Upstate New York has been our home for the past four years. We have spent our entire married life here with many new experiences: buying and managing a home, raising a puppy, learning our roles as husband and wife, expanding our experiences in our careers.
It has been a rewarding and sometimes challenging season in our lives. And of course we will miss it all. We will miss the rolling hills of dairy farms, the crisp fall air, the quiet snow days, the spring flowers, the summer festivals and fireworks and how houses are decorated for every season.
L and I have been blessed with great jobs while living here; where we could connect with colleagues, be challenged in our fields, and encouraged. We will also miss those who have been apart of our lives out here, even if for short time, sharing in our interests and helping us feel connected far from family.
Tomorrow we leave for our cross country journey and so it’s time for us to say goodbye.
