august will be the last month of the sky is big in pasadena.
i have accepted a position at salford mennonite church in harleysville, pennsylvania. we will be moving in september, so august will be my farewell month to the city of pasadena. when we moved here from virginia i posted a list of the ten things i would miss most about harrisonburg. i figured that would be a good way to end our time here, so each day i will be doing one final rundown of life in this great city. i have prepared two lists - ten things i won't be sad to leave behind, and twenty of my absolute favorite things about pasadena.
today we have arrived at #1.
#1 - friends
i almost can't write these words without getting a bit choked up. without our friends, pasadena would never have felt like our home. without our friends, pasadena never would have become a place we longed to return to.
we met an incredible array of wonderful people during our time here - not all are pictured above. some of you are still very much in our lives - even if you don't live right next to us anymore. some of you we knew for only a short time but you left a lasting impact on us. some of you we met through school, others through church, a few through mutual friends, and even a few of you through this blog.
thank you for being such a big part of our lives.
and thank you for making pasadena our home.
