it’s the simplest of things

It seems strange to think that just a few weeks ago, I was still living in New Hampshire.

Yesterday, I had to trade out my New Hampshire license plates for Arizona ones,

and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel a little pang of sadness.

I feel it every time I move to a new state though, really…

It’s the end of an era, but it’s also the start of a new one that I’m so excited for.

^^^ my collection is growing 

The crazy thing is that this time next year, I’ll (most likely) have New York plates on my car,

and I’ll have my Arizona plate up there with the others.

There’s a certain thrill to moving all around and exploring these new places,

but there’s a restlessness to it all, too.

I’m terribly excited to discover this Army life and all its adventures with Ryan,

and I’m thrilled to see all these places and do all these things with him and the family we hope to have someday.

It’s definitely daunting though, to think that those three license plates could grow by another three

by the time Ryan’s done in the Army.

Right now though, it’s the simplest of things making me happy. 

We go to yoga every Monday and Wednesday, we’re running together,

we juice every evening and make a point of cuddling and having “us” time so we don’t get overwhelmed

by the day-to-day tasks that are, in the end, actually trivial.

It’s an exciting life we lead, and I’m looking forward to every little new adventure.
