Leaving Michigan: 11 days

How ironic: this is our last night in Michigan and we are 11 days away from arrival :) Dakota requested a shout out so here it is. Thanks for stopping by to say goodbye D-Bird, D-Cat, D-O, or whatever you wanted to be called!

Not the best picture but you get the idea.
We had a blast while we were up here.  The weather was wonderful!  We spent a couple days out on the boat which is probably my favorite thing to do.  Moe got to spend time reading, playing games, and working on 'his base' for Thailand.  We had some friends up here with us at the beginning of the week which was wonderful.  We LOVED spending time with them and being silly together.  We will treasure that time with them.  Also, we went putt-putting, which has come to be a tradition for Moe and I when we vacation.  Neither of us are amazing at it but we enjoy it.

We were also productive.  We got the last of our luggage needed.  Who knew that finding large luggage would be difficult....well it is! Especially in northern Michigan.  But we found something that I think is perfect; it just took us 4 stores!  I went thrifting a couple times too which was surprisingly productive :) Moe fixed Aunt Lynn's computer and we got everything settled for her to make me a t-shirt quilt.  I am SOOO excited to see it when it is done/when we get back!

This has been a wonderful week to spend with family.  We are so blessed by the support here.  We will truly miss these people.  It's been real Michigan :)

Anyway, even though I said we are 11 days from arrival we are closer to 9 days from leaving home.  It is so so so close!! Moe and I are both getting extremely excited.  We are ready.  Although we still have quite a few goodbyes left and a TON of packing to do, we have come to terms with everything.  We know this is where we are supposed to be and have full faith that everything will work out.  With only a few days left, I am very comfortable with this feeling and know that it is good.  Not sure if that makes any sense but it is how I feel.  And so goodbye Michigan and family.  We love you lots! :)
