I can’t believe we’ve been in Kentucky for seven months. It feels like just yesterday Scarlett was chasing bears in North Bend! How time flies!
Our time in Lexington has been pretty good. We have fallen in love with the friendliness of people in Kentucky. Their smiles and kindness have made Kentucky feel like home, even though we haven’t been here very long.
One thing that we like about being in the south is how close we are to so many different places. Upstate New York is just a nine hour drive. Tennessee is just a couple hours away. Chicago is just six hours. To east coasters these may seem like long driving times, but to someone from the northwest they are amazing!
Seven months is also how long it has been since we lost our son. It hasn’t always been easy, especially not being close to the people we love the most.
In a weird way being somewhere new has been nice at times. Not everyone knows what happened so we don’t get all of the sympathy, which is hard for me to deal with. Chris and I have just had each other to count on, and it has brought us close together.
All and all being in Kentucky is wonderful, I just wish it were closer to Washington and Edmonton!
