Don’t worry, Florida friends — it’s not very far! In fact, we will still have the same zip code–it’s only about 5 minutes from our current place. This house-buying business has been brewing for awhile, actually. If you count when we started really looking at houses, several months, actually. The market here is cray. We ended up making 5 different offers, and finally, the fifth one was the charm, I guess. She’s a cutie mid-80s ranch with updated interior and a pool, and an all-white kitchen that I’m excited to use in recipe photos! We still have not closed yet, so anything can happen, but we should get the keys in about two weeks. We have lived in our current place for almost 3 years now, which feels like a long time. So much to sort and pack!
Which means I am becoming a packing machine. My Type A side loves this chance to over-organize a process that is otherwise inherently chaotic, and I’ll be sharing all that organizational goodness with you! Look for a post coming up with some awesome free printable color-coded packing labels that I made for y’all (and for myself, let’s be honest), and probably some other moving-related posts as I really get this thing going.
