Alex and I moved to Boston in August of last year. He has started graduate school and is studying Mental Health Counseling. We drove across the country in our Subaru and while our hearts were sad to leave family in the west, we were excited to come to one of our dream cities.
|About to leave Idaho|
|Right after getting square ice cream. |
We were beyond blessed to stay with friends along our trip and we felt so well taken care of. Having a safe place to stay with people who cared really made our trek more enjoyable.
We stayed one night in my beloved Centerville, Ohio. We arrived late and left early so we didn't get to do much but on our way out we drove by our old house and grabbed a Graeter's Ice Cream. Unlike the licorice ice cream, Graeter's never disappoints.
|My old Stomping Ground|
|Some of my best memories are from here|
|Excuse our hot, sweaty, crying faces. |
We still felt a little sad but Graeter's always helps
Finally we arrived in Boston and were met by an unsightly apartment. We had seen pictures before moving but we didn't really know the full status of the apartment. We were far from impressed which all but broke my resolve to come to this new place away from family to help. Luckily we were able to update and purge the apartment of the awfulness and we settled in not long after.
