It's decided. Justin and I are moving OUT of West Chester, PA and straight to Eugene, OR. Justin has been wanting to move back out west for some time now, and our two trips out there for the river trip, and last Thanksgiving sealed the deal for me. I used to be really scared of moving so far away from my family, but I think I am ready, and this is definitely something I want to do. We are lucky to live during a time when we can just get on a plane and be anywhere in the world in less than 24 hours. I will miss my family a lot, but I'm hoping they will travel to see me as well as me going home occasionally to visit.
I'm glad I moved to West Chester to be with Justin, but it didn't take me long to realize that this is not the place for me for a variety of reasons. I'm so happy that we made this decision to move to Eugene together. My cousin Emily and Justin's brother Arthur (Emily and Arthur are married) live there, and we are excited to be able to hang out with them! Ideally, we will be driving out of West Chester on August 22nd. I plan to document this adventure as much as I can and share it here.
