One of the things I'll miss

I love all the different views of Mt Ranier I get in Western Washington, and especially the ones from an airplane taking off out of Seatac.
 

 
Good news though- we found a place to live! We're going to be in Shelbyville, IN. It is such a cute, small town about 20 miles from Indianapolis. I've been researching the community and it appears there are a lot of cool things happening there.  And, I must say, those Hoosiers are the nicest. I just got off the phone with my new landlord and she told me she put toilet tissue in the bathrooms for us. She also said she'd have "her guy" mow the lawn so it looks nice when we get there. I am not used to landlords trying to make things more comfortable for me.
 
The house here is a maze of boxes, and I think I've already done 3 trips to Goodwill. It's starting to come together, thanks, too, to my parents coming last weekend to help! My mom is like a professional mover in the dining room!
 
More updates soon.

Ah! Mount Rainier! When I flew to Mexico out of Vancouver it was evening. The sun was setting and Mount Rainier sat there in all her glory in the most beautiful shades of reds, pinks and yellows. The pilot was so impressed in announced he was going to fly as close to her as possible so we could get the best view. It was truly memorable. Anyway! So happy you found a place - good luck with the move and settling in. Sending love for a smooth landing. xoDonna

Wow, that's a long way to move! Washington will miss you. I've lived here almost my entire life but I know the time will come to move to warmer climate one day. I will miss the mountains here.
Congratulations!
