I am just discovering this old entry that I began and never posted. It appears I got pictures set but never added comments. I might as well post it now. This was the last trip we made to Winslow as out-of-state visitors. It was May 2016. We moved to Arkansas later that year in August.
This is how I announced our move on social media:
"Matt and I both moved out west, independently of each other, 15 years ago. We sought adventure and new experiences. We have lived most of those 15 years together exploring and living the stuff that dreams are made of. Our western experience marks a huge, significant chunk of our lives. Now with 9 years of marriage, two kids, and tons of adventure under our belts, this chapter draws to a close. We will miss dearly the friends who have become family and the places that have inspired us, but we look forward to the next chapter with great anticipation. And so here it is…. Matt has accepted a position with the Ozark-St. Francis National Forest in Arkansas. We are moving back home to the woods and land where Matt grew up and to the hardwood forests that have a certain comforting familiarity for me. We are excited and thrilled to set out on this new adventure with our boys and to raise them close to family. We’ll be moving in early August, just in time for Isaac to start kindergarten in his brand new school. The next time you see us, we will probably have melted into a puddle, so be sure to splash in and say hi!"
I do remember that we were relishing this warm, green moment of spring while thinking about the snow that was falling back in Pinedale.
