...and we are off! first off: smithfield, virginia, obx, beach week, lots of sun, family, and enjoying. then finland! i officially declare this blog to be a travel blog for the next three months. needless to say, we are super duper excited (and at the same time a bit sad that we had to say goodbyes to our first, gorgeous, apartment today. we loved that place and made such good memories there...like me tipping a way heavy amp on thomas' toe.....)! but, for now, we are homeless, tired, and SO ready for this adventure! stay tuned!
