Exciting News!!

I'm excited to finally be able to share some details of our move!  Next month, we will be headed HOME!  We aren't just moving back to my hometown, we're buying my parents' house - the house that they built when I was just a few months old, the house that I grew up in.

We had planned to move back home before we had kids who were ready to go to school, but after Ellie was born we really wanted to head back sooner rather than later.  My parents' are building a new house just a few minutes away from their current place, and we will be about twenty minutes away from Tyler's family.  We couldn't be happier to have family close by + be back in our favorite place!

Don't even get me started on getting to mark Ellie's growth chart on the basement wall right next to my name or putting her on the school bus on the first day of Kindergarten at the top of the same driveway that I waited for mine.  Yes, there will totally be tears. We have so many great memories in that house already and cannot wait to create more as our own little family!

Speaking of tears... there's a 200% chance you will find me reaching for a box of tissues while packing up our current home.  While the excitement of moving outweighs the sadness, it is definitely bittersweet to be leaving this place.  This little 1,050 square foot house of ours has been our home for just about three and a half years.  Tyler and I bought it before we were married and had no idea all of the amazing times that would be in store for us over the next few years.  I cried packing up our rental house that we lived in before this (and that we couldn't wait to leave), so perhaps I have some attachment issues but I think we can all agree that goodbyes are never easy.

This move has been in the works for longer than you could probably imagine (with a few bumps along the way), but we will officially be moving mid-December after being away for about nine and a half years.  It's certainly going to add a little bit of chaos to the Christmas season... but also a lot of cheer, right?! ;)  I also only have seven more work days left at the company I have been with since junior year of college, which feels very surreal at this point.  We are so excited for this next chapter and cannot wait to see what the future holds for our family!! :) 

Home is where the heart is — one cliche that is absolutely true.:

  1. Oh my gosh! That is very exciting new!! I can't even imagine how exciting it must be to raise your kids in the same home you were raised it. Sounds absolutely wonderful. Welcome (almost) back to Hubb! :)
