Goodbye, Virginia

Nick comes back home tomorrow (!!!!!), movers come Thursday and we are starting our journey to California on Friday (if everything goes as planned... lets hope).
I can obviously find negative reasons about living in Virginia on a daily basis... it's too hot, too much traffic, it's so humid I can't breathe, everybody is in a hurry...
But I really wanted to take some time to reflect on our year living on the east coast.
List time! I love lists :)

I thank Virginia for:

  • Our first home together
  • Sweet Tea-- I will really miss you
  • Our first Christmas together... in New York! (we didn't spend holidays together while dating & engaged) 
  • All of our amazing friends who have really become more like family
  • Firehouse Subs... duh
  • All the memories made with family visits
  • The ability to spend time in and explore Washington DC
  • The opportunity to babysit for the Tilney family-- I will miss them so much!
  • The journey across the country... soon to be twice! We really do feel lucky with everything we get to see and do
  • Showing me what it means to be far away from family, and reminding me everyday to not take them for granted
We will miss Virginia, but we are anxious to get back to the west coast and settled in California. 
We will keep updating the blog on our drive, so stay tuned!
