One of the less obvious benefits of our move to Virginia is something that I am just now really realizing.
For the last few years I have seen my maternal grandparents (and most of my extended family) about once a year, when we go to Michigan in the summer. My maternal grandparents do visit my family in Virginia, but I am rarely there when they are. It's kind of a bummer, but we deal with it.
Anyway, now that we will be living in Virginia, we are so excited to be able to see my Grams and Gramps more often! As a matter of fact, they will be visiting in October, very soon after we arrive. I am so excited to see them!!
