Three Years Ago Today

Three years ago, today, I hopped in a crammed full rented minivan with my three dogs and headed out following a UHaul truck full of all my possessions with my Mustang in tow. Just three short days before was my last day at my job – in fact, in the workforce as a whole! I retired, left my home in Sanford, NC, and moved to my new home in my old home town of Albion, NY! It was scary to pack up and move like that – after all, I was a lot older and not as brave as I was twenty-six years prior when I did the same thing in the opposite direction – but it was the best decision I think I’ve ever made for myself! I settled right in and feel like the twenty-six years I lived in NC are a distant memory and that I never left good ole Albion. At times I think this day three years ago just happened a blink of an eye ago……and other times I think it was a lifetime ago!

Either way…..I’m here……I’m staying put……and I love it!!! It is such a wonderful gift to be able to spend time with Mom every day, if I want to…..and I usually do!!!

So, here are photos from this day in history…….November 7, 2011:
