Thoughts on the big move

Sharing is caring!

Our big move to Tennessee is coming up soon. Just a couple weeks away now. And as I pack up boxes, have those last playdates and lunches with friends, I start thinking about the things I am excited to have in the near future, and the things I am going to miss when we leave.

I’m excited about:

Finally being close to family so that everyone can enjoy each other once again.

Free babysitting.


The opportunities that come with having a solid support system.

Reconnecting with old friends.


Finally having a garden.



Watching my children grow up in the same place I grew up.

More dates with my husband.

Getting my sanity back.

A chance to organize my house from scratch.

Starting over in general.

Things I’m going to miss:

All of the friends I have made here.

Golf cart rides to the park.

Breakfast with other moms of multiples.

A really close grocery store.

A 3rd bedroom.

My great neighbors.

The big consignment sales.

My gas stove

High speed internet

Things I’m not going to miss:

My house – all of it

Expensive or unavailable babysitters.

My trash company ( really, they are horrible)

High property taxes

Car tags that are due on my birthday.

Pine trees.
