I can't find them.






Me: Excuse me driver, have you seen a pair of size 8 wooden needles lying around?
Driver: Why yes, they are in a box, near the front of the trailer on the left, near the bottom. I believe they are lying on top of a skein of handspun lace weight alpaca.
Me: Thank heavens. Now I can start swatching for that sweater.

Today is the first day of the rest of my life. Or something like that.
As of 8:00am this morning, we began the process of moving to Atlanta. The actual process began months ago, but this week we are actually packing up and heading out. Bryan has been a pillar of strength these past few months and has been very supportive. He has pretty much orchestrated the entire process thanks to the top notch moving package he was given. But today he really came through. Without no coffee to be found and with no means to get any, Bryan went to St. Louis Bread Co. and brought back coffee.

A couple of months ago I could have listed numerous things that I will miss about St. Louis without missing a beat. But today only one thing comes to mind. (however, I will list other things I miss in another post) What I will miss most, and already do, are my friends. I have been blessed to meet many wonderful people and build some very close relationships during the past 6 years. When I think of St. Louis I will not think of landmarks or places of interest. I will see the faces of the people who have made my life here special.
