little holes we put in the walls from things hung and stacking up the boxes in some attempt to be organized, it is becoming much less bitter and much more sweet. i am so thankful for this roof that has been over our head, for the memories that have been made, for this little old home with all its old home charm, being my husband and i's first house and really first project together, to bringing home our sweet babe here, for learning to garden, learning to paint, sand and scrape many years of old paint away, change fixtures and old faceplates and door knobs out, to really learning how to keep a home. we did it all here. we, as a family, have grown so much in this small space and now it is just about time to say our farewell to this little old place. i am so thankful for the memories made, the memories that we will carry with us. i also can't help to be excited for what is in store for us next (even if its just a mile away), not so much for the home (though it definitely has it's perks, like a dishwasher), but for how we will be grown in this new little place. for the memories we will make there, for the garden we will plant in what will be our first backyard, for the things to come. for the day we bring home our next sweet babe, for making what is now only a house into our home. for this new journey ahead. but we will always remember our first humble abode for simply that, our first house in which we made into a home. it's been a beautiful time here.

here is for things to come. and here is a trip down memory lane (in black and white none-the-less because it's just best that way).
