tribute to Tucson


The first phase of our move was completed successfully. The house sold and closed without any problems, and all of our worldly possessions are on a semi, somewhere near Burlington, VT. A huge thank you to everyone who helped out, watching our girls, helping us move furniture, and being just all around great friends.

We are hanging out in Denver, house sitting for my parents while they are in Ireland. It's been a nice break from the chaos of moving. When my parents come back we'll start on phase 2 of the move: Finding a House. We are going to leave Ella and Sophie to play with the grandparents while Jacob and I fly to Burlington and check it out. Fingers are crossed that it will be easier to find a house than it was to buy our "new" car. Note to self: 2 weeks before moving across the country is not the best time to be trying to buy a car. It's a used, but in beautiful condition, Acura TSX (if you're curious). It's awesome.

We left Tucson a week ago today and it's been fun, but it just feels like we're on vacation. I end up with a little bit of anxiety when I remember that we're not going back home.

Here is a little farewell to Tucson...to our great friends, experiences, memories...(Jacob's proposal on Mt Lemmon, first apartment, teaching dance, dance festival, my internship at St Mary's, our first house, our girls' births', Jacob's master's degree, amazing friends, and our adventures-camping, exploring, parties, running, biking, serving in Mutual). It was a great 10 years. Tucson is a great place to live.

That was such a nice video. It makes me miss you already and you just barely left. We really need Sophie to come play princesses. Troy's bro is heading to Burlington next year. Be looking out for him. We will come visit.
