The Move

Scott and I got back from our honeymoon on October 29 and were greeted with snow when we landed in DC.  We knew we had a lot to accomplish before our move to New York on Halloween.  Between the amount to get done and the weather, we felt like the honeymoon was long gone by the time we caught our cab from Reagan. But we were both so excited to get to New York, our first home together and just to be settled that we just kept moving.

So we managed to fit family time, church, Matron of Honor duties, and packing my parents basement (with their help) and Scott’s apartment into a U-Haul into 36 hours.  It was such a whirlwind!  We made two stops on our way out of town – Bed, Bath and Beyond for essentials and Ikea for some much-needed storage for the new apartment.  Navigating parking lots, turnpikes, New York City streets and having to re-load the U-Haul at each store was great bonding for me and Scott.  I was actually very pleased with how well we handled everything together.  But picking out an armoire from Ikea was probably our first real compromise as a married couple! 🙂

When we got to the city we met up with Scott’s parents and several of our friends also came to help us schlep our stuff in.  We were so blessed to have so much help moving everything in and to have such a warm welcome waiting for us.  It put me at ease to have the move be full of laughter and wedding talk and cupcakes!  After some pizza and beers everyone left and it was just me and Scott and the following scene…

Scott left to return the U-Haul (without much success, unfortunately) and I was left to tackle the apartment – I started with the kitchen, of course.  I threw on some Michael Jackson and got down to business.  It was so wonderful to unpack and find a home for all of the beautiful gifts we have received over the past year.  When Scott finally returned we unpacked into the wee hours of the morning.  It was so sweet to have our first night together in our new home.
