Moving, Moving, Moving....

Yes, all of you Christmas Story fans, there is an awesome leg lamp in the box marked fragile!
Being the "Bull" Travis thought it would be the perfect touch for his wardroom functions.
Ahh, an empty closet!!!

Yes, slowly but surely the boxes are beginning to pile up and we are emptying closets as we are counting down to our last week here in Maine. It has been a lot of work trying to pack with 3 kids, but we are beginning to see some real progress now. One nice thing about moving every 2-3 years is that you get to sort through and get rid of all of your junk. I can't believe how much junk we have accumulated over the years!! It feels freeing to declutter and I like that.

We have both decided that we want to be more minimalistic in the way we decorate the house. Lately we have gotten pickier about the things that we want around us and the things that we buy. I guess we are finally realizing that we don't need to buy things just because it's on sale. In the end it just becomes clutter and we eventually get rid of it. We have decided that we only want to buy things that we really like or that have special meaning to us.
Well, my break is over and I'm back to packing.
