moving 101: PODS vs. UHAUL

Let me begin by saying, THANK GOD this move is over, and I don’t envy anyone who has to start this particular epic freaking journey anytime soon.  Good thing we like our new house, because I don’t plan on packing it up anywhere in the foreseeable future. 😂🙅‍♀️ That said, at the risk of sounding […]
