I’m done with my Project 365 (or 366, as it was a leap year). Just over a year ago – a year on Thursday – Shane accepted the job offer that resulted in our move out here. On the same day, I applied for the job that I now have. I can’t believe it’s been a year already. Our lives have changed so much since then!
While this move was very, very hard on me, I think it’s been a really good thing for our relationship. I feel like we’re much closer, much more stable, and much more aware of needing each other. I’m so thankful for that, and for the awesome dude that is currently asleep in our bedroom with our cat.
There are still times when I’m horribly, achingly homesick for the life we had back in Champaign – our friends, our favorite places, our 7 minute commutes on our bikes, my wonderful job and coworkers, our big sunny apartment with the garden and clothesline – but for the most part, I think we’re both really happy out here. And that’s a good thing.
