Today was the day. I packed up my car full of clothes, books, shoes, picture frames, mirrors, and memories. Played "tug-of-war" with some items, but managed to fit them all in. Revved the engine & drove. Drove away from 4 years of memories.
.Cold Winter mornings on campus.
.Hot summer afternoons at Rigby Lake.
.Riding bikes.

.Slipping on icy walkways wishing to be home in California.
.Making so many new friends.
.Watching friends leave and return from missions.
.Watching friends get married and start families.
.Laughing until I cried.
.Late night chats with all my favorite girls.
.Feeling EVERY emotion in 1 day.
.Smiling even though you failed.

.Living on my own & experiencing independence.
.Remembering all the dates with countless boys.
.Remembering the jerks who brought me closer to my Mom & girlfriends.
.Meeting the love of my life.
Every year, I knew I would come back.
Not this time.
Now, I find myself driving away from Rexburg and memories to not return in a few short months. This time, I will leave and go to a new city. A new place to call "home". A place to settle down and start over. A place to make new
