Last night I was sitting at work and checked my watch and it said 8:30pm.
Flash back six years ago… December 1st, 2004, 8:30pm… I was rolling into town, scared and excited and fairly delirious after driving 1,100 miles (including through a white-out blizzard on Vail Pass), wondering what in the hell I was doing… but I was doing it. I had packed up my car and moved from here:
There are still days that I can’t believe I’ve been here for six years. Days I miss my Minnesotan friends and family and home so bad I could cry. But I know I’m blessed to live where I do now…to have the friends and family I have here right now. Life doesn’t always go the way we’ve planned, but that’s the beauty of it I guess!
