3 Years Ago

3 years ago, today, we moved to Temple, TX!


March 27 - picked up and packed the Uhaul. Drove from Ruidoso, NM to Roswell, NM. Picked up Nik's dad from the airport. (Thank you, Russell for helping us drive the Uhaul!). Headed across NM into TX. Stayed the night at my grandparents along the way.

Leaving New Mexico

Entering Texas

March 28 - left in the morning and drove to Temple. We stopped at the house, dropped off the Uhaul and had enough time to eat at Bush's Chicken (where we found our new love...sweet tea!) and then met up with our realtor. Signed paperwork to purchase our house and then started moving in! Nik's family met us at the house to help unload and get settled in.
