Living in a Sea of Cardboard.

Life is just swimming along here!

You see what I did there? Sea? Swimming?

Today we were lucky enough to receive two visits from grandparents!

First Grandma and Grandpa Douglas came over for a quick hello. They brought along an early birthday present for Will, since his birthday lands a couple weeks after we move to Washington.

He's pretty thrilled about it!

Then Grandma Young was a Hero and brought us dinner, complete with giant chocolate chip cookies for desert.

I'd share a picture, only, we ate it all much too quickly.

I have no regrets.

I keep feeling like I'm so far behind, that I must hurry and Pack All the Things!

I think this stems from the many moves we've had over the years. (This will be our EIGHTH move in just over eight years!) Usually they happen last minute, so this whole thing where I have plenty of time, it's like swimming in foreign waters. (Swimming? Get it?? HA!)

Here was our office and Genevieve's room, before the packing started...

(I wish I could say they're always that tidy and lovely. Let's just pretend, for my pride. OK?)

And here they are now.

Please, refrain from calling Hoarders. I'll get it under control, I promise!

Just give me about 12 days...

It's the Final Countdown!

*cue epic music intro*

In two weeks, we leave for Washington. Actually, by the time I post this it will likely be after midnight.

In thirteen days, we leave for Washington.

Though we've known that we're making this trek since FOREVER (or, at least, officially, since November); I feel vastly unprepared for what's to come.

But what kind of adventure would it be if there wasn't a little mystery?

For example, here are the photos I have of the interior of our future soon-to-be home.

Pretty gorgeous, right?? 

Aren't you SO EXCITED to see more??

Yeah. Me too.

Leap of faith, ya'll. Leap of faith.

To be fair, I do have a layout of the house with room dimensions. This soothes the rabid planner in me.

In the meantime, we're all hard at work packing, organizing, and getting things ready for our big trek...

Well, SOME of us are hard at work.

That hammock is the greatest thing we've ever bought. I think we'll all actually be sad when it's warm enough for it to go outside.
