Dear Ohio,

Dear Ohio,
It will be 1 month shy of 2 years when we hit the road for our new home next Monday. These past 2 years have been filled with trials, challenges but also memories I will always cherish. I thought Columbus would be our forever home so I did fall in love with several things that I will miss. This short list is not everything but some of the top things I will miss about Columbus!
* Country Living Fair
Every fall the Ohio Village hosts the Country Living Magazine fair and after going last year this was one of my TOP things I Loved! Really..... this day at the Fair was one of my most favorite days. 
 * Food Food Food
There are several meals around Columbus that I MORE than love. It is crazy just how much I will miss certain plates of food!!! Thank you Columbus for fulfilling my foodie dreams!
 * Our Neighborhood
I will miss our neighborhood, it is a just a dream. I will miss waking up in the Summer to find Hot Air Balloons over our yard. Our little slice of life here in Columbus was so peaceful, it had everything I could want.
 * Jeni's / North Market
North Market is a place that seems to transport me to like NYC, a place that when I step inside I can find any food item my heart desires. North Market also houses Jeni's Ice Cream......Oprah was right it is most defiantly one of my FAVORITE things too!
 * Our Home
I love our home. I love the huge entry way that the dogs run up and down, I love my kitchen window that lets me look out into the neighborhood while I prep dinner, I love my huge basement perfect for storing anything and everything, I love how our families can stay and have the perfect guest suite set-up upstairs, I love the bright windows and I love our master bedroom. I really loved this home and I hope the new owners will love it as much as I did.
* Our Pond and Backyard
In Oklahoma it is too hot to enjoy too much time outside but here we spent many night on our patio and it was a true extension of our home. I loved the pond and I loved having dinner outside listening to the waterfall......
I Loved how our backyard is like a park for most of the year, I will truly miss this......
 * Kylee
I will miss my dear friend Kylee, and no this isn't goodbye but we won't be in the same state again. Kylee is one of those rare people you meet who is kind, fun, thoughtful and really has a heart of gold. I only wish I had met her sooner but if I got anything out of the job that I HATED I got Kylee! She has been a blessing in my life.
These past 2 years have also taught me several things but one stands out.......How to do anything alone, including going to the Zoo or eating alone. I have always been one that would go to a movie alone but going to a restaurant and eating alone is just something I have learned to do.

This makes me tear up a bit. I'll even miss some of it and I only got to visit once. You are in my thoughts this week.

Cherish the memories of Columbus but, just think of all there is to explore and love in Denver. I have enjoyed the Columbus journey with you in words and pictures! I can't believe I have followed your blog this long. Time sure flies by.
