A BIG step

My lease is up in August and The Boy and I have been discussing the possibility of living together at that time. We are likely going to do it, but I have to admit, I'm scared. I would be moving into his place in New Jersey, but we would be consolidating our furniture and putting some things in storage. It is a huge step in our relationship and even though I am 100% sure about him (and he feels the same), there is just a lot of "unknown" associated with it. How will we adjust to being together 24/7? How will all of our stuff fit together? Will I get enough "me" time?

I'm scared, but also very excited. Aside from the practical things that thrill me (he has a washer/dryer, dishwasher, I would FINALLY have an entire room dedicated to being my home office, I would be able to buy a car, my rent would be half of what it is now, etc.), I look forward to building our own little family unit and a life together. I have wanted this for so long, and had a rough dating journey to get here and am beyond excited to finally be in love and have the security of knowing I've found my person and he found his.

Let's just hope I like being a Jersey Girl!

If you do, I am flying up there and smacking you. :)

It is a huge step, but it can be a good one. Husband and I lived together for a while. There is a honeymoon phase where everything is cute and fun. But three months into it, you start to see the little quirks that may drive you crazy.

Have the two of you talked about expectations, like cleaning cooking and other stuff? If one of you is a slob and the other is a neat freak, you need to get that out on the table, along with any other things.

I have a good feeling about the Boy and you!!!!
