21 weeks & the move is on

It looks like it's all going to happen. The home inspection went brilliantly well - nothing about the house is making us come to a screeching halt - so we are proceeding forward and close in a little less than 4 weeks!

As of last night, packing has officially begun. However, before anything was taken down and put in a box, I snapped pictures of this little place we called home for the past 3 1/2 years.

When we first moved in (just for fun, here is a pic of me, circa 2007, on moving day), I remember telling the landlady that we would be here for no more than a year. Ha. Little did I know. This condo may have been a rental and temporary, but it helped our family grow. We came in as a unit of 3 and leaving as a party of 5. And we are taking all the memories we made with us.

Anna won't remember anything, but can't wait to show her pictures of where she spent the first 6 months of her life.

So as I was saying, packing has officially begun. Early, I know, but we are all about doing things ahead of time. I can see our place becoming a war zone in the next few days, but it will be worth it when Moving Day 2010 comes.

We didn't go anywhere to take Anna's weekly photo this weekend. Just didn't feel energized to go out. So I took this picture in front of the fireplace, which we never used the entire time living here. And that vase of dried flowers? It was given to me by hubs over 6 years ago + survived at least 4 moves. Think it will survive this one?

{Happy 21 weeks, Anna! You don't have a clue, but we are moving!}
