In One Month…

One month from today my husband and I will board a plane and embark on an exciting adventure.

One month from today we’re moving to Italy.

Honestly, just thinking about it baffles me. My emotions are on overdrive right now and I’m just taking everything one day at a time. I almost feel like I’m going on vacation, but at the same time I know that I’m moving and that things are about to change. As of right now, I’m incredibly excited, but nervousness and anxiety are starting to creep in, which is completely natural.

The packers and movers will be here this week. Two days of packing and one day of moving our household goods (basically, everything in our house), another day of packing and moving our unaccompanied baggage (we get to ship 1,000 pounds of stuff—air mattress, towels, folding chairs, etc.—that will hopefully get there faster than our household goods), and then the next week a moving company will move anything leftover into storage.

Needless to say, we’ve been pretty busy over here getting things together and sorting everything into piles. After the movers take our things we’ll just have our suitcases to live out of for the next couple months.

Time is about to go by incredibly quickly! Luckily, procrastination didn’t entirely get the best of me, because I wrote a handful of blogs that I’ll post throughout the next few weeks. You guys will also be in for a treat, because several guest bloggers will help keep you entertained over here! 

I can’t wait to share more of this exciting journey with you! 

pictures are circa 2005 when I didn’t care or know a thing about photography. I can’t wait to retake these soon 🙂


  1. I'm so excited for you! Just bummed I won't be there to greet you when you arrive. I guess you can greet me when I arrive instead. =) Good luck with the packing and moving! I'm sure that'll be a big relief when its done.

  2. your gonna love it there. i swear its the most amazing place ever when i lived there i didnt want to leave!!! enjoy and love love love the gelato….and umm the pasta…so jealous! ENVY!

  3. We just arrived in Italy 3 weeks ago, and I've been following your blog with interest… You'll love it here! I don't know where, exactly, you're headed… we're in Sicily. If that happens to be where you're going, feel free to email me! Good luck with the sorting and packing!

  4. Good luck with the move, I remember that time as well, it was very exciting and nerve wrecking all at the same time. That gelato picture you have posted….you have to go there when you are in Rome. It is so good!

  5. Crazy exiting isn't it?!?!? My husband I also leave one month from today! Except we are moving to Japan (we did have Italy on our list, but the Air Force thought Japan was better lol) Good luck with the next month of stuff, we are in the same boat as you as getting everything ready to move and be packed, and have a house for sale too!
