This weekend we drove from Colorado to New Mexico to visit with some good friends from Ohio who were in Albuquerque for a short stay.  We had such a refreshing time full of good food, thoughtful conversation and lots of hard laughter.  All things Josh and I didn’t realize we needed so desperately.  We were also able to stay the night with a few other friends from Ohio who are currently stationed in Albuquerque.  I love being welcomed into peoples’ homes.  Catching up on life late into the night, making beds on floors, couches, pull-out beds, making shower schedules, having breakfast together.  There’s truly something magical about the community of it.  

Josh and I traveled so frequently during or dating months and early-marriage years that spending time en-route has become like home.  There’s something deeply comforting to me about being with Josh on my way…somewhere.  We had not traveled together since we returned to Colorado after our summer here-there-and abroad.  In some large ways I hope we never feel so comfortable in one place that we forsake the departing and arriving.  On our way together.
