We’re moving, y’all. And not only are we moving…we’re downsizing. I really, really think this is going to be so good and I’m really, really hoping we’re not crazy for this. lol Our house now is 3900 sq. ft. and the house we’re moving to is only 2100 sq. ft. You know what that means, right? Time to get rid of junk! We’ve somehow accumulated so much stuff. It’s weighing us down, both physically and mentally. I can’t wait to go through and donate tons and tons of stuff. My poor family…I might go minimalist mom on them. I mean, seriously…does my eight year old really need 72 Beanie Boos for her “collection?” She doesn’t even play with the darn things!
Later, when I have more time and more mental energy, I’ll write about this house that we’re selling. It’s big and beautiful and I won’t be sad at all to leave it. The two years that we’ve lived here have been so very hard. They’ve been trying and they’ve taken their toll on my family and to be honest, I’m ready for a fresh start. A new place to make new memories. A new beginning. I know that a new house won’t make all the bad things disappear, but I’m hoping it helps with attitudes. You know how a bright, sunny day and a cool, crisp breeze can put a big smile on your face and re-energize you? That’s what I’m hoping this new place is for us.
