My posts may come less frequently these next few days. We are deep in the middle of moving. This weekend, our dearest friends hosted a going away party for us and two other couples. I'll tell you all about it tomorrow. Sneak preview - it was soooo much fun that we had a hard time working up the energy to get the house ready for the packers to come!
We spent all day yesterday making donation piles, cleaning the pantry and fridge, and getting the bags we're taking with us sorted and packed. We finished around dinnertime at which point we headed to our new home, The Hampton Inn. I feel like we're on a family vacation all tucked away in our little room.
Today, the packers came and packed up all of our belongings. Here's a picture Mark took from the loft of the truckload of boxes that will be making their way to New Orleans tomorrow... Who knew two people could accumulate all of that in just four years!
I think that one of the reasons for the lack of posts these last few days is that I have been avoiding the inevitable truth that we are leaving the Lowcountry. I honestly haven't allowed myself to really take in that moving day is just four days away.
While I am excited to return home, I cannot begin to explain how sad I am to be leaving. I do, however, take great comfort in that sadness. It means that we have spent four years planting roots in a place that is truly special. The only thing that would be sadder is to not feel sad at all.
