Goodbye Rockford

Today's the big moving day.

Yesterday evening, I took a break from packing/cleaning and went for a walk. I sat down by the river... watching the ducks swim around, and listening to some guy play his guitar as people passed on the path, and boats passed in the water. I always get all nostalgic when I leave someplace that was once my home.



But I look forward to what lies ahead. Ryan and I are ready to move to Indiana and build a life there. I've always loved starting over in a new city and exploring all it has to offer. I have a knack for finding the good in otherwise pretty dismal towns.



I'll be unpacking all weekend, then starting my new job on Tuesday, so I'm sure I won't be around much for a few days. Ryan will be moving in the first week in June. Make sure you stick around for that as I blog about how we drive each other crazy. Then I blog about how mad Ryan gets when I blog about him. Muahaha.

Kudos to you for being able to just pick up and move your life to a new city. I am one of those big baby home boddies!
Good luck in the new job!

Aren't you going to miss Cheap Trick since they hail from Rockford? Hee hee.

GOOD LUCK and I wish you and Ryan all the best in the Land of John Cougar Mellencamp.
