{Part 2 - Home}

That for the first 21 years of my life, Washington State was my home.

What mountains look like...particularly this one.

The smell of the earth when you know that rain is coming, and the freshness of the air after it rains.

How no one ever slows down for rain or uses umbrellas

How there truly, truly is no more beautiful place on earth than Western Washington State on a sunny day.

How Capitol Lake was filled with runners every morning and how I loved to join them.

That there were so many odd and unrealistic for the "mima mounds" that my parents lived on.

The beauty of the Camus Lilies every spring.

The joys (and cold and wet and mud) of going to a pumpkin patch in the fall.

The beauty of snow!
How we were amazed when the snow was a 1/2 inch and lasted more than 4 hours! Haha!
What it's like to stroll down the pier (boardwalk) on a sunny afternoon.
The beauty of the Puget Sound.
How the most comforting feeling in the world is curling up on a cold, rainy afternoon with a coffee and a good book
How there  (LITERALLY) is a Starbucks on every corner. <3
The incredible beauty of cherry blossoms in the spring.
How the tress go from bare dead skeletons to trees bursting with life and color in just a few weeks in the spring.
But no matter what, the one thing I will never forget is my family! Aren't they beautiful/handsome? I miss them so much, but am incredibly blessed with modern technology. I talk to my beautiful mother on the phone everyday often get to Skype and FaceTime with them as well.
God is good. Even if Travis and I never move back, our separation is still only as temporary as this life. I am blessed beyond to have such a loving and godly family supporting and loving Travis and I.
Be blessed.
