friday’s letters {packing edition}

Dear International Moving Company, Can you please come back to our flat and pack up all of the appliances and dishes we found yesterday? Yes, I know you asked us if that was everything, but I promise we didn’t know. You see, we never open that kitchen cupboard. Pllleeeaaasssee? Dear Packing, Even with most of our belongings out of our place and on their way to the United States, you still suck! Too bad we’ll be moving around every 6 months in the USA and we’ll have to pack up our stuff all over again. Dear Delta, We reunite again in exactly one week. My preferred airline is KLM and for some reason we didn’t book with them. Please be kind, Delta. And on time? Dear Husband, After one year in the UK, we’re moving home. Well, not DC home, but our home country. First stop, Chipotle. And then a Target run! Can’t wait. Dear Photobucket, You never work. That is all. Dear Blog Friends, I love getting messages from you all! It seriously makes my day.

Yummy coffee we had in Italy

  • Shar Martinez

    Thanks for visiting me! :)

    Moving around every 6 months! Wow! Packing is one of my LEAST favorite things to do unless it’s a beach trip! (^_^) Best wishes for your big move! :) We just had Chipotle last week (I posted about it :p)!

    Photobucket = ditto!

    So happy to be a new reader! :)

    Chipotle…. Yes, if I were out of the country for an extended period of time, I’d be stopping by the first Chipotle I saw. Good call! Good luck with the move!

    I agree with the packing. ESPECIALLY internationally! Moving around every six months you should be a pro after the first few and write a book of tips! And yay for Target runs! When I went home to visit this summer that was the first place I went to stock up! Hope the move goes smoothly for you!

  • Jessica

    Ah moving time… let the fun begin. ;) We’ve been in one spot for several years now, but I remember the days!

    I’m a new follower via the GFC blog hop. I’d love it if you would return the follow and also link up to the Weekend Blog Hop.
