Missing Omaha

I had no idea how much we would miss Omaha until we were gone.  I tend to live towards the future and sometimes forget to live in the now.  I enjoyed Omaha, but had I known just how much I would have missed it, I would have maybe taken it all in a little more.

I really miss... 

chatting with my friends

Having fun RDEP parties

I can't believe how little Kinnie and Andrew were when we moved there!

The beautiful gardens!

The view out our front door, it never EVER got old

The once a week dane classes at the clubhouse and cute little recitals

The rainstorms!  The buckets of water that poured from the sky and amazing lightening storms

Decorating our little window 

The visitors!

"Our" swings.  We were pretty much the only ones who used these swings since we lived on the outskirts of the complex.

Kinnie's and Andrew's little room

Letting the kids roam the front yard while I worked on dinner

The ZOO!  I miss that place soooooo much!  

The big slides downtown

The gardens in the winter

Sharon!  We miss Sharon's friendly face and small conversation.  She always gave us little homemade gifts and lots of stickers and paper.

Lucy!  Our home was sandwiched right in between Sharon and Lucy, it was the best.  I miss Lucy's sweet sweet face and deep conversations.   She was a smart lady and had a lot of opinions.  I just liked to listen to her.

Those are just a few of the things:)  Andrew asks if we are going to go back to Omaha to visit.  I would love to go back and visit someday!
