The Big Day has arrived

It's unlike me to be up even a moment before I have to, especially on a grey and rainy morning designed for sleeping late. But it's moving day and the anticipation has been building for months now and I'm so ready to begin the next phase of our adventure in Ann Arbor. Granted, it's tough to leave St. Louis. This little two-month layover has been one big reminder of how many great friends and fantastic people we know here. That's pretty tough to break away from. But the moving van is packed to the gills and there's no turning back now.

Not that I'd want to. It's tough to explain to all the great folk we're leaving behind, but it's their support and friendship that makes it possible to break away, to try something new and to know that you're going to be okay. the open road! Michigan, here we come.
