Crazy Little Life

Wow. It's been way too long!

Big things have been happening with our little family. We are moving back to Ohio! I know.. I know.. the first question we get is {Why in the world would we leave the beach?}

Right after we got Engaged! 

We have absolutely LOVED our time on the coast in Charleston. We are so thankful for the friends we have met here.. and the memories we've made. We have so many BIG things that have happened here.. Dan proposed, We married, Bought our first house, got a kitten, and then our little daughter was born.

Not to mention.. the friends that I've made.. they are irreplaceable. I can't say enough about them or how much they've been there for me. I think moving to S.C. has helped me realize what true friendships are. People that bring you up and not down.. people that truly listen and are there for you when you need them. I'm going to miss them a lot! :(

Anyway - When we first moved to S.C. - We thought we'd stay a few years.. and a few years turned into five. Five amazing years.

Our families are in Ohio. Both of us had the chance to be close to our grandparents growing up.. we are starting to feel like we're cheating Em and our parents out of that chance. It's the right thing.. and it's a hard thing. I loved growing up in Ohio.. I'm scared to move back in a lot of ways, but at the same time, we both have an AWESOME group of family and friends ready to welcome us with open arms.

I'd say we are pretty lucky.

Anyway - I'm sorry it's been so long.. and I'm sorry this post is so long!

Here is what I've learned so far from moving (which we aren't even close to being done yet):

Moving is not easy.

- Moving with a one year old is nearly impossible. {I put things in a box.. she takes them out. Over. and Over. Again.}

- Moving with a one year old, while filling Pretty Little Elm orders, while still wanting to go to the pool every day every now and then... well... that is a problem. Ha! :)

Speaking of my little Etsy Shop - We are on BRICKYARD BUFFALO this week! It's kind of like a dream come true. Our Sparkle Bows are 40% off! :)

xoxo. Promise to post MUCH more pics of Em next time.. but until then - I post on Instagram all of the time! :) {prettylittleelm}
