Praise!! This weekend was all about signing our lease and literally running to the bank and to FedEx to overnight the security deposit. This weekend was about meeting with our top three movers and after what felt like a crazy day of speed dating, we finally decided on one… which meant more signing and more bank runs. (This is also when Emily realized she’d lost her checkbook- something she’s NEVER done in her life before, and therefore having to go BACK to the bank for a third time so that her banker could take care of the problem.) (Talking about it in 3rd person makes me feel like I’m talking about someone else and it’s not totally my fault.) This weekend was about moving our actual move date UP about a week and a half, which also means my days of watching movies and packing “for fun” is now more like, “OMG we gotta get this place packed NOW.” So obviously there’s a whollllllle lot going on over here, but all of it is good (well, minus the checkbook fiasco) and I’m giving SO MUCH PRAISE that all of it really is going so smoothly.
We are incredibly excited about the house we found in Nashville. We’d prayed for what felt like so long for a “perfect home” that would fit our “home-life” needs as well as Christian’s studio needs and this house is seriously perfect for it all. I can’t wait to share some of it with you guys in the months to come. Until then, if you could keep us in your prayers… this next month is going to be about a lot of details and packing and I’m hoping we’re also able to enjoy the last of our days in Chicago while we are still here. The good news is that since we’re now moving BEFORE Christmas (Dec 16th to be exact!), we’ll be able to breathe easy and really relax and enjoy my favorite holiday with our families. And once again, I am grateful.
(And PS- thank you all so much for continuing to bear with me as it still feels like I’m on a bit of a blogging break. I’m told these boxes can’t pack themselves but I think that’s something someone should look into inventing..) (Also, Thanksgiving is this week. !!!!!!!!!! I’ll have some special Thanksgiving related posts these next three days – can’t wait!)
