I spent the majority of my life in Seattle. A little more than majority, I guess.
In the recent months, my parents have been making some serious plans to move to Arizona. Yep. Replacing our beautiful NW weather, for the dry-retirement aged friendly weather.
And it's making me super sad.
Maybe it's because my family is super close and I've never imagined anyone moving away.. permanently. I've never imagined my childhood home going for sale, soon to end up in a stranger's possession. Never in my life have I dreamt that.
This past week I spent some time in the Phoenix area with my family - my parents were scoping out different cities they might want to move to... and they fell in love. (that's what i didn't want to happen) They haven't made any major plans to move down... they haven't gone crazy and sold our house yet.. but the chance that it could all happen in the near future scares me. I'm not gonna lie though - I would be one happy camper if I could get away from the Seattle cold come winter, and hang out with the parents in Arizona. But still... this is all so... new, sad, unnerving, scary, exciting, etc. .. for me. So many different feelings are going into this big life change that may be happening in my family.
I just had to put that out there.
