I don’t want to do this but I have to…no more posting until it’s from our new little cosy apartment. I said my first goodbyes tonight and it was harder than I thought. I cried a little, but probably could have had a full-on sob fest. Not just at saying goodbye to this friend, although that made me sad, but I’m just in need of a good, overwhelmed, we’re moving, MOVING!!– in three days, life is changing dramatically-kind of cry.
I was just thinking the other day how nice it would be if all you blogging friends were neighbors–I’d have you all over for a packing party–packing, chatting, laughing….although we probably wouldn’t get any real work done. And of course blair would be the one lounging on the sofa as we carried it to the moving truck, wine glass in her hand… 🙂
So, anyway, Maryland, here we come…Pa–I hope you’re ready for the big dose of little girly excitement and love that’s coming your way in just a few days…
I’ll still be checking my email (i can’t cut myself off completely, come on now…) so keep those little encouraging emails coming, if you have the time. They help, they really do….
I’ll leave you with a final picture I snapped of the girls tonight–they were lounging on the bed while I was packing up my closet. Dan says he’d title this one, "loved to death". Ever since Henry returned from his snip-snip at the vet, the girls have been all over him.
(oh, and after reading everyone’s comments from the last post–should I be booking the tour bus to the ribbon outlet for late spring??)
Next stop: home.

Awww, the little cuddles and legs…
AWE have so much fun on your adventure.THe girls are precious. I love that little theigh!!! Kids are so adorable!
Oh I would love a tour to a ribbon outlet.Do you my hubby would stump up the airfares and hotel bill?Good luck on the moving remember it’s the start of a great adventure!!
The last time I moved was one of the most stressful days of my life; take care of yourself and cry if you have to! It will all be over soon and then you will get to re-decorate (doesn’t that seem like fun?!) Have a safe trip!
Moving isn’t fun but settling in is… good luck with the move. 🙂
I totally encourage the gob-slobbery, wear-you-out, eyes-puffy-the-next-day kind of cry! you may not have time for it this week…but it will be soo cleansing when you finally do! I am proud of you for stepping away from blogging for a bit to get it all done…i am sure that is hard. but, this is just a season, a short time that will bring in new and exciting adventures for you and your family! remember to breath..big deep, long breathes and soon this will all be behind you!loves!!
Oh, dear. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Moving can be a very emotional thing. And don’t worry, I’ll be anxiously waiting your return. I’ve only just found your blog but it’s so nice I’ve decided to stay for a while 🙂
As I’ve said before, I’d loved to have helped you pack, especially the crafty bits. Sometimes I dream about having a Crafty Conference, where all the talented blogging crafters could get together. Wouldn’t that be wonderful?
Best of luck with the moving and look forward to many exciting adventures.
Oh, and yes. Spring works great for me. Save a space for me on the bus. I’ll bring scones for everyone 😉
Just remember, we will all be here when you get back. You can ask for some time alone, “just me and my bloglines, please” and just click away. You are always in my thoughts. xo
I too love love love love that little chubby leg-o-mutton cuteness in the picture. Oh I miss the baby fat! (Theirs, not mine, no need to miss mine, I think its still here.)

I would be over in flash to help you if I could! I know what it’s like, and help is sooooo wonderful! You’ll be at the other end soon. ahhhhh…..
I wish we were all neighbors too, I would love to have you live in Sacramento. Have a safe and fun move, can’t wait to see your new place.
Have a peaceful, safe move. I wish you all the best luck and prosperity with your new adventure, and yes, yes, book the bus. 🙂
Have a great great move!!!! We’ll see you in a few!
LOVE the picture! Wishing you luck with the move. Hope the weather is nice and the trip is safe. As difficult as it sounds, try to get some sleep. Everything is a little less stressful when you’ve had some rest.
Have a safe trip – and know that we’ll still be here when you return!
Have a safe and Happy trip. I can’t wait to hear all the new adventures your family will be having. Hope they are all good, of course.Happy Trails.
I SWEAR… I almost had a complete and utter nervous breakdown the first time we moved. You’d have thought I was moving to the moon. I understand your pain. My pain was worth it and your’s will be too!
I’m a reader here in Maryland. I hope all goes well with your move. I love where I live but have not been many other places. Be well and see your posts when you get settled.
we’ll miss you, dear blogging friend. but we certainly understand.
and how sweet and cute are those little legs?
