We Moved You Know ...

Miles Away
From Connecticut
All the way

Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and you have to run with it you know!
I chose to run with it ...
Morgan chose to run with it as well ...
and here we are.
I loved my home in Connecticut.
I love my family and miss them every single day.
Morgan misses Connecticut and her family as well.
There isn't a day that goes by that we don't think about our "people" there.
We think about the back roads we used to go for drives on just because.
We think about the crazy weather, hot and cold and muggy and snowy.
We think about our first "Harry's Burger" of the season every year.
We think about our weekends in Maine.
We think about Mystic Village and our favorite shop there.
We think about having breakfasts at "The Shack".
and how could I ever forget 
My favorite chili dogs at Saints.
We think about all the memories we created there.
We think about the people we lost and buried there.
We wonder ever single day if we made the right choice when we moved here to California.
It's different ...
It's never going to be our Connecticut.
We don't expect it to be.
We are looking forward to all the new memories we'll make here in California.
We know it's been hard for our family and friends to have us so far away.
We miss you and we know you miss us too ....
but life throws us curve balls sometimes
and you either stand there and get hit or you run with it.
We will see you all again when we can.
Maybe not today, or tomorrow, or even next month ...
but when we can and we hope you'll all remember we'd love to make new memories
with you here in California when you come to visit us.


  1. Awww Even if you choose to move homesickness still happens but it does ease in time as you embrace your new surroundings and make new memories and a life. I envy the guts it took to do it. It'll turn out to be one of the best moves ever.

  2. You said it exactly right! You will be making NEW MEMORIES!! I love this photo! So beautiful!!!
