Last night was bittersweet. It was our official last night sleeping in our apartment. This has been our home for nearly two and a half years. In this little apartment we've laughed, we've wept, we've been lazy, we've worked our butts off, and love every second. We've celebrated birthdays, surprised each other, woke up on Christmas mornings, baked cookies, slept under a fort, worshipped in our living room, etc., so its a little difficult to leave. On the flip side? I realize that "home" isn't about the location of the roof over my head, its about who I'm with...and as long as I'm with this guy, I'd be willing to call anywhere "home".
We've spent every night this week finishing up all the packing and while I'm at work today the men in our family are doing the grunt work, and we plan on paying them with lots of pizza and lots of hugs. We've thrown a ton out and its felt so good to get rid things we hardly use. I've come to realize I don't need 3 round cake pans, 7 cookie sheets and a billion random kitchen utensils I haven't touched once. Goodwill is gonna have a blast ;)
All in all this has been a jam-packed, but awesome week. We're so excited to begin this new chapter in our lives! We're praying God will continue to enable us to work hard and be debt-free soon, then we can begin saving up for a hefty down payment on a HOUSE!!!! Thanks, as usual, for following along!!! Enjoy your weekend!
Home is wherever I'm with you.
