So it’s official. We’re moving. I’ve hinted at the fact that I’ve had a lot on my mind and plate and now I can finally tell you it’s because we are moving. I would have mentioned it sooner, but figuring out our housing situation has been an exhausting and stressful experience, that has taken far longer than any of us would have liked.
So, after 13 years in sunny Lala Land, we are moving up North to the city by the Bay. Before Los Angeles, I moved more times than I can count on two hands, so I have plenty of experience. However, this will be our first time moving with kids. I’m not too concerned about our baby, who will be pretty much OK as long as he has me, some food and gets to sleep. I’m more concerned for my big boy (not really that big, just 4.5). I know I have to involve him, get his room set up quickly, etc. In addition I’ve signed him up for camp, to start literally 2 days after we get there. I’m hoping that will allow him to make friends quickly and also get him having fun from the start. Any more great tips for a smooth move with kids?
Now, the count down and packing begins. While packing is no fun, we are looking at it as an opportunity to purge, which in itself can be quite liberating. If you know of any good packing checklist, please do let me know. I do like a good list!
I’m contemplating starting a separate blog, about our adventures in setting up house, etc. What do you think? Separate blog, or just keep it all in one place? I’m a little reluctant to fill my photography blog with all that stuff. So far I’ve included party and kid related stuff because I know my readers and clients are mostly moms, so the content might be interesting to them, but not so sure about documenting my search for the perfect shower curtain would fit here.
And for all my LA clients and would be clients, not to worry. I will be making frequent trips back to LA to capture special moments with your lovely families.
