So I have one more week of State College! It's very weird to think about.
I'm enjoying the final days, and trying to experience all the things that only this town has to offer.
Creamery ice cream, Gemelli bread, Irving's sandwiches and Elk Creek Cafe.
Kevin and I are going there tonight for the last time! So sad! That's where we became official! So there are a lot of memories there.
One more week of The Tavern! Oh boy. I enjoy a lot of the people there and it has definitely become a comfort place but I am ready to get out of the food service for a little bit. (I might have to go back eventually, but I'm not thinking about that at the moment.) My two closest friends from work gave me a framed picture of themselves in their Tavern uniforms and I love it, it makes me smile every time I look at it!
So I am focusing on packing, we have so much stuff. And I'm trying to get everything in boxes before we leave. So when I drive back up all we have to do is put the stuff in the truck and GO. I decided I'm gonna take Moochie with me to State College and then to Tennessee so I hope her poor old heart can make the trip, while the other cat, Toffer will be having a meltdown. It's going to be a long trip down there. haha.
But I have made some stamps. And proofed them very quickly. I am trying not to create more anything, until I move. haha.
I was skimping on the ink, but I just wanted to get an idea of what they look like. The fox's nose I will probably make white, same with the bunny. The owl just cracks me up.
I am bringing a lot of linoleum down with me to Knoxville so I will be cutting bigger projects while making more stamps like the ones above. I want to get back to floral prints. I really enjoyed designing those and carving it out.
I'm not a hundred percent sure what I'll be doing down in Knoxville, and yes I am a little anxious about that but at the same time it's exciting. I kinda like not knowing. I'll figure it out as we go because I have to.
People have been having different reactions to my move. They'll ask where I am going, and then why, and I tell them that my boyfriend has a job down there and that I am going with him, they then ask what is he doing and quickly ask how long I have been with him because somehow that will validate me going with him? I'm sensitive to the questioning because I have always been independent and I know what people are thinking because I have thought it about other women in the past. But bottom line is, I love him, I'm choosing the relationship and I'm completely comfortable with that decision. It's funny one side is completely judgmental and then the other finds it romantic. I'm a little bit of both.
And here's a photo of Sebastian because I think it's cute! I will miss this fat little cat!
