Goodbye Chicago ...


That's right folks ... we've moved!!! and as you can guess ... that is why I haven't blogged for a bit. (bad lisa!) It's just that it took a long time to sort through 150 boxes worth of stuff. Yup, you read that correctly ... one hundred and fifty! I have no clue as to how Taylor and I accumulated so so so so much stuff in our small place, but lo and behold, we did it! Oh well.

We'd like to yell a big "THANK YOU" to Allied Moving (esp Reebie Movers in Chicago) for all the hard work. Literally, they did all of the packing, loading and unloading. We didn't have to lift a finger. Honestly, Taylor and I felt so guilty and useless as we watched the guys sweat it out and haul our stuff. And it still boggles my mind as to why I still felt exhausted at the end of the move day. Excitement? Emotions? Nerves? *shrug* Who knows?


But it was just oh so excruciatingly difficult for me to leave our Chicago home. My heart almost broke to pieces when I saw the place empty. It brought tears to my eyes. We shared so much good food, thoughtful conversations, silly parties and cherished moments with our Chi-town family and friends. Plus, it's the only home Gaby has known! (Poor dog almost had a heart attack on the plane ride!)

So here is a last peek of our beautiful view (a.k.a. Gaby's lookout point).

(*sniff* *sniff*) Bye Soldier Field!

Well Chicago will never be the same without the Leeses and Princess Gabs - so how is the girl adjusting to CA - remember Gabs does not like to meet coyotes and racoons.
