Amy Roloff from LPBW Gives Moving Update as She Continues to Transfer Her Stuff from the Farm to Her New Home
Amy Roloff said goodbye to the family farm she called home for over three decades. Relieved to start a new chapter in her life, Amy is packed and ready to settle into her new house.
It's been almost four years since Amy and Matt Roloff's divorce. Since it's a bittersweet transition for the matriarch to put the family farm in her rearview, Amy shared her experience.
PACKED TO THE RAFTERS
Amy's trusted Ford Escape had been tasked with hauling her belongings to their new home. Going back and forth without a hitch, Amy gushed that her beloved car "has been great, and still is."
Taking a moment to appreciate what her Ford had been a part of in the past, and was at that very moment, Amy took a picture of the car's open trunk stashed with moving boxes and other items.
AN INDEPENDENT MOVER
Over 30 years, Amy gathered her fair share of things, so she tackled the task of moving solo. Going through everything brought back a flood of memories while raising four children with her ex Matt Roloff.
It was "hard and tough purging," but having worked through it made Amy feel a sense of relief and thankfulness, as she wrote:
“I’m thrilled to see some light at the end of this long journey of moving, purging, packing and moving into my new house. Woohoo!”
ALWAYS BY HER SIDE

This car of mine #fordescape I love and has been great, and still is, in helping me move and so much more! I’m a @ford girl true and true. Its so doing its job hauling all the things I’m taking from the farm house to my new house. And it’s back and forth and back and forth. And yes, I’m doing most of it myself - after 30 years - I’m going through everything and oh what memories come flooding my mind of a lot of things that went on in this house raising four kids. And I’m thankful I got to do it though it’s been hard and tough purging. Oh I’m sure I’ll be doing more once I get ‘stuff’ to my new house thinking ‘why did I pack this’ 😳. Anyway, Felix doesn’t leave my side. I think he wants to make sure I don’t leave him behind. What that little guy doesn’t know - absolutely not and has been the best for me! 🐾💙🐾. I’m thrilled to see some light at the end of this long journey of moving, purging, packing and moving into my new house. Woohoo! Sometimes I don’t know whether to jump up and yell ‘Hooray’ or cry. I do know I feel relieved. More adventures to explore, plan for all the while being grateful Chris is by my side rooting for me and helping so much. He has been tremendous. ♥️. So I see the light at the end of this tunnel and I think I’ll make my end date- end of February. Yippee! 😊. #moving #oldtonewhouse #purge #toomuchstuff #itshappening #goodfeeling #amyroloffssecondact #livinglife #thememories #roomtomakemore
Leaving the memory-filled house, she called home for decades made for its mix of emotions. While she worked through the move by herself, her fiancé had been right by her side offering support.
Having been a "tremendous" help, Amy said Chris Marek is in her corner, "rooting" for her and added:
“So I see the light at the end of this tunnel and I think I’ll make my end date- end of February. Yippee! ?."
Another one who hasn't left Amy's side is her best furry friend, Felix. Leaving nothing to chance, Felix decided to make himself comfortable in the car, so he doesn't get left behind.
Amy's share comes just as an exclusive trailer for the new season of "Little People, Big World," which returns for a brand new season on March 31, aired.
In the exclusive clip shared by PEOPLE, Amy said that "plans changed" after she and Matt initially thought they would grow old together on the farm.
Having moved on with Chris, the pair are doing their best when it comes to "family things," and they are "determined" to make things work because that's what families do.
A HAPPY AND SAD TIME

The last two weeks have been a roller coaster ride. Happy and sad. Chris asked me to marry him and I couldn’t be happier - I said Yes. ❤️ and so excited and looking forward to continuing our journey together. 😊💍 So sad because A few days later my father told me mom was in the hospital and a day later my sister told me mom had passed away. She died on the 24th. My heart broke, I cried and sadness came upon me. I didn’t know what emotions to feel. Happy one moment sad the next. The woman who raised and taught me so much and loved me along w/ my dad passed away. She isn’t here anymore. I won’t be able to see and talk to her. And yet she’s not in pain and hurting anymore either. She lived a good life with my Dad. She didn’t have to go in a home but was able to stay in her home until she died. She would have been 87 years old and my parents would have been married 67 years on the 3rd. I’ll miss her a lot. I’ll miss not seeing her when I go back home - her strong feisty ways along with her gentle soft loving heart. I’m thankful for so much because of my Mom. I’m thankful she believed and had faith and know she’s with Jesus now. I’m thankful I got to talk to her on Sunday before she went to the hospital and then passed away. I know she’ll never stop loving me and is proud of me, I’m thankful all my kids got to go to Michigan last summer and see her and my dad and she got to meet her great grand kids. She was happy because of that. ❤️ I’m sad because I won’t be able to see and talk to her anymore and yet happy because she’s home with the Lord. I pray for my Dad. He’s by himself and He misses her so much. He’ll be 91 soon and he lost his friend, his wife and the person he’s known for over 70 years and been married to for 67 years ❤️ Even in my mom’s passing she is lovingly teaching and reminding me- life is but a moment. Be and do your best today and if tomorrow comes do it again. Mom, I love you ❤️ always. 2 Timothy 4:7-8
Amy didn't think she would tie the not again. But having decided to take the leap left her absolutely "thrilled." However, less than two weeks later, Amy's mom Patricia passed away after being hospitalized with heart problems.

My trips to Michigan now,ever since I left and moved to get married 31 years ago, are about moments I can cherish and take back w/ me to Oregon. It’s like having a little piece of Michigan with me all the time. 🌻💙🏡💙🌻. This time the moments meant so much more- maybe because I’m not so sure when the next time I’ll get to share a day, a conversation, a meal ... w/ my Mom and Dad. As I get older and look back and see how much time has gone by to how many days I have to look forward to - not so much the # of days but more in being sure I’m grateful for the moment I have right now. I’m so thankful I just got to hang out w/ my parents, and just be with them. I loved that Chris was by my side and able to come out again and share in the moment and hang out w/ me too. Sharing, gathering, thankful for now. ❤️🌻 Moments, no matter what goes on or happens in your life, good and bad, happy or unhappy, I think there is always room to gather... to love, have hope, know Joy, forgiveness, embrace, agree, disagree, love more... to make meaningful moments. Because they matter, have value and purpose in our life. I’m thankful I got to make more moments with my mom and dad to bank in my memory and Chris was w/ me. ❤️😊❤️ My mom is hanging in there. She’s still able to get around a little - she’s determined and her mind is strong but her body is weak. Just try to take time to appreciate moments everyday before they slip away. Love to you all 🌻❤️😊❤️🌻 #amyroloffssecondact #michigangirl #lovemyfamily #travelswithamyandchris
Although it was devastating news, Amy said that she will always cherish the memories, and reminded her that "life is a gift."
During the last weekend in October, Amy Roloff and her family went to her mother's gravesite in Michigan for a celebration of her life.
The reality star called the get-together an "amazing gift" because she learned more about her mother and how she was on a daily basis. When Amy married the first time, she moved from Michigan to California, so her wings spread far away from her childhood home.
