We made it to Washington! The weeks leading up to the Road Trip were busier than we anticipated, as all moves have a tendency to be.  With 30+ hours of driving and one car load of belongings, bunnies and gerbils, we made it safely to our destination.  The scenery was beautiful, transitioning from flat farmland… Continue reading We Moved!
