I wrapped our books and DVDs with saran wrap to save on boxes. Plus a box full of books justs gets so darn heavy. Thank you, Mom, for the brilliant idea!
I started packing up our house for our move that's coming up. I wouldn't call myself a sentimental person, but after I had taken down all our picture frames I had to pause for just a moment. We've spent a year in this house as a married couple, and even though half of that time we've had a roommate (my cousin, Kourt), it's still where we started "us."
With all the decorations packed up in boxes, the bookshelf empty, it feels like just another house and not our home. And despite the strange feeling naked walls gives, I smiled thinking of the range of memories we made here, everything from silly to serious. This is where we started our adventure, but thankfully, the packed up boxes -- our boxes -- mean it's only the beginning.
