I really don’t miss you as much as I thought I would. With your pretty Reston Town Center and convenience to the toll road, I genuinely thought I would be sad to leave you. However, I like my new home, and with that, I like my new town.
I like the convenience of shopping being very close by. Everything is new and shiny, clean and welcoming. Our neighbors welcomed us with cupcakes, and people hold doors open for you.
I hate Costco, and I even like the Costco out here. It’s never overwhelmingly busy, it’s in a great location and I’ve been in it long enough to realize that they sell more than 4 gallon packages of pickles.
I’m still going to have to work on my commute and finding some alternate routes to lessen the time I sit in traffic on the way home, but it’s still worth it.
I drive by you everyday, Reston, but I don’t miss you. I’ve got a new home now.
PS: Quote of the Day:
The scene: Natalie, hair up, getting a drink from the fridge, Chris tooling around the kitchen.
Chris: I just want to go on record and say that I really hate that tattoo on the back of your neck.
Natalie: Yeah, me too.
….ahhhh, the things we do when we’re 23.
