I can't believe this is it. It has all come to an end. We say goodbye to Washington D.C. and fly out in just a few days.
Our computer and all will be boxed up in the morning. This will be my last post from my little town home on the east coast.
I have written my Farewell D.C. post in my head for the last year and unfortunately just don't have the time tonight to write it. So maybe on the plane.

But I can say this. It was here that
  • I learned I had huge calves (duh look at the photo) and learned I had a huge heart.
  • I learned that I thrive off adventure and am a very good tourist.
  • I learned how to see in me what others have seen for years.
  • I learned how to feel the spirit of God and act on it, no questions asked.
  • I learned how little I really knew about our great country.
  • I learned that unless you know absolute everything you have no idea in the world what you really want or really need.
I needed D.C. and I think I can honestly say D.C. needed me!
Goodbye East Coast. Colorado here we come!!!

Marla said...

I have sooo loved seeing all of your adventures...traveling around the Capitol...and beyond! I wish you all the best in your next stage!

Melissa said...

I have loved reading about all your adventures and seeing pictures of the east coast. I can't wait to take my kids to DC someday! I'm sure I'll feel the same way about Colorado soon :)

Best of luck and good times in the next few days. We will be thinking of you, and looking forward to your family being closer!! Hope you have enough tissue for the next few days!!

linda said...

This almost made me cry because I know your heart must be breaking on the one hand yet you're excited on the other. It's hard to leave a place you love but Colorado is the beginning of a new chapter...and I wish you and your wonderful family the best of luck! Besides, hopefully we'll be neighbors in the near future!

I'm sad for you that you are leaving your D.C. home! But I know that good things and new memories are to come. Can't wait to hear about your new adventures! Have a safe move!

Mary Elizabeth said...

I hope you find lots of cool new adventures to take in Colorado. I am sorry that I never got to get to DC (which is less than 4 hrs from our house in NC) to meet you.

We all look forward to hearing about everything - pink!! :)

michelle said...

That is quite a list of lessons, KBC! Learning those things would be worth any amount of heartache.

I so love the way you make the most of everything, and I have no doubt that Colorado needs you just as much.

patsy said...

CO is going to LOVE you!!!

I hope you love them... JK- you love everyone!
Just think- there you can visit the U.S. Mint!!!

fun times

I am glad you lived in D.C.- because you have taught all us readers so much- You are the best!

Good luck on your trip :)

Jill said...

I really can't believe it has already been 4 years!!! You soaked up everything and really took D.C. by storm, what a great thing to be able to say! I'm just bummed that I never got to come visit and see it through your eyes.

Good luck with your move! I hope you're drinking lots of water so you don't dehydrate with tear-loss.

Colorado is LUCKY to be getting you! I am looking foward to following your new adventures! You make the best of everything and find the fun in anything. All the best to you and your family as you travel and begin the process of settling in.

ps...Aren't you excited to unpack your fabulous new chairs in your new home?

elshmobelsh said...

Claudissima said...

wow what a Journey! Anywhere you go, you will take DC PLUS all your long list. You are great at being planted where you go! YEAH Colorado watch out! I still have to go back to DC where I lived for 2 years....its been at least 35 years!

Leigh said...

Kristi, we've never met, but as soon as that first picture of your family popped up, I teared up. I think it's because you've made it so abundantly clear how much you've loved your time in DC...I was having sympathy moving pains for you!

All the best in your new adventure! Can't wait to read about it!

Nicole said...

I hate that you are leaving the area just as I have learned to love it. Best of Luck in CO!! They are so lucky to have you and your precious family!!

Price Cream Parlor said...

What a blessing it has been for your family to live and love there. I am sure it is a great loss for everyone around that area when you leave! I agree... you have much to offer in CO and I am sure, in time, you will love the people and the area.

I admire how adventureous you are and just go and do! I love that you made the most of where you lived!That is inspiring!

Good luck! Breathe. All will be time!

Cara said...

I am so excited for you and your family! I can't wait to hear all about your new CO adventure! I secretly want to have my own adventure somewhere else but alas it won't happen. That's why I will just have to live through you and your fun new life! Hope you don't mind.

Liz said...

Good luck with the move! I hope you are getting all settled in Colorado, and being greeted by many kind souls! Can't wait to hear all about your new adventures!
