Inspired by Post: Moving

Hi Friends! Sorry I missed yesterday's post! I've been trying very hard to post at least every day during the work week, but yesterday got away from me and I blanked on scheduling the post.  I am a bit sad as it was a Show and Tell Tuesday post too! But, such is life, right?

So a while back, I was having writers block and reached out to some blogger friends for inspiration.  Thankfully, they are amazing and recommended that I check out the monthly writing prompts from The SITS Girls. Let me tell you, if you are a blogger and have writers block, check out their site! I've written down easily 20 to 30 ideas in case I ever get in a bind and need some inspiration. 

All of that being said, one of the prompts they gave is to do a post inspired by the word "moving" and I thought it would be perfect to share with everyone today.

Right now moving means a lot of things.  Justin and I are in the process of buying our first every house (eek!) so that means in six weeks or so we will pack up all of our stuff (well whatever is going with us) and start a new adventure together.  It is kind of crazy to think that we have been in this apartment for the past three and a half years.  This place has been our home and moving from here will be strange. But it also is extremely exciting. 

We knew that when we moved into this apartment, it would be (most likely) the last apartment that we will live in, so we were a bit picky when deciding on a place to live.  That and we had to have a place that accepted pets because we had Frye.  In this apartment we've celebrated some wonderful holidays, started some wonderful traditions with friends and even added to our family by adopting Leilah.  It will be crazy leaving this place and moving into our first house.

The other thing I think of when I hear the word moving is the thought of moving forward.  The last year has been all about moving forward in life.  I had gone through a rather long period of serious depression that ruined some relationships and caused me to be almost unbearable to be around.  I'll admit it now - looking back on it all, I was pretty awful.  Thankfully I have some friends that helped me through that difficult time and continue to help me move forward.  So when I think of moving, I constantly remind myself that I need to just keep moving forward instead of getting stuck in the past.

So what do you think of when you hear the word "moving"? I am hoping that for you the word brings hope and excitement like it does for myself.

Question of the Day: How does the word "moving" inspire you?
I'd love to hear from you!

  1. I have lived in my apartment for about the same amount as time as you - it will be 3.5 years next month - and am house-hunting currently. This market is awful though :-/ everything gets snatched up quickly within my price range. Congrats on the new house! :)

    1. House hunting is crazy! Thankfully we found one we liked as soon as it came onto the market and our offer was accepted pretty quickly. Good luck on the hunt! Hopefully you find something soon :)

    2. Thanks :) I've been looking since the end of January. This week was pretty slow, nothing much new was listed, but last week I saw a condo and a house.


Glad you stopped by! Please share your thoughts with me and I will do my best to respond ASAP!
