This morning, we had hoped to leave Massachusetts by 8:00 a.m.
This was 8:30 a.m.:
And this was 9:42 a.m.:
But we don’t mind that we started later than planned. We had a tremendous weekend with our family and, as Austin said, our friends, who are family. We left with a lot of love in our hearts to carry with us to our new home.
We couldn’t drive through Stamford, CT without stopping briefly to see our good friend Annie, who had laid out a delicious spread of bagels and Danish to hold us over until lunch. We couldn’t have asked for more.
We were SO happy that we bumped our trip up one day, and decided to leave on a Sunday. We hit essentially no traffic, and despite multiple restroom stops, we made it to Virginia in great time.
After enjoying a decadent meal and great conversation with Aunt Mary Beth and cousins Jen and Nadia, we are officially in food comas and are calling it a night, just before the stroke of 10 o’clock.
