Space, space, sapce!!!

So I haven't updated in a while, but we've been busy and I've been stressing. Things were moving sluggishly slow in regards to our new house and the longer it took to finalize the deal, the more worried Brent and I got that something was going to fall through. But I'm VERY happy to say we finally closed yesterday and we own a new house!!! Brent and I left the closing and went straight over to our new place to really explore. It felt so good to unlock that door ourselves and let ourselves in! There is so much SPACE in that house!!! I'm sure we'll find some way to fill it all up (Nate mostly, LOL), but it's almost twice as big as the house we're in now. I'm so thankful that this opportunity presented itself to us and we were able to make it work. We'll be moving into our new home this coming weekend and while we're very much looking forward to it, a little part of me will be so sad to leave our current home. We've been living here for over four years and they've been very happy years! This was our first home and this is the home we became a family in! This was Nate's first home and I will never forget walking through the door with him in my arms for the first time. So it is not without a little wistfulness that we will pack up our belongings and leave this house behind. We will be taking some great memories with us! Of course, what we're not looking forward to, is the actual moving process. They do say that the only thing worse than packing is unpacking, LOL! I have to agree. Packing up this house has definitely been very time consuming and frustrating. It's like the more we pack and put away, the more stuff I find--ugh. At least this might serve for a good cleaning! Get rid of junk that's been accumulating for the last four years. Brent has a rule--if you haven't seen it or thought about it in the last year, it's garbage. He's got a point, I guess, but I get attached. Not always easy to get rid of some things. Luckily my mom and my aunt have been coming up and helping us pack up. And we have several friends that will be helping us with the move on Saturday. I'm wondering if maybe I can talk them all into staying and helping us unpack after we're all moved in??? :D
