To My Grandkids,
I am so blessed!
This week at the farm has been pretty chill. As we are nearing the end of our stay, we've been spending more time together with our roommates and sharing stories of the times we've had here.. We usually end up sitting down for lunch together and filling the house with laughter, which is always nice! Right now, we have 5 days left on the farm, and then 5 days to spend on the main island of Puerto Rico!
Which brings me to the next topic of being SOOO EXCITED to go back home.. I absolutely LOVE living on this island, with only a few things I would change.. But I am just as excited to go home as I was to come here.. Because this time, we'll be coming home to our very own home! Now that it's set in stone I can share that we got an apartment in Utah. Neither one of us have been to Utah, and this will be our first apartment together- lots of excitement for new things there!
I've been spending my time daydreaming about decorating our new home, shopping for plates, furniture, curtains.. All the mundane stuff that is boring to most people is what I'm most looking forward to. It's the small things that bring me the most joy, and getting to pick our dishes and towel colors to make our place comfortable and exactly how we want it is something I've never gotten to do before.. (except I did get to decorate the van exactly how I want it but that's a little different)
We are both ecstatic to make this move- and literally counting down the days until move-in (currently 24!!!!!!!!!). We've been applying for jobs, and making calls to get everything lined up- so it's becoming very real now :)
I am SO BLESSED to have the experiences I have.
I am SO BLESSED for these opportunities.
I am SO BLESSED to have Elliot as my partner, adventure buddy, and best friend. He is my biggest supporter, and I honestly can't thank him enough for the good times we've had and continue to have together. I am SO BLESSED to get to 'do life' with him :)
We are making big moves together, and I'm excited to see where else the future takes us both as individuals and as partners!
Life is so good.
Your life-loving-ever-growing Granny J :)
