I can't believe I'm writing this post because it honestly felt like the day we would sell the house I grew up in and inherited when my mom passed away would never really come.  It was a lot of work and required help from family, hours spent out in the hot Texas sun, and a couple of tears shed by me.  Hurricane Harvey also hit the weekend before we were supposed to close, so that caused some additional stresses and delays.

I remember turning to Kyle about a year ago in a department store and telling him that I could not believe denim skirts were coming back into style.  I thought that trend would be left far behind us along with plastic choker necklaces, crimped hair and glitter eyeshadow.  Honestly, I'm shocked my mother let me out of the house wearing some of the trends that were popular in the 90s and early 2000s.

Unfortunately it happens for Kyle and I this time every year.  We fall off the healthy eating wagon and back into some of our bad eating habits.  For those of you who don't know, Kyle and I have moved five times in the past four years and I know it shouldn't be an excuse or crutch for poor choices, but somehow it manages to creep up on us and every year after we move we look at each other and ask "what in the world have we been doing?!"
