In November of 2006, Brian and I hitched up our wagon and began our arduous journey across the country from New Hampshire to Oklahoma. Over hill and over dale, over highways and byways, we trekked with eyes fixed on the road and our bright and shiny futures ahead. Houses were cheap in Oklahoma--we could buy one! The cost of living was less--we could really pursue our dreams of painting and playing music! We'd be closer to Brian's family! It was going to be a new chapter in our lives--a chapter filled with new sights and sounds and wide open spaces in which to grow!
