Please proceed in an orderly fashion...

As you know, my husband and I are getting ready to move to Alabama. Since he is retiring from the Navy, they will pack and move us one last time. About two weeks before you want to leave, the moving company comes in to look at your stuff and estimate how long it will take to pack up your things. This is usually between 3 and 5 days.
She estimated 1 day. She said we really didn't have anything except our furniture because it appears we have minimal personal iteams!!
That was like music to my ears. I am the exact opposite of a hoarder. I really can't stand to keep things. I am forever purging my closet, emptying drawers, organizing the pantry and folding my hoodies so they are stacked in order from darkest to lightest.
The only things I tend to keep are pictures, personal letters and Sharpies. I have a gallon ziplock bag full of Sharpies!
My husband estimated that if we did not have our large furniture pieces, we could move our entire amount of household goods in a 6 x 12 U-Haul. We like to travel light :o)


  1. Haha! Hey just think, once you've unpacked and organized - it will all be clean. Hang in there. I love your new header by the way too. Looks great.

  2. You need to post your email address so I can comment back!! lol <3 And yes, I like that idea of the pendant!!!

  3. I like the new blog design, but I still can't read the text under your picture. It's all jumbled up :(
