Bay of Beige

April 27th


My current moving alert isn’t red. Or orange. It’s beige. I’m surrounded by beige. Boxes, boxes everywhere. It’s mayhem.



My happy spin on the current homeland Code Beige!: packing is a lot of fun for a girl who loves to organize. I currently own only socks with pairs. Only towels, pillow cases and white T-shirts without that random mascara stain. Only earrings that I’ll actually wear. Only shoes I really love. Only dishes, books, fabric, yarn, plants, and furniture that I plan on using for a very, very long time.

T-minus 56 hours left in Phoenix. Time to write a new story!

May the movers be gentle,

  1. Wow! Can’t believe you’re moving – so soon! Best of luck, Kel! I hope to keep in touch. ~D

  2. May the movers be gentle indeed!

    I hate the smell of cardboard.

  3. Aaaaaaaa! What a windows-down-music-blazing-hair-blowing-heart-freeing ride that is going to be! My heart beats just a little faster thinking about it…makes me smile for you, Friend!

  4. Wowza, Kelli. You’re outta here?! Man, that’s wild. but Congrats!

    Bummed I didn’t get a chance to catch up with you since I’ve been back from NY a few weeks ago. But I’m stoked about this next phase you’re about to embark on. Reminds me of when I moved down to AZ more than 5 years ago (?!) not knowing anyone or anything. A couple friends of mine have since moved out of Phx and ended up moving to Ft. Collins (after taking a 4-month converted van ride across the US and Canada) and are way happy they did.

    Alas, my official time out here in the desert is waning as well (where I move to is still tbd), but my sincere best to you, Kelli. You’ll rock Colorado. And thanks again for being one of the first few folks to welcome me to AZ. Seems like forever ago, but I still appreciate that I met great people right at the outset.

    Cheers and many well-crafted Colorado beers,


  5. A new look for the blog too… šŸ˜€

  6. Best wishes!!!

  7. I’m thinking of you constantly right now! I’m so excited for this move! If you’re on the road and want to chat – give me a call. And then, when you get there, let me know you got there safe. I can’t wait to come visit you šŸ™‚ Exciting times, doll…

  8. Good luck with the move! Enjoy every crazy second of it all!

  9. Byeee, again. I’m in IN right now visiting my mom and have a weak signal so this may be my last comment before you go. Drive safely, have fun, smooth move to you, Kelli…

  10. Good luck on your move! Can’t wait to see what the next chapter brings!

  11. Packing and get rid of unuseful stuff can be nice and even funny sometimes…..but girl, I really don’t envy you when the time to un-pack and put everything in order will come!
    Drive safely to your new home, don’t get me worried, ok?
    P.S. just out of curiosity…..where will Matt stay when you’ll be far away?

  12. Safe travels, my friend. Enjoy the journey and let us know that you’ve made it safely! šŸ™‚


  13. I feel like a broken record saying this again, but I am so excited for you!

    I am having a “pretend” move to do much of the same decluttering. It feels heavenly, doesn’t it?

    Safe travels, my sweet…

  14. It’s creepin up fast! Ahhh- I kinda love moving. It’s a great way to de-clutter šŸ™‚

  15. Be safe in your travels. I can’t wait to hear about your new adventures in the beautiful state of Colorado! One of my favorite places. (((hugs)))

  16. How exciting! A new adventure, and surely things won’t be beige for long. šŸ™‚
