Well Hello There Everyone!!!
I am back and settled(ish)! Cooper…is another story, but we will get to that!
Let’s see…since last we chatted, life has been BUSY…
We packed up our entire house. And by we, I mean myself and my parents. The BOY did pack one full box but before you think he did nothing, he was in charge or organizing our last minute move on a holiday weekend. Not an easy job!
July 1st was a gorgeous day and our movers were amazing and efficient. Before we knew it, were standing in an empty home. Full of emotion, of course, as the excitement of our next adventure begins with the nostalgia of having 10 years of memories in this house (including our first kiss!).
I was super grateful for the assistance of my P’s but even more thankful that they took us in to their home when we had none without question. The three of us traded in our 3 bedroom home for a bedroom. The first few nights were rough as we couldn’t find a thing and had Cooper crammed in with us.
But Saturday night we had a BBQ with my bestie and her family and it really did feel so good to be home!
The rest of the weekend was catching up on life, unpacking, getting organized, laundry, and grocery shopping. The 4 us had a meeting to meal plan out the week, which has been very successful. My dad found a white board to keep track of everything and has also added a countdown until our move out date : )
Which brings me to the excitement of the week. We signed a lease for a Chicago apartment (and there was much rejoicing!) but it’s not available until September 2nd…
So we are living it up with my parents, appreciating the home cooked family meals (including my dad’s famous stir fry) and laundry service and hoping that Cooper can adjust to living with 4 adults as opposed to his usual 2. There has been a bit more hissing lately!
The BOY and I are also commuting together which might be an even bigger challenge than moving in or planning a wedding : )
On the yoga front, I am LOVING my training. We had some time off but are probably about half way done and I am already feeling sad for when it will be over. I am reading a ton and learning a lot.
I am doing way more yoga than running and feeling really good about it. Comfortable with myself as I am growing each day of this journey that I know (hope) is just beginning. This past weekend we taught each other which was exciting and nerve wrecking!
And if that’s not enough excitement…the Tour de France started this week (more rejoicing!!). I’ve got the entire family watching and cheering on my favorite riders. Between that and the Olympic trials, our blooming social life, and trying to capture a few minutes of down time, life has been plugging along!
But I’ve miss you guys! Tell me what’s going on with you…
