soooooo sorry i haven't posted in a bit! but honestly life has been quite crazy. last week, Tyler and i packed up everything we have (actually just what we could jam in our tiny Mazda 2) and drove out across the country all the way to Virginia Beach. 35 hour drive, in 2 1/2 days! it was actually super fun. and we really enjoyed all the scenery... neither of us have ever been to the east coast so we were in awe at all the greenery on our way here!
we drove through Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, and finally, Virginia. we made our stop for the night on day 1 on the border of Kansas and Missouri, and on day 2, actually in Virginia! we stopped by to visit some family friends (and stayed in the cutest red brick home!) that live in Buena Vista and stayed the night there. day 3 was just a short 4 hours and we were here! we are in love with our cute new apartment. we have spent the last 2 days settling in and also exploring our new hometown for the next 4 months. easy to say we have quickly fallen in love!
few pictures below of our stops along the way, and the beautiful beach!
