goodbye

• 32 comments •


Who doesn't like the novelty of staying at hotels? We've always loved to travel and hope it won't be too difficult to adjust to the new nomadic lifestyle. Having said that, it would have definitely been more convenient, for the both of us, to deal with the surgery and hospital visits if we still had a home. We left in a rush, and never really got to say goodbye.

The two of us had owned our house, together, for 4 years. Neither of us was crazy about the place. The layout, the wood, design, and wasted space were things we weren't ever fond of, but it was a home we made together and were sad to leave it. These are some photos we took while we were there, some old... some taken for the sale of it.

We took our walk-in closet for granted. 
It's going to be quite the adjustment to go from over 60 sq. ft of closet space to a back pack.

Considering all the scuzzy bathrooms we will most likely encounter during our travels, the ensuite will be sorely missed. Lament.





bye house. it's been real, peace out.

  10. i would die...or at least sacrifice a body part for that closet. i've decided that my closet is much much too small for a 22 year old girl who loves clothes.

    it sucks being sick period, but it's a least a bit better if you're home {i got super super sick when i first got to south africa a few years ago. i remember wailing on the bathroom floor that i just wanted to be home!} i hope you feel better soon so you can start enjoying those hotel rooms!

  13. Oh my word what a big house!! Ours would fit in it about 10 times!!!

    The bathroom & closet are wonderful... I'd miss them dearly too.

    I hope you're on the mend now... nothing worse than being somewhere strange when you're not well.

  22. Good luck adjusting to the backpack. You will have such a fantastic time!!

  23. We haven't done the whole house thing yet. I definitely miss one of my old apartments though. I totally relate about space issues. One of the things that keeps me away from homes is that I fear I'll just be rattling around in it. Not to mention more space means more to clean! I admire you for leaving it all behind.

    PS My goodness. I just got back from our little trip to California and was sad to hear you were hospitalized. Hope you're feeling much better :)

  30. I already knew you guys were fabulously wealthy. Stop showing off. I demand 100% more photos of the actual trip.

    I know you're delayed, but take pictures of the food court in the hospital or whatever while you're waiting.
