carolina new year: the arrival.

i set out in the wee hours of the morning
on new years eve, a saturday,
bound for raleigh, north carolina.
& as the wheels touched down, i realized -
this place will be my new home.

as i passed through the arrival gate
of the serene, modern - beautiful - RDU,
i was happy to see justin waiting for me
at the airport starbucks.
we chose our lattes - our fraps,
and departed for lunch.

woody's at city market was our
restaurant of choice - burritos & sandwiches.

then, it was finally time to head to kinston -
finally time to see where justin had been
living & working all this time without me.

i was so excited to see what kinston
simply felt like.

and i have to say - i'm happy with what i found.

Did you move to Raleigh!? One of my friends here used to go to school there & she loved it! So fun experiencing & adventuring around a new city! I moved to Savannah in August & I still feel like there are things to explore! Congrats on the new move! :)
