Ohhhhhhh believe me when I say that I am ALL over Pinterest right now! …
YES! It is true!!! Found, approved and signed for a place just last night and I am SO excited! Just a rental space for now as I will want to plan my dream house to build for the future. 🙂 I am moving from my house that I have lived my entire life (besides college) to 40 minutes north in Orlean/Marshall, VA! There is a cute house up there with abundance of space around and inside the house … which only means I FINALLY will have an office space of my own! Sooooo excited! My office space right now is not so much designed to be an office. That is definitely changing! Cannot WAIT to start brewing up design ideas for my office … well actually, the ENTIRE HOUSE! I love decorating and designing so this is going to be a fun part … when I can make the time for it. I love that everything happens for a reason, but gosh … this is totally happening during my busy season! So somehow between weddings, sessions, business stuff and work, I will need to be able to pack up my entire life, move and unpack/decorate. Seems a little overwhelming to me at the moment. Haha!
Here is my current room I will be packing up! Going to miss this!
The Big Move: NEXT THURSDAY! AH! I won’t pull my hair out… 😉
The one concern that pops to my mind at the moment is my wittle Pixie! This will be her first move and I hope she adjusts well. I’m concerned because she has morphed into somewhat of an outdoor kitty (well, outdoor during the day and indoor at night) and I don’t think I can allow her to go outside around my new house because the road is a little closer than my family’s house. AND not to mention that my family had to go save her last night out of a TREE … I don’t know what is going on with her but she got herself into a tree 25-30 feet up and she could not get down. Something must have scared her to get up there … but this is not the first time as she has gotten herself stuck in a tree two other times in the past month! Anyone else had similar issues like this? Typically, I would think that cats can get down themselves but she definitely has a problem. One time a few weeks ago, we were on the search for her for hours and almost being gone for 24 hours, my sister found her in a tree with barely a voice to cry because it sounded like she had been crying for a while. 🙁 My poor baby! So I have come to the conclusion that I will not let her out of the house when I make the move … maybe do baby steps to welcoming her outside, but I would not leave her unattended.
So I need advice — Any experienced movers who have found effective ways to packing?! I am a little overwhelmed imagining where to even start packing a room since I have only done college moves which is minor in comparison to moving my entire life! ALSO: I am still in need of a coffee table, end table, shelving and nightstands … anyone know of where I can get an awesome deal? 🙂 I have been looking around but I do not want to spent a lot of money for plastic furniture. I love authentic wooden pieces … so I have been considering yard sales and whatnot, but if you have any suggestions or know of someone who wants to get rid of their pieces let me know. 🙂
Anyways, I am SOOOOO excited to make this big leap in my life and will be sure to share photos of the new space once the house is settled in! 🙂 Thought I would share the brand new news of the week! EEeeeee!
