Moving, part 2

Because we had a pretty long time between the time our bid was accepted on our new house (early November) and our move-in date (mid-February), we also had plenty of time to emotionally – and actually – prepare for the move.

We chose to move on a long weekend (Presidents Day), and when the date arrived we opted to spend our last night in a very West Portal way – by getting ice cream at the neighborhood institution, Shaws. The next morning Avery and I took one last WP Starbucks run, chronicling our trip on video (because that’s what Gen Zers do), and then posing for pics. There were fewer tears than I expected, and it wasn’t even as hard as I thought it would be when we went back a few days later for our last good-byes. Time for the next chapter!
