On the road again...

We're doing it.  We're moving again.

I know.

Trust me, I know.

No, no.  I hear you. Really, I do. 

This is too much.


We're on the road again, the presses and I, and we're coming back home to North Carolina.  It's a bittersweet reminder to me to never get too attached to a new city, home, or neighborhood {considering we've moved 3 times in the last 4 years}, but I am over the moon happy about this next move. 

Husband's company has asked for his expertise in Wake Forest, North Carolina after only 2 years in Georgia.  It took every ounce of self control on my part to hold back and be a responsible adult to say, "well, hunny, is that what you want?" All the while freaking out and losing the ability to stand up.

North Carolina is home.  If you've ever had to move around as much as I have, you'll know that home is where you make it and who you come home to.  It's what I've said countless times to help keep the blistering moves positive in my mind, but I should really add a caveat to that phrase: Home is where you make it, and who you come home to, in a place that you love.  And I love North Carolina.

Papa and Mama Bear Seidl moved us there my second year of Highshool {even though that was awful at first...}, and I have always considered NC the best part of my life.  I got to grow up with friends that I still consider a huge part of my life, go to college by the beach, and be downright reckless on Dad's tab. 

We put our home in Georgia on the market the first week of January and accepted an offer 3 weeks later.  For full asking price.  We close on this house on Monday and are moving in with my parents {holla!  Nothing like a 30yr old, her hubby AND baby living with her parents till we can find a new house!}.  And you know what?  I can't wait. 

I can't wait to bring my baby girl to the beaches of North Carolina that I romped around in for so many years.  I can't wait to walk the neighborhoods and look up to the North Carolina sky.  I can't wait to see all my good friends that I haven't been able to be around since our crazy moves.  And I can't wait to just come home.


What this means for Flutter Letterpress:

Yes, of course many of you might be asking this. 

It means that I'll be on hiatus.  Again.  I know, I know. Not ideal.  Trust me, I wish I could do this any other way.  Without having another home to move the presses right into, they'll have to be in storage {it kills me to type this} until I can find their next home with us.  I am no longer taking custom letterpress orders.  I do still have some pre-printed stationery available for sale in the Etsy shop, however, that I can ship out immediately. 

I'll provide an update as soon as I'm back up and running with Gable and Beux, I promise.  I suspect around mid-March we'll have a place to finally call ours. 

Until then, dear readers, you may be getting quite a few posts about house hunting... and not all of them will be pretty.  This is hard work!
