This week, I’ve been catching up on some of our much needed packing process. Floyd has a shot glass collection, with glasses he’s picked up all the places we’ve traveled, and several friends and family members have contributed to it as well. We’re not big drinkers, but shot glasses are oddly one of those little knick knacks you can find at any gift shop anywhere in the world pretty much! I started taking them down and wrapping them up and it was really a fun trip down memory lane! I thought about our time in Quincy with the Illinois ones, Kansas and all the great friends we made there with those glasses, as I pulled down glasses from Oklahoma and Dallas I remembered the first “grown-up” vacation Floyd and I took after our honeymoon…and so many other fantastic memories of trips to Kansas City, Florida, South Dakota, job interviews where I picked up glasses for him in Wisconsin, South Carolina, West Virginia…wow—I got to thinking about how this will soon be 7 years of wedded bliss in our marriage, and this fall marking 12 years as a couple! It is crazy to think how time has flown by. But Floyd is still my very best friend, and I feel beyond blessed to have shared so many wonderful memories and adventures with him. Last night before we went to sleep, we were talking about being ready for all the stress of our upcoming move to be over and be able to enjoy our next chapter in the mountains!
