homeless.


After 15 hours of scrubbing, scouring, vacuuming and steam cleaning, 2 swollen feet on this girl and 1 home inspection, we turned over our house keys and drove away from Aloha Avenue yesterday around 11am. 

We actually felt more relieved than sad after almost a week of sleeping on an air mattress and eating out of tupperware. We loved that little house and have so many sweet memories in it. But the stress of moving has been kind of intense (especially being 6.5 months pregnant!) and we're ready for some relaxing time in Maryland before we find our new home in Florida. 

And yes, we lived on Aloha Avenue. It was the perfect address and a little secret I've held for the past three years. Even our address was beautiful in Hawaii. 

We're in a hotel on base for the next few days while we wait for our flight out on Friday afternoon. Spending lots of time of time with friends and getting in some 'lasts'. Oh, and having a bed to sleep in is pure heaven. I slept like a rock last night. 

Thank you thank you thank you for all the prayers and sweet words this week. They've meant the world to us and we've certainly felt those prayers!

  14. I'm super sad that you guys that you can't live in Hawaii any more but SUPER excited you will be in Maryland! I'm from that area. Not that we will ever know each other (I wish :), but it makes me sleep better at night knowing a super cool blogger lives within 100 miles.
