Fond farewell

Today we left our little rowhouse on Draper Lane to start our new adventure.
Our "compound crew" was there to help get us on our way, assist as we had to switch gears on the fly and bid us adieu as we headed out and it once again reminded me of what a different world we live in at this point in our lives compared to our parents. We know we'll stay in touch with these people. They'll read this post, we'll look at each others pictures on Facebook and end up in each others cities for work conferences and vacations. FaceTime and Skype are tools used all over now (I had a Skype interview the other day!) and the world is a much smaller place these days when you can write a blog post from the backseat of a car in Ohio (ahem).
Anyway, this is all to say that this blog will likely be making a resurrection as we travel cross country and I feel the need to document in a way that Facebook and Twitter don't really allow.
I'll leave you with two photos from the day. Both make me sad, but it's gonna be okay. I've left dear friends before and know they're all there, even when spread all over.


  1. Blogging is a great way to keep family and friends posted on the day-to-day excitement from a distance. I look forward to hearing all about your new life in Colorado as you guys settle in!

    1. Totally agree K. I've been following your travels over the last year via your blog!

  2. Our son marched by your house this morning, chanting his favorite word: Pia, Pia, Pia. We'll Skype you some day soon so he can say it to your face.
