A Beautiful Whirlwind

One week from today {if everything goes according to our very ambitious cross-country road trip plan}, Trish Davis, the pup and I will be pulling into Nashville.

I still can not believe that this move is on the horizon and getting a little bit closer each day.

The last couple of weeks have been a beautiful whirlwind. Finishing up work at Project 7, crossing items off of my California bucket list {Dodger’s Game – check, Disneyland - check, Beach Bonfire – check, Late Night Swim in the Pacific – check, Hotel Cafe - check, Wurstckuche – check, Huntington Gardens – check, Pasadena – check, Philippe’s - check and I still have 5 days left, we’ll see what else I can cram in}, house hunting in Nashville, checking out my new work digs, and enjoying some ‘down’ time with my parents who are going to miss having a daughter who lives on the Pacific.

I don’t anticipate things will slow down from here. House inspections. Oil changes and tire rotations. Packing {just enough gear to get me through a Nashville summer and trips to the beach and Africa}. And of course, goodbyes or what I prefer to call ‘see you laters.’

And Friday morning as the sun rises, we will head east. Fast and furiously towards home.

I am thankful for the friends who keep checking in and inquiring after my state of being, and the state of my heart. Truth be known, my emotions are all over the map. There is sadness, fear, and grief intermixed with joy, excitement, and contentment. I hope the journey itself will help me sort through what I am leaving behind, what I am traveling to, and what I can take with me.

What journeys do you have planned this summer?

    Oh my gosh! I can’t believe it’s only a week away. Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help once you’re here and getting settled in.
