So in contrast to the last photo of our tidy dining room and kitchen, I’ll share with you the spare bedroom, which currently houses the majority of our miscellaneous belongings. You can barely see the true level of messiness here but you get a general idea.
Much can be hidden in a spare bedroom closet.
I am going through every box as I unpack to weed out stuff we don’t need anymore.
And amazingly, I found a gift card from one of our wedding showers…over a year and a half ago. It was tucked into the top of a box of Pyrex dishes that we didn’t open because we didn’t have room for them in our old place. I knew we lost the gift card all those months ago and finding it felt victorious. Until we spent it in less than 2.5 seconds on a new Brita water pitcher after work tonight.
We turned in our keys to the old place today. And after spending the past 3 nights here we are starting to feel settled. The drive to work this morning was at least 10 minutes quicker than our previous drive. And although we didn’t drive straight home tonight, we think our drive home will be about 20 minutes quicker.
Not too shabby.
