our home is almost finished being packed + we are headed out of this cute one bedroom apartment! going a whole 2 miles down the road but we will still be in pasadena.
we obviously needed to get a bigger place for tiny baby harps. but packing + reflecting back on this sweet little home, i got sad. real sad.
it's the first place i've felt like home since being married. our AZ apartment was great, but just didn't ever feel like our home. unit d in pasadena definitely did. it had character + cuteness that was fun to entertain + just want to be in.
this home is full of so many memories (including but not limited to):
awesome moments with the Lord
banners being hung to celebrate the different holidays
tables full of people - eating + celebrating community
football games with victories + defeats
game nights with friends
tears in hard, trying seasons
conversations that made me + trav better spouses
dgroup girls hang outs + sleepovers
our first holidays away from both sides of the family
family + friends visiting from all over the country
and so many more i can't list or else i'll cry (#pregnancyproblems)
unit d, you've been so good to us. i'm really sad to leave because i've had some of the best moments in my life right in this sweet spot. but i know that what God has next for us is even better. i'm excited for an actual house instead of an apartment, a baby room, original hardwood floors throughout, a backyard + most importantly - a dishwasher! and ya'll are invited over!
hope you have a happy monday. sorry for walking down memory lane!

christmas time is one of my favorite holidays for many reasons. the main being Christ's birth, but i also really look forward to receiving christmas cards. i'm obsessed with the family pictures + updates each one brings. anyone else or am i just that strange?!
i have always love the idea of going to the mail box, sorting through the junk mail + then the treasue mail! so today is reason to write a post on just that - treasure mail!
treasure mail : when one receives mail that isn't a bill, junk, or just stupid. it can come as one of the following examples.
examples : wedding announcements or save the dates, baby/bridal shower invites, thinking of you cards, thank you letters, etc.
used in a sentence : omg! i got some treasure mail from my best friend!
one of my goals last year was to write treasure mail more often + mail them, with the good ol postal service. none of this technology crap. i did good the first couple months but then stopped. i tried to pick it back up but then felt like my christmas cards would suffice. lol all the way in december.
but in honor of national handwriting day, i'm here to challenge you to do just that.
hit up paper source or target + get some cute stationery with a good pen (those are so important in this process - any pen/sharpie obsessed people?! (my whole office!) ). write a card to someone you have been meaning to thank, or that you have been thinking of.
stamps don't cost that much, if you want i'll even cover your postage. but really, just spend the .46 cents. it will make someones day.
happy national handwriting day.
