We're leaving at approx 12:30ish today, just before Rae's nap time and starting on our long, crazy, dumb, yet very exciting drive to Oregon.
Why didn't we just fly you ask? Trust me when I say that we scoped out every.single.possible route NOT to drive, but it came down to the dang dogs (again). Apparently boxers can't fly and there's no such thing as dog drivers.. someone get on that because I would have paid good money for someone else to drive across country so we could fly. Minus the fact that no one really likes traveling that long, Raelyn hates the car seat so I'm hoping she has a quick change of heart.
This little town will always hold a special place in my heart because it's where our marriage started, where we became a family, where handsome and I grew so much closer as a couple and where our faith has grown as well. Goldsboro was first pick on our list coming from Germany and even though it wasn't as great as we expected, we were able to spend time with handsome's family that was less than two hours away, made some really great friends and made some pretty remarkable memories while we were here.
our first home.
(really the first for a lot of our relationship because we started dating while handsome was still stationed in Germany)
our first pup.
my first ultrasound job (for .5 seconds because I was driving all over NC)
the second pup.
mornings spent like this.
and nights spent like this.
anniversaries in the mountains.
the best new EVER.
our little lady.
the best sunday ever.
So many memories that we made in this little town and so many more to make in our next adventure. There are little things I will miss like
// the dog that's always laying on his dog house outside the Wilson exit (that in the three years we've been here Pumpkin has yet to see)
// the cows that we pass by in our neighborhood & the goats on the way to walmart
// kickin kiwi. I'm pretty sure there isn't another froyo place that will win my heart over. This place was owned by a local church and had the best atmosphere and the best froyo.
