    Moving out, going to live somewhere else and only taking with you what you need is like a dream for me. People I know had the chance to do this, for example when they started studying in a different city. They started all over.
    I alway wanted to do that, too, but I’m actually stuck in a huge flat with all the things my parents left now and I’m doing the opposite: Getting rid of things. I’m not starting over, but I’m developing.

    Thank you Maria for sharing!

  • elliecp May 10th, 2013 5:17 PM

    these pictures are gorgeous. I’d love to travel when I’m older, and love the idea of photographing the moving process…I love keeping my memories in the form of photographs.
    Perfect post, as always <3

    These are so beautiful. I know people always say this, but SERIOUSLY this is the best photo set ever xx

  • barbroxursox May 10th, 2013 6:33 PM

    Wow, these are all so beautiful! Whodathunk such an ordinary process that so many people do a certain times in their lives could be captured so beautifully.


  • lydiamerida May 10th, 2013 6:58 PM

    I’ve always dreamed of moving to Mexico but I don’t have any family or friends there, which kind of freaks me out…
    But anyways, I loved the whole atmosphere of this photo collection :)

  • darksideoftherainbow May 10th, 2013 7:12 PM

    this is absolutely beautiful. the balcony in picture 12 and all the plants and the clean walls and the beautiful floors were amazing and really made me nostalgic for the apartment we used to live in when i was a kid. good luck in your new home!

  • eremiomania May 10th, 2013 7:14 PM

    This is my favorite photo set so far. I’ve never moved before but I look forward to when I do.

  • Charlotte CallaGirl May 10th, 2013 7:21 PM

    This was beautiful, and I really loved the pictures. You did a great job with your message and idea!

  • abby111039 May 10th, 2013 7:26 PM

    I really loved how this expressed an almost positive side of moving. The whole atmosphere of these photos feels like new beginnings mixed with nostalgia and it was all just really beautiful. <3

    hecho de menos las dos cuidades (naci en Guad pero he visitado el DF) ahora vivo en NY y aunque son cuidades diferentes, te vas acostumbrar a la vida rapida. y ademas, puedes disfrutar de los helados de Coyoacan! te deseo lo mejor!

  • Abby in the Sky with Diamonds May 10th, 2013 10:14 PM

    Goodluck with this moving. You, your friend and yours dogs look lovely.
    The 10th is so beautiful.


  • glitter riot May 11th, 2013 3:16 PM

    I love this! I’m going to be moving out in 3 months and i’m going away to university in a new city and i’m terrified, but so so excited to be finally living on my own without my parents, just me. I know this is what I want to do, but I feel like i’m not completely capable of living on my own. I mean, I know how to cook and do laundry, but the comfort of always having my parents there in case I screw up is going to be gone.

  • Katzemuse May 11th, 2013 3:56 PM

    I am literally in the middle of the hellscape of moving right now. Seeing this photodiary reminded me of the beauty of change and that I’m going to get through it. Thank you again Rookie, for providing me with exactly what I need when I need it :)


  • broccoli May 11th, 2013 6:42 PM

    my parents are from mexico. Everytime i go visit, i always ask them if they can take me to mexico city but they always say no. I’m kind of sort of jealous. Beautiful photos!

  • jadeharley May 13th, 2013 3:00 PM

    This made me sob. I’m in that phase where I want to explore and not be trapped up at home. I want to see everything and I can’t do that here. Lovely photos.

  • Microbyte1 May 13th, 2013 7:28 PM

    wow, so beautiful

  • insteadofanelephant May 13th, 2013 11:20 PM

    This really touches me. I just graduated from college and moved from the town I not only called home for the last four years, but also learned about who I am. Moving is sad, good, stressful, cleansing, and necessary. Don’t forget the places you call or called home, your heart can be in many different places at once!

  • Valerie Violet May 14th, 2013 5:56 AM

    stunning, makes me want to go someplace and start over

  • marieb May 21st, 2013 1:14 AM

    This is great. I’m moving to Mexico, city to study my career in a few days. This pictures made me feel so identified and hopeful for change and all sort of new things! I love it.

  • SpencerBowie May 29th, 2013 7:43 PM

    Whoa! Your dude friends have the best style!!! I LOVE their jackets and stripes and poka dots and LOVE!!!!!!

    Anyhoo, have fun! Stay groovy!

  • speakthroughvision August 14th, 2013 7:16 PM
