in which i had a huge reality-check

I spent much of last night freaking out over everything.
I was stressed about the fact that I haven't packed, well, anything yet.
I was stressed that most of my furniture hasn't sold yet.
I was stressed about the fact that my car is having all these fun issues before a 2,200 mile road trip.
I was stressed about the fact that Ryan and I are moving to a completely empty house.

But then I realized something that changed my perspective entirely.
I don't really have all that much to pack.
If my furniture doesn't sell, I might not make some money back, but those less fortunate will get it.
My car always comes through in the end.
I get to move into that big, empty, wonderful house with my husband.
There is nobody else in the world that I'd rather embark upon this crazy journey of life with.
He makes me laugh, he picks me up when I'm down and he reminds me to be strong.
Most of all though, he makes me a better person,
and we finally get to start this next chapter of our lives together in less than two weeks.
I am so, so blessed.

  3. And that's the stuff that's really worth remembering! Though I definitely know about car trouble and long car trips at the same time--that can be so frustrating!

  4. You know what moving is never easy but every time you do move you have to do what you just did, look at the positives. You just have to keep reminding yourself that it will all turn out fine in the end, it always does!

  7. I'm glad you had the realization of these things on your own, BEFORE the move. Everything will work out, and you want to remember the trip - not just the destination. You'll be fine girl, and you will love the new adventure!

  8. Oh!!! I think anyone would stress before a move across the entire country! You're doing just fine! You will love that BIG, empty house--free of clutter!

    You got this, girl!

  9. Such pretty pictures. Doing those big scary things with your husband by your side make them seem just a little bit less scary and a lot more exciting.

    Turning that big, empty house into your home with him by your side will be a wonderful experience!

  12. Having a positive outlook will make it happen! Most furniture probably sell more on the weekends. So repost everything on Friday to make sure it have visibility and then let the chips fall where they may. Like you said the most important thing is that you get to start living married life with your husband. :)

  15. That's the spirit, babe! It's a lot at once, that's for sure... but it all boils down to one simple good thing: your love for each other and starting a life together. :)
