Cassie Randolph is embarking on a new chapter in life.

After living with her sister for the past two years, Michelle Randolph, in their shared Los Angeles apartment, the former Bachelor contestant announced on Friday that the siblings have gone their separate ways.

"Yesterday was moving day for me and @michellerandolph 🥺," Cassie, 25, wrote alongside a set of photos of the pair in their former home.

"The last 2 years (and our entire lives for that matter) we have been pretty much attached at the hip," she said. "We've shared an apartment, the same friends, joint custody of our kitties, closets, food, starting a company - you name it."

Joking that it sounds like they "have an attachment issue," she said she feels "lucky to be so close as sisters."

While Cassie will be in Orange County, California, Michelle will be living in L.A. "We aren't going to live together anymore- she'll be mainly in LA and I'll be in OC (living status updates to come)," she explained.

Saying goodbye to one another and the abode they shared was an emotional day for the pair, with Cassie admitting that she "woke up" the following day "with a puffy face from all the tears I cried yesterday over the bittersweet memories and experience of getting to live with my best friend."

"I already miss just knowing she's right there in the other room. I'm even getting sentimental about our arguments over doing the dishes and who's going to pick up cat food," she said. "I know we could always live together again and we are only a short drive away, but change is always an emotional thing. Love you, Chel 🤍👯️."

As for Michelle — who is dating actor Gregg Sulkin — she also commemorated the move on social media, sharing that she was "ending my favorite chapter."

"Goodbye to our little cream colored safe haven. My face is already swollen from crying so I'm not going to get too sappy here- but the memories from these two years, I will cherish forever," Michelle captioned a similar series of Instagram snaps. "I love you more than Rose loves sitting on our shoes @cassierandolph."

In December, Cassie took her Instagram followers on a tour of her L.A. home.

Despite her preparing to move at the time, Cassie said that the tour was "better late than never."

"Ironically it's probably going to be full of moving boxes soon. I've been debating between a few different living options. Going to miss this place!" she wrote in her Instagram Reels caption.

After winning season 23 of The Bachelor in 2019, Cassie entered into a relationship with Colton Underwood. The pair later called it quits in June.

A source told PEOPLE at the time that the two "just weren't on the same page."

"Colton really wanted to settle down and get married — he's been ready for a long time," the source said. "And Cassie just wasn't ready. They both knew it wasn't going to work."
