my "five year plan"

my mind has been a wanderer lately. i've been dreaming of living in nyc. jerem's on board and it sounds like so. much. fun. it's something i've always wanted to do. but with all the excitement it makes me feel, the thought also makes me feel homesick.

i know we could do it. and i know we would like it. a lot. which kind of scares me because
what if i never wanna come back? 

most families live in separate states. you see your parents and sisters and brothers and nieces and nephews on christmas and thanksgiving. that sounds awful.

so i'm coming back down to earth and being happy where i am. 

and i'm making a plan. 

and i said to jeremy, "how about we live in this house..until we don't."
