in working out the plans (of which there were many) of moving to whidbey island, one surfaced as the way we could make the entire situation the most amount of elaborate possible….so we chose that one. it involved unloading a storage unit full of our stuff from one of the emotionally heaviest years of our lives into a giant (for me it was big) rental box truck and driving it across the country where it would be married with its sister storage unit that contains (we would find out after we carried out this planned obsurdity) almost identical items to the items in the truck (minus the emotional heaveyness)

we make it a point label all of our boxes. we are actual sticklers about it. we do this to make unpacking more awesome? regardless of why, here are a few that we captured in our latest stuff shuffle.
