So I’m finally taking down my Christmas tree.
I know how ridiculous that sounds. And it is. But it’s Liebling’s birthday this Thursday so it’s the least I can do.
I’ve had a hard time saying goodbye to it this year. I keep looking at it and plugging it in anyway because I’m not ready to say goodbye. Only a handful of people know so far, but I’ll be moving to Arizona in August.
So no more snow, no more commute, no more coffee break pleasantries and my favorite bar and sending packages to my parents’ house as an excuse to say hello and steal dinner. It also means a long distance relationship because Liebling won’t be able to join me for a while.
So I’m dragging out all my goodbyes, even to the Christmas tree. Luckily every time I get sad he reminds me that I’m going to love the desert and I can video chat and call and text and he’s only a plane ride away.
My sister is going with me, so we started a Pinterest board for design ideas and a Trello board for logistical planning. I think I’d be lost without her. We’re going to road trip it up and take Route 66 to our new home. I’m pretty excited to live with her again.
So if anyone has any long distance move or cross country drive advice I’d love to hear it. And thanks for listening to my pouting.
