Moving time

So I moved from Kansas to Colorado over the weekend with my boyfriend of a little more than one year, and I'm not sure I've ever been happier for something to be over.

Packing is the worst--do I even need to say that?

Except that we're not totally done. A lot of my family lives out here, so until we get on our feet, we're staying with my mom. But! we're planning to get out our own place pronto, which means we'll need to move all of our stuff again.

But I'm kind of excited for that part.

I can't wait to decorate our place and have our own space. Pinterest and DIY Buzzfeed have probably given me an on over-inflated sense of my own abilities, but I look at it as the perfect time to get crafty.

Still, it's a bit scary that my boyfriend and I went from having jobs and apartments to being unemployed with nowhere to live in the course of a weekend. But we both know it's exactly what we want and the move has been totally necessary.

While I loved the city we used to live in, I can't imagine spending yet another year there doing the same thing day in and day out.

It would've been ideal to move with jobs already lined up, but we have money saved up and clearly, we like to live on the edge.

The only thing that sucks is the people you leave behind.

Social media won't replace actually seeing them in person and I didn't realize how attached I had become to the town until I was packing up my belongings.

But I spent about 5 years in that town and it's time to move on.

And I've got some exciting new things to look forward to: moving in with my boyfriend, living near my family again and a blog redesign!

Crystal from The Happy Type gifted me a with re-design from the talented and lovely Melyssa of the The Nectar Collective and I can't wait to see the final result. She has already sent me lots of great stuff, so I know it'll be awesome.
