Today is my last day living in my home.
It's like leaving my hometown all over again.
When I left for college over 3 1/2 years ago, it was REALLY hard on me. Harder than I think anyone knew. I had lived in the same place, in the same house, knowing all the same people, for 18 years! I left everything I loved and knew to go to BYU-Idaho.
Only it was different from what's happening now.
It was also exciting. Starting college, living on my own for the first time, meeting cute (Mormon!) boys.
Now it's not so exciting. Moving to Utah.
We're starting a "real life" now so I should be excited, right?
Brad is starting his career, no more school, we'll be buying real furniture and paying real bills and living day to day as grown ups.
I cried when I woke up this morning because this is my home!
This is where I met my husband, where we had our first home together, where we made our first "couple" friends, where we got pregnant, where we had our baby, where we raised her for almost the entire first year of her life.
This is where "we" happened. Brad and I. And then Katie. It's hard to leave where your family started. Where your entire life changed so drastically, for the better.
Where you met amazing friends and some of the most wonderful people you'll ever meet in this life.
I can't believe i'm leaving. I can't believe this is happening.
Can I be more dramatic? Haha.
I'm sure my last day in the best ward in the whole wide world today will be so hard.
Such a sad day.
Having to say good-bye to so many of my wonderfully amazing neighbors and friends.
While I don't like Rexburg at all, I LOVE the experiences i've had, the people i've met, the fact that the cashiers at the grocery store know who I am!
Rexburg is where I became who I am, and I actually really like who I am!
I'm so much more of a better person now than I was before I came here.
And now i'm leaving here.
Listen up Utah! You have some big shoes to fill!
And off I go. . .
