✨ Today has been ROUGH. Woke up early this morning so I could get the rest of my stuff📦 out of the house by today! Then it started pouring rain🌧, of course.🙄 For some reason I had to go back through the house to triple and quadruple check everything to make sure I hadn’t left anything behind cause I felt like I was forgetting something.🤦🏻♀️
✨As I walked through the empty house though, it brought me back to when I first bought it... it was an outdated mess to say the least, but it had potential. I thought about all the details I had spent months and months picking out like the flooring, wall colors, appliances, designing the kitchen & bathrooms... and how someone else was going to get to enjoy all these things now.
✨Alothugh I’m super excited to move and follow my dreams, it’s a little bitter sweet to be leaving this house that myself and my family worked so hard on for almost 10 months. Today as I walked into each and every room, I was reminded of all the memories I have made here. How it was a family effort to put the flooring down, how me and my grandfather built my pantry, how many tries it took to get the paint colors right, how I had them cut a hole in my kitchen wall, and completely change my front door location, the custom kitchen I designed, the tile in the bathrooms that it took forever to pick out, all the things I changed to make the house mine, and all the time I spent with my family doing it all. Then, it was time to hand the keys🔑 to my very first house🏡, over to the new owner.
✨I’ll be staying with family through Christmas🎅🏼🎄and then I’m headed to the desert!!🏜 Closing the chapter📗 on this part of my life and starting a new one. Excited about what my future holds!!💗 Just a few short days and I’ll be saying goodbye to Tennessee.
Yes it's raining and raining. 💧💧 At this time of year it's easy to stay inside, but if getting a little wet does not bother you, dress warmly, grab your boots and an umbrella 🌂, and take a step outside. A walk in the rain can be very refreshing and if you're dressed warmly, it's a great way to clear your mind and de-stress.
