It has officially been 6 months since Lucas and I moved to the other side of the country. Where has the time literally gone?
Although we still have many more months (ahem... years) remaining here in New England, we have already learned a thing or two during our first PCS Moving experience. I’ve had a few friends reach out asking about how we’re settling in now that it’s been 6 months so I decided to write it all out. To those of you reading, who happen to also have had experiences moving to new homes, please let me know if you can relate to some of the lessons we learned!
Given that this was our very first PCS move, please know that we are NOT moving experts. This blog post was written solely based on our personal experiences of moving for the very first time. I’m deeply curious on whether or not others can relate to the lessons we’ve learned.
LESSON #1: Although moving can create obstacles, it can also create healthy boundaries.
LESSON #2: Staying connected isn’t as difficult as it seems in a world filled with expanding technology.
LESSON #3: Keeping familiar furniture can bring a sense of “home” sooner than starting fresh entirely.
LESSON #4: If you have movers, make sure to set aside the essentials in case they’re late (they’ll probably be late…).
LESSON #5: You’ll only start to love your new home if you allow yourself to.
Which reminds me of a BONUS lesson -- Time moves so much quicker than you think.
I honestly can’t believe that it’s already been 6 months since we moved to Boston. So far, we’re blessed and are still having a positive experience. In the 6 months that we’ve been living here, we’ve discovered that winter wasn’t as bad as we thought it was going to be (We actually LOVED the snow. The roads were more maintained than they would’ve been back home in Washington), and we also discovered that there is SO much to see and do in the Northeast!
Stay tuned for more New England content coming up once the weather starts getting warmer and the travel conditions hopefully start getting safer!
Let me know if you can relate to these moving lessons we learned!
