In the near future

Well, now we are down to six weeks before we move. Crazy!!

A great thing that has happened in the last six weeks is that we have found someone, a reliable person, to rent our house while we are gone. We are so grateful and blessed to have that part over. Now we just have some cosmetic things to finish up around the house before we move, like the grout in the kitchen :), the crown molding in some rooms, and a few other things.

In a couple of weeks we are taking a trip up to Chicago to go apartment searching. It will be so nice to come back to TN knowing where we are going to live once we are in Chicago.

As of right now, we are trying to figure out what to take, what to leave, do we store things, do we sell things, how big of a uhaul do we need, and all those kind of things. This is such a big move for us. I still can not believe we are actually leaving Tennessee.

Onward we go,
Preston and Krystal


  1. Well, I know personally how frustrating it can be to pour your heart and soul into a blog about such an undertaking as moving away from your home only to have no one leave a comment on your post, SO...I'm leaving a comment. :) First of all, I really like your blog format. It makes me want to spruce mine up a bit. I stay in such a pouty state of mind out here it might do me some good to have a bright yellow background instead of that crappy old khaki I'm tired of looking at. Anyway, I look forward to reading AND COMMENTING on your blog journey and wish you both the best. I am so glad you all are getting to have this experience together, because trust me, the arrangement Jeremy and I have had to endure this summer has been no fun! I'm sure you all will miss your families and the mountains, but at the end of the day you will have each other and for that I am very envious! I can't wait to hear all about it! Happy home hunting in the windy city! :)

  2. You're so cute, Natasha! We are blessed to be doing this together. I'm sure it is difficult for you and Jeremy right now, but it will be over soon!

    I'm excited to go house hunting next week. I'll be sure to post photos and am looking forward to hearing your future comments!
