Windy City Here We Come: Part 2

In exactly one week from today the three of us will be boarding a one way plane to Chicago. Right now I am filled with so many different emotions - excitement, nervousness, fear and the idea of moving is finally sinking in. Seattle has been our home for 5 years now, its what we know and though we lived in IL for the majority of our life it now feels like such a foreign place in my mind.

I really am excited to move but with any big decision comes fear and worry. I love knowing we will be raising Chloe in the same place we grew up and I cant wait for all the wonderful adventures we will have as a family!

We are almost completely packed and ready to go! We have some friends picking up our dinning room table and chairs tomorrow evening and besides a couch that's all the furniture we have left. After that the only thing left to do is to pack our suitcases with clothes and deep clean our apartment before we turn in our keys. This apartment will always hold such a special place in my heart, this is the first home Mike and I have lived in together and the first place we raised our daughter in for the first 9 1/2 months of her life, I will never forget this sweet little home of ours!

Tomorrow my Mother in-law will be meeting Chloe for the first time!, then we will be going out with some friends and their kids for a goodbye dinner. Then on Friday me and my good friend Erika will be having a girls night out in Seattle! This will only be the second time I have been without Chloe so I'm nervous but also excited to get dressed up and spend time with my friend without our babies around. Then on Sunday my sister in-law will be throwing a goodbye party for us at their house! Its going to be a busy and fun week!

 Be on the look out for lots pictures in the next few days!
