Goodbye...

Goodbye...
...friends down the street.
...playground and basketball court across the street.
...babysitting sweet kiddos down the street and beyond.
...bedroom plastered in quotes and memories with my stuff lying everywhere.
...house, where so, so many memories were made.
...beaches that seem to have more rocks than sand, and yet still are some of my favorite places in the world.
...Tillamook ice cream and cheese.
...sunsets that never cease to take my breath away.
...Seattle, with its Space Needle, market where fish are thrown and the best Greek yogurt is served, and fountains that kids play in.
...hauling cartons of milk and bags of bagels delivered by the milkman into the house every Thursday.
...bike rides down gravel roads.
...Mt. Rainier peeking out of the ever-present clouds, snow still coating her even in the summer.
...forests that never cease to remind me of Narnia.
...sound of rain pittering and pattering outside my window nearly every day.
...cloudy days and cloudy nights.
...walking to the mailbox with high hopes of a letter or package.
...lakes, ferns, and mosses that make the world look magical.
...picking blackberries in the summertime and eating them like candy.
...coffee shops that serve the best cocoas and mochas.
...sunshiny days that everyone in the Pacific Northwest lives for, because when the sun is out, there is no more beautiful place in the world than here. 
...trips to the Oregon coast on weekends. 
...spot on the map that I've come to love, the place that I've come to call home
Goodbye, home.
I miss you. 


As I'm sure you can tell by this post, my family is moving from the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We're heading to the Lone Star state! Although I already miss this place I've come to call home, I'm excited to see what God has in store for me in Texas! 
 Because of my move, I'll be taking a hiatus this May-minus one special post. ;) Don't worry, I'll be back in June! =) Until then... See you soon!

    Also, you nearly gave me a heart attack with that title. XD

      Haha, I thought I might, which is one reason I put that title up. xD

  5. Yikes you scared me. I thought you were leaving the blogosphere and I would have been sorely unhappy if that happened...

    Wow, from Seattle to Texas? Now there is a big move. Hope everything goes well, Micaiah!

    1. Haha, that’s one of the reasons I titled it goodbye. Aw, don’t worry, I won’t be leaving the blogosphere! =)

      It is a very big move, and a bit of a culture shock as well! Thank you! =)

  6. Wow! What a big move. Love your adventurous attitude, as always. <3 Sorry for everything you have to say goodbye to.
    I've never made such a big move, but we're moving out of the only house I remember living in this summer, so I relate to this a little.
    See you in June, my friend!!

      Aw, I’m so sorry that you have to leave your house! Even moving houses can be hard, because of all the memories that four walls can hold. I’ll be thinking of you and praying for you as you make this big change, my friend!

  8. Goodbyes are always hard. I can't wait to see what God has in store for you next, though! And hey, you'll be in my state, so maybe we'll have to meet up sometime!

  9. Welcome to Texas! I apologize in advance for the heat and the mosquitoes, but Texas is a great state to live in! And that's a really impressive move - I hope that it goes well for you all. I know it's hard for you to leave the place that you've lived in for so long and have so many memories of, but I hope that you are able to make many, many new happy memories at your new home.

    1. Thanks, True! =) Haha, it's all right about the heat and mosquitoes. I'll just huddle inside with ice cream and books. xD Aw, you're so sweet, True. Thank you so much for your kind words! =)

I love your comments. To me, they're sweeter than a mug of salted caramel hot chocolate. Please keep your comments clean though. I don't want to have to delete your notes. Thank you! =)
