Life Post... Homesick

OOOOO gosh, am I homesick.
If you have followed this blog for some time, then you know we moved.
Moved, so my husband could stop working 70 hr weeks, be a father and go back to school full time.

We moved to re-group, and thought there would be no better place then the beach.

It's amazing living at the beach. I can open my office window and hear the ocean, I can actually hear it... the waves crashing, it's unreal. We can wear flip flops in December, wore them last night in fact.

Palm Trees are gorgeous, downtown Charleston is amazing. I love Southern Food and the sand between my toes. Charlotte adores her school, and so do we. I love hearing, "thank you ma'am"

However, I am also homesick.

I miss my friends, I miss my HOME, I miss my garden and my family. I miss Baltimore. I miss my beautiful hardwood floors, the kind made in 1940. I miss my exposed brick and THAT FEELING.
You know... the feeling you get when you are home.

  1. Oh Jessica, praying for you today. I comepletly understand your sentiments. It's such a hard thing, and sometimes overwhelming. prayers for you today that you would be peaceful even in the homesickness. it comes in waves i think and some days are harder than others. have a blessed day!

  2. I guess this time of year makes it harder to be away. I hope you are able to get home for the holidays!

    This is such an exciting part of the story you will tell to your children and grandchildren. You make it sound so wonderful! I'm ready to move to Charleston!!

  3. Don't know if this is your current home or previous home - but it looks adorable. I hate those homesick days...sending prayers your way!

  4. So sorry. Been there. I remember how I missed my little home back in California when we moved to NC 12 years ago. I loved that little house and could still remember how it felt... It might help to plan a trip home when you can, even if it's just a long weekend. It does get easier as time goes along.

  5. Aw Jess what doesn't kill us makes us stronger...lived in Utah a while while my family was in Illinois. It was rough, but sounds like you have a little amazing family that is there for you!


  6. This post makes me think twice about ever wanting to move. I'm sure as time goes by it will get easier, but really who am I to say. I will just say a prayer that it does for you.

  7. It is very possible (nearly 95% possible) that we will be doing the same thing within the year. My husband is looking at a few schools (Purdue, Clemson and VA Tech) to pursue his PhD and it may be a 3+ year committment (which includes a move). I'm not going to lie...very nervous and not exactly thrilled about being 6+ hours away from family here in MD.

    Would love to chat with you more about it!!!


Thanks for leaving some sweet PBD love!
