Goodbye Norman, Hello Kansas

I had this quote in my office.  I thought it was appropriate for new freshmen that sometimes hang on to the past "good thing."  Today it applies to me too.  
"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end."
In the fall of 1995, I arrived at the University of Oklahoma in Norman.  I went pot-luck with roommates and really didn't know a soul there.  My home town had about as many people as I had in my new freshmen class.

Like it was yesterday, I can remember thinking Norman was SO BIG.  I couldn't remember how to get anywhere but to my car to the road to my hometown.

That was 16 years ago.

Today all my earthly possessions are packed into a truck.  Tomorrow my soon-to-be-husband, my mom, Mick (my dog), and I are driving to Kansas to move me into my new home.  My new life.

Norman, I will miss you.  You've been good to me.  You've become home.  But I have a new beginning that is waiting for me.  And I cannot wait to start the journey.
