Packing and Moving



Well, I am one week away from moving.  That explains the lack of posts last week, sorry!  I am trying to finish up the last remaining items that need to be packed.  We officially pack up the trucks on Memorial Day and drive up the following day.

It is very bittersweet to leave Georgia.  This has been our home for the last 8 years.  We've made fabulous friends here.  Our church family has been our adopted family and a huge asset. All will be greatly missed.   This is where all three of our children were born and where we truly became a family. I am trying to take each day, one day at a time or I might have a complete and total breakdown.

We are excited about this new phase in our life.  Moving to Ohio will be a big change but we will also be an hour away from our family.  I know they are incredibly excited.  Thankfully, we are moving in the summer so that we can slowly adjust to having a winter again.  I know our kids want snow this winter, I am just hoping for small amounts.

I feel sorry for anyone who has to move regularly, especially our military.  Packing and moving is by far one of the most stressful things in life!  This too shall pass!  I look forward to the unpacking phase as I will have help!  It will be nice to get settled and enjoy the summer as a family.

I will keep you updated on the progress of our move, until then I will share a few crafts that I have been working on over the last couple of months.

  1. I know how you feel hun! In July I am planning on moving back to Michigan after 8 and a half years in Tennessee. My 2 youngest kids were born and raised in the south so a "real" winter will be new to them.

    1. Criossa-I am sure your kids will love the snow. My kids are very excited. I am praying for a light winter to ease us back into it! Best of luck with your move! ~Jill

  2. I totally understand what you're going through. My husband is in the military and we're making a really big move this summer from Germany to Georgia. We've been lucky to be able to stay here for 6 years, my little one was even born overseas. Not having a winter is going to be a big change for us....since we receive plenty of snow here :).

    1. MKubicz-Oh you have a huge move! I feel for you. I've heard that those of you in the military are professionals at moving though. You probably don't have near the amount of junk that we do! I wish you the best of luck in your major move. Once you get settled in Georgia, email me. I would love to share with you all the fun things to do there! ~jill
