going home to roost

| bonnie forkner

we're moving!

the house is empty and the pod is packed,

all tied down and neatly stacked.

hugs and kisses to friends from the years,

we hold on tight and fight back the tears.

a 3 day drive until we arrive,

to the land in which we thrive.

returning to the mountains and streams,

the people and places that fill our dreams.

california we will dearly miss,

we’ll remember often and reminisce.

anxious for what is to be introduced,

we’re finally going home to roost.

– by bonnie and david (in the car).

yes, today we’re starting our 3 day drive to north carolina! and just in case you’re like ‘say, what?!’, you can catch up on our move and my thoughts on it here and here. :) we’ll be hitting up albuquerque, oklahoma city and saint louis along the way before we finally arrive at my parents house late on thursday night. my sister will be waiting as she’s already made plans to whisk us away (or rather scrape us up from off the ground) to attend the opening of twilight. haha. friday we’ll be swinging by our storage unit and grabbing some things we need before we drive to brevard and check out our new home. i can hardly wait! we’ll have about a week to start settling in before our pod arrives and the craziness of unpacking ensues.

follow our trip on instagram! i’ll be instagramming (and tweeting) as much as possible, and would love for you to join us on our journey! you can find me by searching for @goinghometoroost or follow along on my web profile. see you soon!

p.s. i’ve got posts scheduled here for you all week, so you shouldn’t notice much of a change. xo
