You all had great tips for moving... and I followed your advice. I labeled everything & made sure to be specific :) We had a great move, tiring, but overall, things went pretty smoothly! We had my dad, sister, and cousins to help and also hired movers. (thankfully)
We spent our first night in the house last night - and it was a wonderful feeling.
I am most excited about the memories we are going to make in this home. I see it as the place we will take our babies home from the hospital (someday) and a place where we have lots of family & friends over. It's amazing what four walls can do for you - how it becomes a home, a comfortable spot for you. TL and I feel so blessed & lucky to have such a wonderful place to live and continue our lives together!
When we first were looking at homes (it was a pretty long process) I remember walking into ours now and feeling so much love. The previous owner took incredible care of it - the carpet, walls, floors - everything, he loved his home. (He also built and designed it!)
When we looked at it originally, I could picture tiny shoes lined across the laundry room floor, bikes and a basketball hoop in the the front yard, and the buzz of people talking and laughing. It just has a great feel to it. We are so excited!
Here are a few pictures from the move:
I labeled, labeled, labeled!

Very confused pups... but they're settling in now!
At the front door of our new home!
It is definitely a work in progress... but we have gotten so much done! We got some new stuff, and I am so excited about it all. I will post some pictures as soon as we get more things unpacked!
Hope you have a fabulous 4th of July weekend!
