Thanks to U-Pack and RG partner Thumbtack for making life a whole lot easier on a very stressful day.

  • You know, you don’t me at all. I’ve read about your life since you blogged with NS and have always rooted for you and your family. This is the first time I’ve cried witnessing the parts of your life that you shared. Wishing you a happy road trip!

      Thank you Linda!!! (And thanks for sticking with me all these years, it means a LOT.)

  • Diane

    Oh Jordan. Been there, left a few houses and a few neighbors behind us throughout the years and it’s never easy. I cried watching this movie because I’ve cried just like you saying goodbye too. It’s HARD! I wish you and your family a wonderful life on the West Coast. Life will be good. Very good. xox

    • jordanreid

      Aw, thank you Diane!!

  • Nothing like trying not to cry at work. <3

  • Chantal

    Oh man, I’m crying…! Thanks for sharing this moving process with us and SO MUCH good luck for you next adventure. I’ve moved a bunch in my life and it never gets easier, but the hardest part is over. Now you get to say your hellos and build your new life in Cali! xoxo

    Oh man, this is just too much. It makes my heart hurt.

  • Hope Varnedoe

    wishing you safe travels – i can’t wait to read all about your adventures crossing the country.

  • Elizabeth Murphy

    Bon voyage Jordan! I loved the video, it definitely sums up moving day and all the emotion that is there. Looking forward to seeing what your lovely family gets up to out West.

  • OhThatLaura

    Onward and upward!

  • Anya Wyers

    First off, what a beautiful family you have, filled with so much love! It is so evident in the pictures and especially the video (cue tears for someone I don’t even personally know…yup!) how much love is in your life. You will always have the memories and you will always be creating new ones, even when you don’t realize it. (Remember the time we played in the huge trailer parked in front of our house? That was FUN!) Have a wonderful trip to your new home and your new adventures…I look very much forward to following your journey!

    • jordanreid

      anya, THANK YOU. this is such a wonderful perspective to have.

  • Audrey

    Just had to bust out a Kleenex to wipe my tears. Best of luck as you start your journey across the country. The west coast can’t wait to have you! Let me know if you need any help while you’re in LA. Would love to see you if you guys have any spare time. xo

    • jordanreid

  • Katie Kornstein

    please stop making me cry at work!! XOXO

    Hi Jordan <3 I've had the great pleasure of enjoying the story of your life as it unfolds, & I wanted to thank you for being brave enough to share it with all of us! You are so darling, & I know you & your sweet little family will love Northern California! I moved here from the East in 1990, & all the best things in my life have happened right here! Sending you blessings from Marin County! Best~Amanda

    • jordanreid

      thank you amanda!! i’m so excited (and living in marin is in our five-year plan, so maybe we’ll be neighbors one day.)

  • Sari Nickelsburg

    I’ve never even met you. WHY AM I CRYING OVER YOUR MOVING DAY VIDEO??? Best of luck with the move! Sincerely hope you packed the car with lots of Kleenex.

    Sweet, sweet video. Looking at the pictures of your babies made me think, this is the wonderful thing about being a mom and a wife and having these people to love, as long as you have them and they are ok and healthy, you are ok – complete. And then I remembered your tattoo and thought, “she totally already knows that.”
    And I bought the tank top. 🙂

  • Cathy

    Beautiful video! Your kids are so adorable. It’s a huge move! Have a safe trip out here and California welcomes you!

    xoxo

    Hi Jordan! Best of luck in your move….I know, strange question …but what is the song playing in the background towards the end of your video?

    • jordanreid

      the first song is one that kendrick wrote; the second one is the velvet underground’s “pale blue eyes.” and thank you 🙂 🙂

      • It was a great song choice…. I totally teared up at the end of that video!

  • Lisa

    Wow this is touching!! Thanks for sharing and best wishes to your beautiful little family!!
