Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.
Seneca the Younger

Two years ago tomorrow, I drove into St. Louis with my mom and a tranquilized cat in the backseat of my packed Volkswagen.

Sometimes it seems like yesterday and other times I feel like we've been here forever. I have learned so much from this first move away from home. About myself, my husband, my family and, really, how much I am capable of on my own. To be honest, I'm really proud of us. This could have been a complete disaster but it has been simply the opposite. I'm so happy to call St. Louis home and although I miss so much about Florida I really love our life here.

I can't wait to see what the years to come have in store for us!

Getting closer!

Almost there!

Hello St. Louis!

Being carried over the threshold of our first home together.
Please excuse the awful angle of this photo, it's the only one I have!

aw that's awesome! I can't imagine the strength it must have taken to pick up and move halfway across the country. That's so amazing. I've live in the same place my whole life and sometimes I wish I had moved somewhere else, but I love St. Louis and I'm glad you do too! I think we need to get together soon, I miss hanging with you!

I am coming to St. Louis with Hubby in the spring for a conference. Do you have any suggestions on what to see besides the arch? I have never been so I am up for anything!
