Jonathan and I are starting to settle back into Corvallis and it feels a little weird. I have spent the last month (practically the last summer) visiting friends all around country and it has been wonderful. But, now I am back in our home in Corvallis and it reminds me that we don’t know a single person in this town. It is such a weird feeling knowing I can’t call anyone up to meet me for coffee or go for a walk.
Today I miss all of my friends and family. I miss seeing people in the grocery store and I miss spending time with our friends. I know we are right where we are supposed to be, and where we are supposed to be is pretty great, but for some reason today I am missing our other home. I just think today is one of those days where the move is finally catching up with me. I mean, we REALLY moved to Corvallis. Can you believe it?!
On a lighter note, the above picture is of my friend Sally and I. I went up to Seattle last weekend to visit some of my oldest and dearest friends and it was really good. We spent most of our time in Madison Park area and it was fabulous. We laughed really hard and talked deep into the night. I am thankful for those moments.
Even though I don’t know anyone right now, I have confidence that I will meet people and make friends. It is a little harder while we are in Corvallis because our time here is so short but I know however it all pans out, it will be good. And, not knowing anyone where I live makes me that much more thankful for all my friends and family we have scattered all over the country.
Happy Thursday friends!
