They didn't give us much time to even think about it since they wanted us there the first week of October. We packed up all of our stuff, which wasn't much since we left most of our belongings in Idaho, and hit the road on September 5th.
Michael was only home for two days before he had to fly to Houston and take the reins of his new office so we saw what family we could, washed a few loads of laundry and then he left for Houston and Elliot and I started packing, and cleaning and packing some more. After living in a hotel for 6 months with hardly any belongings, I think I had forgotten how much stuff we actually owned! Michael tried to find us a new place to live while he was in Texas but came back home without much luck.
We spent the next week and a half seeing as much family and friends as possible, and I am sad to say that we didn't quite make the rounds to everyone and I also was not very diligent about taking pictures when we did see our family and friends.
Moving to Texas has been bittersweet. We were extremely sad to leave all of our family and friends but we are so excited for this new adventure. We are ready to start our next chapter and experience everything that is in store for us. Here's hoping this chapter is a good one!
