Autumn is definitely making its presence known today. There’s a chill in the air, cloudy grey skies, and rain sprinkling on and off. I opened my kitchen window to let in the breeze.
As I stood there, looking out and washing a few dishes, I was struck by the fact that I’ll have a different view in just a few days! Moving day is almost here.
The view isn’t much to speak of. There are just other apartment buildings, the parking lot, and a patch of sky, but it’s familiar. While I’m incredibly excited to move to a slightly bigger, nicer apartment, I’m also a little sad to be leaving our first home as newlyweds.
We’ve lived here for almost exactly a year and three months, and it’s been such a sweet, precious time of love and growth. We’ve made so many memories, laughed and cried more times than I can count, and been so, so happy.
But moving day is almost here.
How is it possible that we only have two more nights left in this little place? Moving is definitely bittersweet for us. It signifies the end of one chapter of our lives and the beginning of a new one. Soon, there will be three of us instead of two!
Change Is in the Autumn Air
We’re so in love with our little Jack, and certainly can’t wait to meet him, but a small part of me will miss life as just the two of us. Of course, we’re far more excited than anything, and life will never be the same once Jack arrives! Moving into our new apartment means moving forward. We’ll be one step closer to meeting our little boy. We’ll be one step closer to realizing our dream of owning our first home.
Moments of sadness and sentimentality keep popping up here and there, but I’m truly excited for what the Lord has in store for our future.
Let the new adventure begin!
