Tomorrow we are buying 2 one way plane tickets to Chicago.... one way! The last time I purchased a one way ticket was when I moved to Seattle 5 years ago. I am so excited and nervous to move back home, so much has happened during these past few years, I am now married with a child of my own, I have grown and changed and matured and honestly I don't feel like the same person I was when I first arrived here in the beautiful northwest.
We will be moving in with my parents temporally until we can get on our feet and find a place of our own. It will take some getting used to but I know its the right decision for us. Mike already has a few job interviews lined up and I will be looking for a part time nanny or babysitting job that will allow me to bring Chloe along. I cant wait for the day when Chicago feels like home again. It took about a year for Seattle to feel like my home so I wonder how long it will take us to feel like Chicago is now the place we call home. I love that we will be raising Chloe in the same City that we grew up in!
This move is all about starting over and new beginnings so we wont be bringing a lot with us, only the things that means the most to us. We still have quite a bit of packing to do but this past week we have sold 3 big pieces of furniture and a few things Chloe is to big for now, like her infant car seat and bouncer. Craigslist is seriously amazing for selling things.
Be on the lookout for more updates on our big move!
