Update: Sorry I missed ya’ll yesterday, I was in Joplin, Missouri with a group of people from work to rebuild a few houses for Habitat for Humanity (well, put siding on homes…aka, hammer a few nails and wear a tool belt). It was such a wonderful, eye-opening experience and I feel so blessed with everything I have. The town of Joplin lost over 700 homes and businesses and a hundred of lives from the devastating tornado. Habitat is slowly rebuilding the town with lots of support from sponsors and personal donations. They still have a long way to go, but they are trying to bring back a little normalcy to a town that lost so much.
While I was away, I also found out that Patrick was being transferred to Ohio (hence the t-shirt). I am really excited for his move, especially for him to be able to live in a town with actual restaurants, street lights and friends. This is the furthest we have ever been apart in the almost 5 years of being together. So in order to make the move easier on both of us, we are planning on traveling up the East Coast; making stops in all of the cities we have always wanted to visit. I am telling you all this because I am going to start a series, hopefully every two weeks about our adventures and the fun places we will visit.
Do any of you sweet readers have any advice/ recommendations on making the transition easier?
