    Girl, I hear you! It is so easy to focus on the negative and forget the great things we have, this is some awesome perspective! And can't wait to see what you guys decide on for your new place! šŸ™‚

    Aww it's so bittersweet right?! We also moved from a studio apartment with a parking garage, elevator, e.t.c. But can I just tell you how amazing it is to pull up in your driveway and carry in groceries.. you'll never look back lol

    We live in a townhouse and sometimes I get so antsy to move, but then I think back and I truly love what we have made our home. Our friends always gather at our place, every Sunday there's someone visiting and it's so fun. Ethan loves the swimming pool and I love that he's able to do so many fun things in our complex with his friends. It's great to reflect on these things rather than wanting more. I love your perspective on it.

    Yes, the good is always there, you just have to take the time to find it. It's so much easier to find the bad. We have outgrown our tiny townhouse, but are saving up to buy, so are stuck in it for a little bit longer…and I find myself nit picking it every single day. It's exhausting!! So what if my office is the kitchen table our deck is covered in some kind of green grossness? This is the home we became a family in šŸ™‚ I know your memories will always be very special in your studio.

    Oh my gosh, I understand! I haven lived downtown for years and happily enjoyed all the amenities that come with that (mainly lifestyle based). My first place downtown, I lived by myself in a studio. But since I lived alone it wasn't too big of a deal. However, the place we lived in Portland before coming down here wasn't a "studio" (so they said) but a one bedroom but the one bedroom didn't have a full door. And my husband and I had opposite sleep schedules (he's an early bird, i'm a night owl). So omg, we CRAVVEEDDDD doors after awhile. It was legit hard (I can't even imagine with a little one). We have doors now but I'm still in a city one bedroom and though I really like it, I also can easily fantasize about a backyard, garage and actual dining room. Excited for you!!!!

    How did I miss that you were here in Orlando? Crazy! But yes, I feel you on having doors. You never realize how much you take the little things for granted. Super excited for you to move into your new place! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

    I remember moving from an apartment to a house and it is such a fun and exciting time!!!! I like to remember the good about all the places I have lived, but you are right. When you are ready for something new, especially when the new is bigger and going to be more complaint to your lifestyle now compared to when you moved in…it is easy to get caught up in the bad. Soak up the sunshine and your views for a few more weeks while getting exciting about a new adventure!!!

    I really need this right now. šŸ™‚ I can't wait to live in a house with Chris someday. The Dallas market is just way too hot right now for us to do it for our upcoming move, but I'm crossing my fingers that it'll be soon!

    Moving is super exciting! We're looking at townhouses right now, a small step up from our teeny duplex. I totally get what you mean, focusing on the bad and forgetting the good.

    I am SOOOOOO excited for you!!!! After years of living in an apartment or condo, when we finally moved into our first ever house I felt like a real adult ha šŸ˜‰ The space is amazing, the privacy is amazing, and having a place to grow into is just the best. Can't wait to follow along in your house-making journey!
