In just five days, we move out of our apartment. I went back and reviewed my posts, but I don’t think I’ve actually told you all that we are moving to New York. Yes, New York! Oh how I have waited for this day. Though we won’t officially start our lease until the end of the summer, all plans are in place and it’s just a matter of time now before I’ll be that much closer to my family, and a whole host of wonderful friends.
Even though I’m beyond excited, I find myself feeling very nostalgic about our current home. I have never felt so sad to leave an apartment! And that’s saying something considering I’ve moved every year for the past 4 years. I wish we could just pack up the place with the rest of our stuff and call it a day. Yes I love the kitchen and the amenities, but it’s the things like our Saturday morning breakfast routine, the light in our bedroom, or the slight noise of the key in the door when Brandon gets home from work that I’ll miss the most. Of course we’ll develop new habits in our new space, but for now it’s hard to leave these ones behind.
It’s no secret I’m a planner. Every other move I’ve made, I’ve begun packing weeks in advance. By this point I would have been mostly packed. But this time around I plan on reveling in this space up until the last moment. So despite the fact that we’ve only packed maybe five boxes, I don’t feel stressed. I just feel like squeezing as many more meals and moments and whatnot out of our last few days here.
