Almost a year.

I can't believe that it's been almost a year since G and I moved to Colorado.

A year and a couple days ago, G flew out to Denver to interview for his job with Denver Health. The next day, he got the news that he had the job and told me over the phone "well, guess we're moving to Colorado!"

After that, it was a whirlwind. G flew home and then a couple weeks later, from April 12th - 19th we spent time on vacation in Kauai. Upon returning, I was let go from my job for blogging about a co-worker and our shitty employer. (Yeah, if I've learned one thing... don't let people know your name or who you work for, and if you do, don't bad mouth them online where they can find it!) So I spent the end of April and all of May preparing for our move. (I had accepted my job offer while on vacation in Kauai!!!)

The last week of May, we moved!

While I don't miss Charleston, SC, the racism, the confederate flag being flown, proud "natives," hypocracy, ignorance, and the overall unwelcoming attitude of a majority of South Carolinians (yes, "Southern hospitality" does NOT exist there, except for the fakers), I do miss the people we befriended as well as a couple other things:

The view from our old apartment
The beach
The gorgeous sunsets
Thunderstorms and crazy weather
Shem Creek
Frogs! I love frogs!
The Cooper River Bridge Run (which I would love to attend this year, but don't have money for an airplane ticket... boo.)
Fishing... with G all the time. (And this pic is four years old, so lay off of my GAP overalls!)
Backyard BBQs with friends. (This is our friend Tim jumping onto a Slip-n-Slide. We're big kids!)
(I might mention that G took all of these pictures and one of his photos is being used in the next edition of Charleston Magazine!)

Omg wow, those are amazing shots (especially the first few). Easy to see what you'd miss.

And yeah, sucks that you got "dooced." (BWAHAHA never thought I'd get to use that term for real!)
