So after three grueling days of driving through mountains (hey, I'm a flatlander, what do you expect?) I have arrived safe and sound in Southern California. Everything has been moved into the apartment from the Explorer and the brakes need to be fixed tomorrow thanks to the constant riding of the brakes as I went down (what I thought were) steep mountain passes at speeds that should not be allowed.
I am so happy to be here, the sun, the warmth and the ability to wear shorts and sandals in November is just wonderful. But far beyond that, being with Eric Paul and knowing that I don't have to leave him in 5 or 9 or 14 days but that I get to stay here for as long as he can stand me makes me happier than I have ever been.
Thank you all so much for believing in us, for supporting us, for being excited for us as we start our new life together. I see many happy years for us as we sit and knit sweaters that look good but are a little bit too warm for southern CA. I guess that is just a good reason to go back and visit my, excuse me, our family back in Kansas.
Signing off for tonight. As soon as I can talk EP into taking some fabulous pics for me, I will post some pics of a couple of FO's that I brought along with my stash. Thank you guys, thank you for keeping us in your thoughts, keeping me in your prayers as I drove the 1500 mile trek, for listening to my inane ramblings that don't have alot to do with knitting but do have alot to do with happiness. Thank you!
