My SO owns a home which I will be moving into in April (end of March…). Since he already lives there and I spend most of my time there, I am going to be slowly moving things over to make that final moving day go a lot faster.
Today I bring over the first batch of boxes. (yay!)
Last night when I was packing them I suddenly realized, once I move in, I am going to be living with this man for the rest of my life. I can’t tell you how much thought I’ve put into this move (he even says I overthink everything). It must just be one of those things that you can think about it all you want, but actually doing it is different.
Anyone else have those moments where you suddenly realize the extent of the decision you are making? Whether it’s moving in with your SO or engagement or the actual marriage.

Funny timing! I just had this realization on Sunday! Been with my SO for 7 years almost and as ready as I am for the whole change, I don’t think it hit me fully until now. He’s a police officer and gets his next “assignment” of a location on March 1 (I found this out Sunday), that he has to stay at for a minimum of 3 years. I thought about it and said to myself, “wow, he’ll be there until April 2014, we’ll be married by the end of that time.”
…..commence total freakout! We’d been waiting for this decision on location for so long and now that it’s here, everything seems scary-real. Enjoy moving!! I can’t wait for that day 🙂

I had the same feeling when I moved in with SO six months ago, like “This is it, we’ll be living together for the rest of our lives”. It was a good feeling though, and I still feel the same way 🙂

I have these feelings here and there, but I think it’ll hit me big once we finally get our own place together. We were aiming for this month or next, but J was laid off from work so it’s been pushed back.
It’s exciting though and it’s great to have something to look forward to – spending each day with the man you love.

I still get that feeling and we’ve been married for 4 months (loving together 8 months)!

Wow, errie timing on this for several of us!
I came to this realization the other night as we were taking a ride to the store. It was just the two of us and we were talking about stuff we needed to pick up, and I was just like “Wow, this is it. This is the rest of my life.” It felt incredibly comforting and surreal. We’ve been living together for 10 months now, and the growth that we’ve made as a couple over the past two months has been incredible. The intimacy we’ve experienced has really given me those “ah-ha!” moments.
Best part of it was a text I sent him last week. I said “Hey babe. I’ve felt really really close to you lately. I can’t pinpoint what started it, but it feels phenominal.” His reply, “Glad to have u aboard, babe.” So funny that although IM the one who is waiting, he’s had these super close feelings all along 🙂

Yeah. It’s a big move and pretty scary (but so exciting at the same time).
Though Im a little opposite, I’m the one who owns my own home and SO will be moving in with me when we get married. I find myself being a little selfish with my stuff, my space, and my time. I’m gradually learning that I need to “make room” for him and to compromise. It’s going to be a challenge to decide what stuff stays what stuff goes into storage. I think the whole process would be easier if we were moving into a place that was new to both of us so that no one has staked their territory yet.

I did it in October with my S.O.
It was exciting but I miss my cute little condo a bit 🙁

I’m NOT going to miss my apartment (it’s really not all that great), and a lot of his stuff is actually better than mine!
We’re planning on having a garage sale and luckily the stuff that I have suggested he get rid of or replace with something of mine he agrees with. So happy!

yes, i have them a lot when i’m with my mister. we’re long distance at the moment so whenever we spend an extended period of time together and we get that small peek into how life is with each other, i have that whole “whoa…this is who i’m going to be with. FOREVER. THIS WILL BE MY LIFE!” conversation with myself. sometimes it freaks me out but mostly it amuses me. its somewhat calming.

Aw, it was nice to see this post. I have been thinking about this alot lately and wondering if I am just weird for feeling like omgosh… I will no longer leave and go back home to mama and daddy. I will be married to and belong to a WHOLE NEW BALL Game!! WOW!!! Its almost scary to be honest!!!!

I (we) have definitely had this the first time we moved in together and another right after the birth of our son. I was actually just thinking this again last night, it brought a big smile to my face.

Yes – I’m right there with you. My SO and I are planning to move in together but at MY place. As soon as his house rents. It’s exciting but I admit I’m nervous. He’s got some weird habits….but I suppose we all do.
We live an hour apart now and spend weekends together, alternating between the two. I know it would be even harder on me if I were the one moving. But, it’s hard either way…change is always like that.
But, I want to be with him and I’m excited about this too. I’m very independent and having been divorced for almost 3 years, I’ve gotten kind of set in my ways.
It’s perfectly normal to feel this way.
