It All Ends Here

Okay, it doesn't all end. But a chapter is ending. Tomorrow at 8 a.m. the movers come to take all of our stuff to our new apartment. Rather than worrying about whether or not it will all get done (as I am prone to do, especially considering I woke up this morning stressed about it) I instead am opting to take a little trip down memory lane. Let's take a look at what's happened in the past two years:

(I really wish this could be a video montage. I think it'd be altogether too fitting).

All in all, it's been a pretty good two years. It's nice to take a break from all the stress of moving and be nostalgic for a moment. I don't know if I'll be properly sentimental until all the packing is done, but this is the place I have lived the longest since I graduated high school, in June '05. Two years is a long time (well, at least it is when you're 24).
To Winthrop. You've treated us well.

Gah! This is a fantastic (and impressive) photo montage of our Winthrop days!! It's making me nostalgic just sitting here. And yes, I think the nostalgia will grow more intense when the packing is done. It might almost be like the last scene in Friends when we all drop our keys on the counter...

I agree with Ashley! I just teared up a little bit at my desk. I love this. And I love you three!
