For those of you who follow along on Instagram, you may have noticed a couple of different hints towards moving/packing. Well, the time is here! John and I are officially moving out of our first “home” in Champaign.
Not only are we moving places, we’re moving towns!
La Grange, IL.
After living in the Champaign area my entire life, I am extremely excited for a new adventure in La Grange, IL. John has accepted a job there as a Mortgage Lender with the JP Morgan Chase. With so many of my wedding bookings in the Chicagoland area, this opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time.
But do not worry… for those of you in the Champaign area, I will be here.. LOTS. I have several weddings here this year and next. Champaign has a special place in my heart and I look forward to my frequent visits here for work and for fun!
Also, readers who are familiar with the La Grange area, any must-do’s for us newbies?
Over the last couple of days, I’ve realized something. John and I have A LOT of stuff! Luckily, I have wonderful friends who have helped make the process easier by helping pack and just being around through it all.
It will be bittersweet to officially move out of the place that has meant so much to us these last two years. This home is where we began living with one another, adopted both of our beloved doggies and had a taste of what life is like together.
Similar to our current rental, we found a house that we will be renting the bottom floor of in the La Grange area! After living in a “house-like” apartment for two years, John and I are so excited to have found another place like it!
If you know me, you know I love decorating so I am already thinking about what to put where in the new place. There’s probably a pretty good chance I’ll hang photos and decorate bookshelves before unpacking the essentials like dishes!
