Here’s a post to bring everything up to date so I can start being more timely!
We departed Germany the last week of March and spent a few weeks house hunting in Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia. It was stressful, but we eventually found just the right place. Big Ds sister Becky came to spend a quick day exploring with us:
And then after just 11 days in America we were off to Toronto, Canada for six weeks while D attended some training. We were in a (not so great) suburb and our less than ideal location plus the ridiculous temperatures (snow, in April!?) made me cranky. We took a day trip to Niagara Falls, and at the end of that day…I booked a ticket to St. Petersburg, Florida to visit my sister and to thaw out!
Fletch and I drove from Toronto to Alexandria in early May.
I spent a few days at my friend Jenny’s while I got organized and then finally: Moving Day!
I worked really hard for a solid week and suddenly I was unpacked, settled in, and ready to explore our new neighborhood:
And a few weeks later: Big D was back from his training, the final touches were added to our new place, and we hosted a little Housewarming Party.
We’ve already had a lot of fun and we have a long list of things we are excited to see, so stay tuned!
