I had applied to grad school in Utah the end of September and was contemplating moving there the end of October to find a job and get settled in hopes of preparing for beginning with school the next summer. Clark and I had been dating a couple weeks but by the second week of November I still felt I needed to take the journey up to Utah. I packed up my entire life into my car and drove! By the time I had gotten to Provo, 9 hours away, I knew I was going to be moving back to Arizona. Instead of turning right around and making my great expedition an 18 hour day I continued on my way and stayed for 2 weeks visiting friends and family and trying to piece together what I was going to do now and why I had made such the long journey.
We moved into our house in August and have been learning and growing together. Life is a journey, and this is just our work in progress.
