Take 3: Red, Orange, and Yellow Summer

July 20, 2011

What a WHIRLWIND this past week has been. I am so physically and emotionally drained. It was so difficult to say goodbyes, and pack up our life. I am so happy to have arrived to GA safely though with my little family. That is all that matters. However, my husband and I swear we will never move again!… even though its bound to happen since we are renting a home, until we decide where we want to settle. I was seriously tempted to leave everything I own behind and live a simpler life. I have resolved to do so in some ways! πŸ™‚ 
I have so much of you all to catch up with! I will be back in full swing soon, but for now, enjoy this summer post!

  • I love your blog!!

  • Striking photos! Such pretty color.

    Congrats on the move!! We are in the same boat, except we’re having to stay at my in-laws because our closing has gone awry so many times. We’re DEFINITELY never moving again. Ugh!

  • glad you made it safe and sound!! good luck with unpacking and getting settled πŸ™‚

  • So great you made it Anna! Although i know it takes some time, until everything finds it’s place again. Do take a little rest if you can, am sending all the best for a lovely new time in the new home! xx

  • So glad to hear you’re finally in GA! I’m sure it was bittersweet leaving the fam and friends. I’ve moved over 12 times and know that it’s exhausting to move just my stuff. I can’t imagine moving a whole house! Sometimes it does make you want to leave all of belongings behind and start clean! I totally understand that!

  • So glad the move went well! It’s always hard saying goodbyes, and moving can be such a headache Even when you live in a tiny apartment, while moving you realize how much STUFF you have every where. It’s amazing! I left so many things behind that just weren’t worth moving. Good luck with the simpler life.


  • So glad you made it safe! πŸ˜€

    When I’m working on decluttering, I pretend I’m moving. Helps to put in perspective what truly is important.

  • Happy you’re nearly settled! I thought about you the other day when my Husband was talking about moving out of state. I’d be sad to leave family, but I thought “well Anna did it and didn’t bat an eye” πŸ˜‰

  • Love the colours! The yellow photo melts my heart!

    Hope you don’t have trouble getting settled! Moving can be so tough!

  • I moved into an apartment early this year, and I’m going to moving again this month (for school)…so I know how you feel. Well, sort of – I imagine it would be harder with kids. Hope you and your family settle in quickly.
    O, and thanks for featuring my pic πŸ™‚

  • First love the last photo! Congrats on the big move though bittersweet!

  • moving is always stressful but you did it! and now you can make it your home πŸ™‚ I always opt to clear out the clutter because it makes room for new things πŸ™‚ or less things lol.

    PS I am special requesting pics of GA- I hear its gorgeous in the fall there.

  • Happy to hear you made it safe and sound- moving stinks but it’s so nice once you get settled in a brand new home. Gorgeous post!

  • glad to hear that you’re ok and settled!

  • glad the move went smooth. I hope you get settled soon!

  • Glad you made it safely Anna! Moving is so hard, it definitely brings to question the “stuff” you hang on to.

    Aaahhh citrus, such sweet tangy goodness – love it!

  • Those colors are so pretty! Hope you are settling in – I know that’s some serious hard work!

  • Surviving a move is reason to celebrate! Hot American Red, Orange, and Yellow Summer.

    good luck in your new place, and with your new life πŸ™‚

    I hate goodbyes too…so hard!

  • exciting times!! Glad everything worked out! have a nice rest now xo

  • Aww, Anna! Glad you’re there safe and I hope all the unpacking goes well. My fam is about to move also, so we’ll be right there with ya (:

  • so glad to hear your move went well! it’s exciting and bittersweet at the same time… i’m actually getting ready to move too, and i’m having a little bit of anxiety over it! lol

  • glad to hear that you are safe and sound after your move πŸ™‚

  • That summer fruit looks so nice right now! Good to hear you and your family arrived safely πŸ™‚

  • Glad it went well! πŸ™‚ I’m hungry for some fruit now~!

  • Such a pretty post πŸ™‚ I am glad to hear that you all made it safely. Just think of your “goodbyes” as “see you laters”. Distance does make it challenging and it won’t be the same but the people who are important to you will always be there πŸ™‚ xoxoxo brynn

  • red and yellow, black and white, those are precious in my sight πŸ™‚ ha… ok, that was dorky.

    georgia? you’re already there! wow. what a big week for you guys! hope all goes well with the move, and that you start to get excited for the adventures ahead! we are moving in two weeks ourselves. yuck.

  • Hope you enjoy your new space. Moving can be tough, but a new adventure always comes out of it! Love the pictures, so very summery.

  • yay for the move..ugh I hate packing with passion. Over the years living at our home, we been adding so many decor and things that I cant imagine what’s it like to pack up and move!

    it has been sooo hot and humid..i cant imagine moving in this weather!!!!!

    have a great weekend!

  • Anna i was SO happy to hear the move was a grand success! touch down cheers!!!!! the after effects of a move such as this pretty much leave me feeling the same way. Sean & i have been in our little loft for almost 5 years now but want to move sometime before it hits the 6 mark. already dreading the packing and stuff. woah! breath a sigh of relief girl, that parts over and now time to nest….it’s the best part anyways. much love and glorious summertime tasties to look at up there.
