Four years ago we packed up our little one-year-married-MyrtleBeach life and moved to Raleigh, NC.
I quickly started working at Barnes & Noble Cafe and Burnie Batchelor's while we both adjusted to Jeremy's new grad school, studio life & schedule!
Quite the adventure it's been since then. Truly not a day goes by that we don't miss our family, friends, and beach back home, but it's amazing to see all the change and growth from then to now.
(only the three bold links go actual places; the rest are just 4-yr-old Instas:)
- Our people were little!!! Cade was just a month old when we moved, and Kayla was eight, starting third grade!!!
- I was skyping regularly with Jessi & Layla and our families while trying to make friends in our new city.
- I had just been introduced to Clubs in the City, my new two-story Barnes, Trader Joe's, Nollie maps (J's first assignment), the Wolfpack, and living not-at-the-beach.
- I hadn't heard of Wilburn (my school) or Temple Grandin or PeiWei, but they all soon crept into my heart and life and have made a lasting impact; even PeiWei.
It's a good life. Better than either of us deserve, that's for sure. Here's to the next four - forty years, & whatever they may bring... ♥
