Top 5 Moving Tips!

I’ve moved 9 times in the past 16 years as a married wife and Mother. Each time it has been crazy. Each time it gets a little better. We still do not own our own home and want to, so another move will be in the works in the next few years or so.

Here are a few tips that I have found extremely helpful:

  1. Start early: 6-8 weeks in advance. Start getting rid of all the stuff you don’t want to have in your new home/ stuff you haven’t used in over a year.
  2. Get strong, sturdy boxes. Fill them up all the way- putting pillows or towels on the top.
  3. Wrap your furniture in those plastic rolls you can buy- it really helps with any nicks and scratches!
  4. Get help the last week or so- you are going to need it!
  5. Leave your picture up on the wall until the last few days- it makes home still feel like a home.

Good luck!

Summer time!

My last post was a bit negative.


With that being said, Inhave to say that we are in California and it’s summer time! So exciting! When I’m not recovering from the move, we head out to the pool or the beach with cousins to cool off. Sometimes I just send Josh with the kids and enjoy a quiet house!


Other times, we grab an ice cold popsicle of food dye and sugar, call it summer, and hang out on the hammock. It’s fun!

I love summer! I love kids and I love the beach and cold crystally popsicles.
