all my bags are packed...

...i hope i'm ready to go.

i'm overflowing with gratitude for all the meals and helping hands that have helped us out these past few weeks. the pods are {nearly} loaded and we're ready for our 3,100 mile trek to our new home, with a brief layover in utah.

i'm excited to catch up on recording all that has happened in the past few weeks. girls' nights out, parties, getaways, dinners, farmers markets, lots of "lasts" and packing, packing, packing. 

we've practiced wearing our winter gear and feel ready to tackle a new england winter. feel free to ask me again how i feel about that in march. i found this fashionable hat on clearance at target for $3 and i think it will serve me {and leah?} well.
and don't worry. we didn't forget to pack our most valuable possession. 
i'll be back in a few weeks with updates and tales of our cross country adventure, as well as my must-do list for the bay area. so long, ca.

I'm so excited for you guys! Today we left our graduate school home and we all cried about leaving. We fell in love with it and I hope you have the same experience! It is a time you will love and hate all in one, but mostly love and cherish. Good luck with the trek - THAT is going to be rough! :-)
