Listen, my heart strings have definitely been pulled selling our house we took so long to fix up for ourselves. If you followed our adventures in renovations, you’ll know we put a lot into this house – time, effort, money – and it hurts a bit to let it go. But it’s for the best … who wants to deal with yet another property when you’re on the other side of the world?
I think the part that stings the most is our deck – our beautiful deck, that we shelled out a lot of extra money to build in composite so that it will last forever – the deck I did not get to use one time. Not one single time, guys. It could almost make you cry.
Easing the sting is the copious amounts of snow and ice everywhere. Could you tell this photo was taken in April. Yuck. Time to get out of here!
This is the house mid-move. I also have to confess that having movers come in and pack everything has been one of the most incredible experiences in my life, in that I didn’t have to experience the pain and horror of packing and moving. They came in, we left, and next thing you know our house was empty and all of our stuff is prepped to be shipped across the world.
And we are also prepping ourselves to be shipped across the world. Today is d-day – off we go on our Swiss adventure. Next time you hear from me, it will be from the other side of the world!
