Leaving Las Vegas

Today,  I leave the city where I grew up.

I'm ready,  yet it's still a little bittersweet for me.

So, to help me document the end of this era,  I've chosen the song

Leaving Las Vegas
by
Sheryl Crow 

to share with you.

"I'm standing in the middle of the desert, 
waiting for my ship to come in."
(photo credit, Russell Smith)

Thank you for all your prayers, wishes, and support as we embark on our journey to the 
Pacific Northwest!

Love to you all, 

Becca

Oh my gosh Becca, have a good and safe trip, and a wonderful arrival in your new place. This is both exciting, and scary, and nerve wracking, and wonderful....

At times I still have feeling for our old place, and I am still reeling from our so sudden departure. I know that those will go away with time.

Can't wait for you to feel the first real Seattle shower...and the fog.

What a HUGE thing to leave a place you've been in for so long. I am sure you are going to LOVE Seattle and at times miss the brown. Hope all is going well with your unpacking and settling!
