mini life update
Well it's official! The tides of change have arrived again just in time to welcome me to summer. As of May 23rd I will be saying goodbye to Colorado and hello again to good ol' Springfield Missouri. Bittersweet is an understatement.
I'll miss the mountains. I'll miss how hot the sunshine feels on your face even during winter. I'll miss our favorite coffee + pizza joints. I'll miss the breathtaking views on the drive home. And most of all, I'll miss the family I built here.
Jake and I are moving back to SGF for a year before he goes into grad school. Why Missouri? I ask myself the same thing everyday. But it always comes down to the same thing - community. Colorado has been great because I literally got to live like a semi-hermit for a whole year! No obligatory lunch/coffee dates (*barf*). No expectations. Nobody knowing anything about you. It's a beautiful thing. For a season.... but then it's just lonely. You miss having people asking, "hey, where were you?" and "let's meet up for a sonic run at 3" and "is your hair supposed to look like that?" :]
After attending college in Missouri for 3 years, I met a couple of the coolest people EVER there who I miss dreadfully and desperately need more time with. So Springfield, I'm comin for ya! Even though I really don't love the midwest, springfield is blogger-central of the world, and for the first summer ever I won't live 25 min from a beach... it'll do :]
If any of my lovely readers are in the Springfield area, let's meet!!
