Throughout this move, I've managed to clear out some of our belongings. We lived on a fairly busy street so sometimes I would just set items on the corner and time how long it would take before someone would snatch it up. This actually was pretty entertaining. One person decided to leave the "FREE" sign but take their new treasure. Another way of de-cluttering was through Craig's List. I sold everything I posted within one day! The photo above is my photo enlarger with which I've decided to part ways, it is a little sad. I can remember spending hours and hours in the dark room just hoping I had the right exposure. I'm fully digital now.

We have a good friend, who will remain anonymous, who is crazy for pimento spread. He's so silly because he tries to deny it but the first time we went over to his apartment, the gigantic family size container sat half empty in his fridge. Pimento spread is one of those foods that has a unusual flavor and texture. Deviled eggs are also in the group.

After spending all day touring houses, we finally made a decision . . . okay so this house isn't remotely in our price range but I thought it would make for good dream home picture. From the outside, it looks like the owner is remodeling. Someday, I would LOVE to renovate an older home but that dream will have to wait until we have more time and money, maybe in 2030?

As an adult, there are so many mundane activities we do each day that we take for granted. H finally figured out clapping today and he couldn't be more excited. It's pretty cute watching him examine each hand and slowly bringing them together. Bravo, Bravo!

Today was so busy I didn't have time to pull out the camera. This Harrison photo (taken almost exactly a year ago) reminded me of how we all felt at the end of the day. We survived it but I secretly wished I could scream without anyone looking at me or locking me up :)

Old Brown Couch has been passed among family members for years (maybe even decades). According to Ryan, this is the world's most comfortable couch. I know parting with it was one of the hardest parts of the move for him. I hope it will be happy with its new adopted family.

In these final days of packing, Lucy has found solace in bird watching. This morning, her and Mr. Squirrel were having a stare down, not sure who won . . . So to you Mr. S, we offer a cup of seeds for a peaceful farewell. You will be missed by the entire family.

I almost photographed our mail slot in our front door but I think our neighbor's mailbox is neater. I love that he has a dining room chair permanently on his front porch. Anyways, the reason for today's image is to give a "shout out" to our mailman. He carefully delivers our mail on time (unlike our last one who would read our magazines and give them a week later). I told him we were moving and he offered to bring us the moving forms. Now that's service. He'll definitely be missed.

About two months ago, I noticed this sign only there was a "P" before ANTS. I thought it was kinda cleaver yet I wondered if it was a front for something else. Last week, the "P" somehow disappeared which I find humorous. First, they haven't fixed the sign and second, I wonder if anyone has shown up with ants in their pants.

I've recently had the pleasure of photographing these three beautiful babies, all of whom will be turning one within the next month. This is one of my favorite ages to photograph, they aren't quite aware of the camera yet.
J-Man has the BEST smile, you can't help but smile back at him. He's quite the explorer and he provides his parents with constant entertainment.
Miss M has the most amazing blue eyes, you have to see her to believe it. You can already tell she's going to be a sweetheart.
Mr. H had a good time during his photo shoot. He's such a trooper, hanging in there while I follow him around with my camera. We're very proud of our lil' guy.

We've had this gigantic roll of tape for the past two years and have used it for two major relocations. I told Ryan I am done moving once this roll is gone. Well, we're using it again and heading south. I might have to go tape crazy with a few boxes.
