We're finally here, in Saratoga Springs, NY. We arrived yesterday, and I'm excited and so happy to be with Douglas, but mostly it's surreal right now. Being in a completely new place always is hard for me. And I am not looking forward to saying bye to Elizabeth at the airport tomorrow. But life moves so fast. And it will get better.

The drive was not as bad as I thought it would be - long but the land was so different than in the South, so it was pretty to see how it changed as we drove. The best part - stopping in Scranton, PA. We were hoping to find a good Scranton sign to take some pictures with, so we stopped at the visitor's center. We did not expect to find...this. Huge painted Office character heads and a perfect Scranton sign.

The rest of my week will be unpacking and trying to set up our apartment, so I can get back into a routine as quickly as possible. Hope everyone is having a good week so far.


  1. Welcome to Upstate NY! Saratoga is beautiful, especially in the summer. You will love it, I'm sure! It looks like all of the Office characters except Meredith are painted, hahaha. Is she painted or is that just a photo?

  2. Thanks! I'm enjoying it here so far - can't wait until I get a little more used to the area. Everyone is painted but Meredith!! She is just a photograph! We though that was so funny. It makes me happy that someone else noticed!

  3. Since you're new to the area I thought you might want to know about cool things going on. This craft fair and farmer's market sponsored by Etsy is every saturday throughout the summer in Troy (about a 20-30 min drive south for you). It's a Here is the Facebook page link for details:


Thank you so much for reading and taking the time to say something back. I love hearing what you have to say...
