I have mixed emotions with this anniversary. It's so funny how time has a way of going excruciatingly slow and crazy fast at once. In some ways it's been a great year, and we've built a little home with so many memories of our baby girl, but at the same time I can't fight this feeling that it's still not really our home.
I don't know, it's hard to explain, it's just that when I land in the MSP airport it still doesn't feel like my airport. And when I'm driving around town it doesn't feel comfortable and automatic, and I end up missing exits a lot. Which could just be chalked up to my extreme lack of direction and/or navigation skills, but still.
At the same time, I know I'll ball like a baby when we leave this place to go back to Colorado (some day). Our girl has seen a lot of good days, and a lot of snowy days, in this here state. I just wish I had some ruby slippers so I could click-click-click my way home every once in a while.
P.S. Ryan will surely complain that there is only one pic of him and the baby in this post, so I'd just like to say, for the record, that he is a poor, poor sport about family photos and he arrived fashionably late. Which resulted in just this one photo.
