With summer around the corner, some of us might be thinking about summer beach bodies and regretting having that warm comfort food over the chilly Winter season.

𝐌𝐨𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐃𝐚𝐲!⁣ ⁣ So to my surprise... I got really emotional last night as I was packing up our stuff.⁣ We’ve lived in this house for over 4 years & to those who don’t know, it was my childhood home before my mother passed away in 2009...⁣ After she passed, my step-dad & sisters moved out & it was just sitting there. For years. ⁣ So my dad bought it & asked us to move in because he travels a lot for work & the acreage was too much to keep up on himself, as he’s getting older.⁣ So my husband would manage the outside yard work, helped build a fence, tore out trees & bushes, etc.⁣ I took care of cleaning, dishes, laundry, cooking, etc. for all 5 of us. ⁣ But as the years have gone on... it’s gotten harder & harder to stay happy here. ⁣ Being the sole care taker of 5 people is hard. Especially when they aren’t always appreciative...⁣ So! My husband & I have decided to downsize into a 3 bedroom apartment that will be more conducive to our little family.⁣ I am looking forward to it but my Type A, high anxiety, likes things a certain way, organized self is freaking out a bit at the moment lol. ⁣ Once we are moved & settled, I’m sure I will be very happy. ⁣ But I will miss this house & all of the memories I carry with it. ⁣ ⁣ 𝘋𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘢 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥𝘩𝘰𝘰𝘥 𝘩𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦 & 𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘦𝘮𝘣𝘦𝘳??⁣ ⁣ absolutemama sahmlife mom love momlife sahm married sahmomlife regularmom mommy baby wifelife babyboy marriage babyofinsta mama instagood momofinstagram momoncall wife photooftheday lovemybaby instamood minimal mamahood mamakind lifequotes lifestyle mamablog mamalife
