When we moved into our apartment last January I did so alone.
(Well I had some help from family & friends) but the point is I moved in without The Husband.
I unpacked everything on my own.
I hung up his clothes just so I could smell his scent every time I went in the closet.
& I even unpacked his toiletries just so I could see his tooth brush next to mine.
Looking back on it now maybe this gallery wall of our wedding photographs was a bit much.
Our friends & family & even The Husband joke that it is a "shrine".
I guess it kinda is & I did over do it a bit but the fact of the matter is
it helped me not miss him as much while he was deployed.
Well today the "shrine" came down & got packed up.
We are moving yet again but this time we will both be around for it.
(Yay! & Happy squeal of excitement)
Some may be surprised by this but I actually have no plans to put this back up in our new place.
It is time to change things up, time to simplify, time to move on & time move in... together!
I get to see The Husband's face every day now, so no need for tons of photographs on the wall.
Plus I just realized, once I take all these photographs out of the frames
they'd make a wicked cool wedding album which we actually don't have yet...
