8 years ago today..........

8 years ago today, I made the biggest move of my life.

8 years ago today, hubby and I got caught in a snow storm in Vega, Texas. (pop 880)

We spent the night on a floor of a church while our UHaul was stuck in the snow.
We spent our only $50 in cash on a tow truck.
We watched "The Postman" alongside the mayor of the town.
It was -2 degrees on the bank sign down the street.
The Baptist church was full, so they opened up the Methodist church just for us.

We sent the church a $50 check along with a picture of us in front of Alcatraz.
We never heard from the church, but our check was cashed.

We had only spent 12 days together before I moved to CA to be with him

8 years ago today.

Gosh, I remember this event so well, too. And I also remember you storing all your stuff in our awful basement that eventually flooded...yeah, sorry about that! I swear, there was something about moving from TX or OK to CA in a U-haul and having weird events take place!

Can't believe it's been 8 years---wow...
