Our Last Few Days in ProvoOur time in Provo has come to an end. People keep asking us if we are excited, sad, nervous, eager, etc. and depending on the moment we both usually respond "all of the above!" Obviously we are really excited for a new adventure and just to be done with the school phase of our lives. We are also nervous since we are moving to a new place, starting a new job and all of the other things that come with moving. However, when all is said and done, we both really enjoyed our time in Provo and will always look back with fond memories.
Before we moved we had to take a couple pics of our apartment so we could post it online to sell the last couple months of our contract.
Grandma came down on Saturday to take us out to lunch, wish us good luck and say farewell until the next time we get to see each other again.
Then Tuesday morning the moving truck showed up and we loaded it. When I say we, I really mean Tyson, TJ and the moving guy because I don't think I carried a single box down three flights of stairs! Lucky me huh?! Instead, as they were carrying things out of each room, I followed with the vacuum so that I could have everything clean and throw the vacuum on the back the truck before it left.
We were proud that we didn't take up the full space we were allotted which was 9' tall, 8' wide and 6' out. It did take a lot of sorting through our stuff and getting rid of a decent amount of things since we knew we had to downsize to fit in a Manhattan apartment. Tyson was the lucky one to take whatever he wanted that we had to get rid of and at one point he said, "Man, this is better than Christmas!"
Once everything was cleared out and clean, we hit up Costa Vida one last time, went to a session at the Salt Lake Temple and had one last sleepover with Trevor and Kathryn. As we passed Provo on our drive to Phoenix, AZ I was surprised to find that I felt a little sad to be leaving, but that lasted only a couple minutes when TJ reminded me of all the fun things we have ahead of us!
