This past weekend we moved from downtown Salt Lake. Part of me was sad, and part happy. I get sentimental about things and my heart was already missing the apartment that we have lived in this past year. We went through a lot this past year after Ellie was born so there are a lot of memories tied to it. It was the place we brought Ellie home and the only home she has known so far.

It was also such a special place to live being right by the conference center and temple square. We were able to do so many things this summer because of everything being so close. One of our favorite things was to go to the Concerts in the Park. I have a special place in my heart for the Salt Lake temple now. After living in Rexburg so close to the temple, I never thought I would be that close to a temple again. But we were even closer living in Salt Lake.

 I did love the area, but the apartment was a bit of a trial sometimes. We went through bed bugs right when we moved in a year ago (the neighbor upstairs had them and they came down to us). Ellie was still in the hospital and it was pretty traumatic for me and I am still terrified of ever getting them again. It took almost 4 months to get rid of them and we went through washing ALL of our clothes and blankets ect. many times. If you ever get bed bugs, call me because I am pretty sure I know everything about them now after reading every article on the internet. Our apartment was also 80 degrees year round, because of the pipes in the building. Also, we went through cockroaches this summer. I also know everything about them now. I hate pests, and have lost more sleep over them than my baby. Oh and we didn't have a washer and dryer, so I am in heaven to have that luxury at our new place. Oh and no dishwasher. Even though we had all those things the apartment was still a huge blessing to us at that time.

Ok, back to moving week. It was pretty exhausting not only for us, but Ellie too. I found her passed out sleeping quite a few times. She never does this and fights sleep so much.

Right before moving..

 Ellie had fallen asleep on the way, so when we got to our new apartment I just found one of my sweaters to lay her on.
I forget how exhausting moving is!
