and we meet again

Hello again friends. A week since my last post. Gawd I need to get with it. Once again the week was filled with ups, downs, and everything in between.  That being said, the biggest news of the week is we're are moving back home. Yup, going home to Minnesota! After living in Missoura for a year it was time to head home. We've had some stuff going on with family and we just wanted to be home. Seriously, life is nothing without family.

 I remember being young and thinking I wanted to move far, far away from family when I turned 18.  Well that never happened the farthest I moved away was 45 minutes. Now its over 10 hrs and 600 miles and we can't take that anymore.

I was so reluctant to come down here and try to enjoy my time. After speaking with a good friend, (who had moved to Arizona) she told me to "make sure to enjoy your time there.  You don't want to look back on your time there and regret it."  That stuck with me. I had been so set on not having fun, not wanting to be here and not wanting to (attempt) to make friends.  If any of you ever move away from "home" do you best to enjoy the time you had. When I finally started to let myself enjoy things, so many wonderful doors opened to me. 

I am so grateful to the wonderful people I've encountered on this journey. My co-workers who welcomed me with open arms. Showed me how things are done in Missoura. The amazing people at the Library in town. I loved volunterring there to help with the kids arts & crafts.  Becoming a "Big Sister". The ladies in Junior League who were so wonderful. I'm so sad to leave. The Junior League does so many wonderful things down here. I can't wait to join the Minneapolis League.

I never thought I would be sad to leave Missoura. I was at the dentist yesterday and it was so hard to say goodbye. Only 21 days till we're back home.

See you soon Minnesota, see you soon!


  1. Congrats on the big move! So exciting!

  8. My parents are around all the time so I honestly can't say I've ever had time to miss them haha. Glad you're going back home though. As annoying as family can be, Im sure I'd miss them like crazy if they were 10 hours away.
