time to go


We inherited a bird's nest with freshly hatched chicks hanging in the planter outside our door. Over the course of the first week we occasionally peeked in at them as they grew. On the day our movers came these baby birds decided to leave the nest. We watched as first one then the other hopped (or was pushed by its mom) down to the pavement and stumbled confusedly off to safety as the mother and father flew nervously nearby. All while our things were being unloaded from the moving van and into our house.

the movers finally arrive



After a week of waiting, our things finally arrive Sunday morning at 7:45am. Nothing about this process has been convenient for us but at this point we just don't care anymore and are pleased to have our things -- especially our bed and our own chairs to sit on.

a momentary break

Even cleaning out the fridge can provide a lovely surprise once in a while!

packing continues

We've been packing forever (ok, 5 days) and it feels like we haven't even started. Jon is doing the lion's share of the work since I can't lift or climb.
