T Minus 7 Days

In exactly one week, we will be on our way to Illinois. It's so crazy! The last month has gone by so quickly. We're both busy packing, finishing stuff up for work, and squeezing in last-minute visits with friends.

Here's a couple pictures of the mess that is our apartment. (I took these pictures several days ago, so it is MUCH worse now).

The holding area. We now have about 25 boxes stacked in that tiny area of our living room.

The Goodwill pile. It has also grown considerably. I just want to make one trip, so I'm waiting until the day before to make a Goodwill run. (If you see something that you gave us in this pile, please do not be offended; we are pretty brutal in our paring down!)

The mess is kind of stressing me out, but I know it's only temporary. We're actually doing really well on our packing. We packed up almost the whole kitchen last night. That's always the most difficult room, so I feel good about our progress.

I'm so excited for you guys!!! I hate packing, but it's always fun to live in a new place. I can't wait to hear about your adventure of moving to a new home.

I DEFINTELY do not envy you having to pack and move, but I am thankful for the opportunity you guys have. I am SO looking forward to hearing about your new adventures in the great state of Illinois! I wish I could see you guys before you leave....Please know that I love you and Darby, and I am praying for your safe travels. LOVE YOU BUNCHES, Aunt Katina
