The Davidges are headed south for the winter, South Louisiana to be exact. My husband, David, grew up in Hammond and always anticipated getting back to his roots. He’s been located in North Louisiana for 14 years now and after many conversations, contemplating what’s best for us, tears, etc, we are packing our bags.
Our one bedroom humble abode in Bossier City, Louisiana was a nice nesting area for us newlyweds. The location is what I truly liked best, and the fact that it was brand spanking new!
Our plan was to stay for 7 months, which somehow turned into 16 months. Plans, what are those?? I’m not complaining though. We aren’t the couple to jump into anything without really putting all of our thought, effort, and heart into it.
I quickly learned that my husband makes quite the packer and is truly excited about being “that guy” with a U-Haul. I believe his words were, “Davidges on the move.”
Moving has made me realize a few things…
1. Our homes are disgusting once you move all of the furniture out.
2. You can never have too many boxes.
3. True love is a family member or friend offering to help you pack.
Also, if my girlfriends lived a little closer. We definitely would have tried on all of my clothes and played “Trash or Keep” via Sex and the City. It’s probably one of my favorite scenes from the show, and who doesn’t love drinking champagne, playing dress up, and laughing until it hurts? Moving week started on Saturday during what seemed like the most hectic work schedule of my career. Since David was leaving Tuesday (and I was crazy busy with sessions), he began packing up furniture, and my office started to become non-existent. So , I had to get crafty and created a make shift office with my prop chair. It came in handy for two days.
I said adios to David and had two days to make sure everything was together. I have lived in North Louisiana my entire life minus that one summer I spent in Dallas, and it didn’t hit me until I was sitting in my empty apartment about to turn in our keys that this was it. *Insert anxiety here* This is my “I swear, I’m excited to move face…”One thing I know will help with the transition is that I will be in North Louisiana for two weeks every month for the next year. A “two weeks on, two weeks off” schedule, if you will. My family, friends, and clients will be a huge priority when I’m in town. I appreciate all of the encouraging words and the life we have made in Bossier City. Here’s to our next chapter! Oh, and finding a house…
