There’s so much to catch up on so I figure I’d start from here, when I left Louisville at the end of June and moved in with my parents to start my new job. So during this time period, I was back and forth between Louisville and St. Louis a lot to get the house ready to go on the market and figure out our move/storage situation.
My first week in St. Louis was a little rough. The car ride from Louisville to STL after this night was horrible. I was not only hungover, but so, so sad to leave Kevin and all of our friends. But, I knew that it was all going to work out so I was optimistic.
Moving in with your parents as a married 27-year-old is weird. I mean, I’m lucky because my parents are legit awesome. They’re so fun, totally chill and I’m super close with them. But still. I went from owning my own house to moving back into my childhood bedroom. It’s not all bad…they would bring me coffee in bed! 😉
It was a little eerie driving into my first day of work. It was just five years ago that I walked away from the same place that I was driving back to, which I never thought I’d get do.
But, it was incredible! Some things have changed tremendously but at the same time, oddly enough, it felt very similar.
It was hard being away from Kevin and home for so much of July, but my work was great with my schedule and let me work from home in Louisville quite often. But on those weeks when I was in St. Louis, I got plenty of girl time with the pups! (My parents are so graciously watching Gracie for us while we’re in transition. We felt this would be best for her, as she wouldn’t have to move from her home, to temporary housing to new house, plus all that travel between Lou and STL so much.)
On the weeks I did go back to Louisville, I was like a giddy little kid. I couldn’t wait to get back home and see my hubby! We spent many nights out enjoying our favorite spots in the city before we left for good.
We also made sure to spend as much time as possible with Danny and Sara! This meant many, many euchre nights.
And, every night possible under the party lights on the back deck.
We spent a lot of nights together doing paperwork, especially when it came to selling our house. But, that’s a whole other story. 😉
