You Give Love a Good Name

When we got married three years ago, Jonathan and I were surprised to find that we could actually feel the positive, loving energy directed at us by our friends and family. It was a six hour high that we never expected to have again.

We are happy to say that we were wrong. As we are preparing to leave for this adventure, we are blessed to be feeling that way once again. But this time, it isn't just lasting six hours. It is lasting weeks. And it is awesome.

The outpouring of kindness we have received has humbled us. Do you want to know what you have collectively given us? You have given us words of support and encouragement, gifts and money, help with packing, places to stay after we're out of our house but before we are on the road, valuable advice and resources, invitations for us to stay with you (or your family members or friends) on our trip, medical advice and valuable travel prescriptions, storage offers (of our things and our animal), offers to sell stuff for us on craigslist after we leave and the loan of a U-Haul trailer. You have written words that bring us to tears, said words that bring us to tears, and all around made us feel like we are the most blessed people on the planet.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. We are overwhelmed and humbled by your generosity. We look forward to embarking on our journey with our souls filled to the brim and ready to pass along the love and kindness that you have shown us.

Love,
Ellen and Jonathan

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Our latest DIY adventure... Homebrew!

After participating in a few different brewery tours around town, the Curious Souls wondered "how difficult can this brewing thing really be?" Today, with a few beers (for inspiration), a few friends, and an extract kit , we decided to try it out for ourselves. Enter (stage left) End of the World Brewing... ( Vid link for the iPhone impaired ) Easy, right? Just like making stew... or tea... or stewing tea... or something... And now, we wait (quite impatiently) for the little S. cervisiae to do their job.
