Today is not only my sister's birthday, but it's my grandma's too. Even though we are 2,000 miles apart, Cedric has been doing a little decorating. August is a busy birthday month in our families (grandparents, parents, sisters, nieces, and nephews) and I can't remember the last time we were around for all of them. Before moving here, we lived eight hours away and didn't have much money in the travel budget. But, hopefully, this will be our last year of missed birthdays (and other things)!
Speaking of moving: a few days ago marked the passage of a full year since we moved to Spokane: Michigan to Minneapolis on the first day, Minneapolis to Billings on the second day, and on the the third day, we arrived in Spokane. It was such a beautiful drive and an exciting adventure. Maybe that's why I've been craving a road trip lately!
Anyway, we will probably commemorate the event by eating black beans and ramen noodles for dinner since that's all we could afford for the first month or two.
Happy anniversary Spokane!
