DUKE wants to keep us!
The results are in - and it looks like we will be sticking around here for Brian's 3 years of Ophthalmology residency! Am I excited? Absolutely!
In all fairness, it wasn't our top choice...or even our second. We had ranked Duke 3rd behind Iowa and Michigan - but now that we've found out, I can honestly say that if I had it to do all over again, I would have ranked Duke at least number 2...and maybe even number 1. (Of course, I'm focusing on all the wonderful things about Durham, and all the horrible things about Iowa!) I've been surprised at how excited I am, actually. I thought I was ready for a change, but I really do love it here in Durham. I have loved it from the first day we moved here - literally. There are no sad feelings at all - there are no regrets, what ifs or (best of all) goodbyes.
I love Duke's campus;
I love the parks;
I love the trees lining the freeway;
I love berry picking;
I love the duck pond;
I love the popcorn trees;
I love that Eno Valley State Park is so close;
I love that we're close to the beach;
I love that we're close to the mountains;
But the very best thing of all - I love my wonderful friends! I wish I had pictures of everyone who has made my life here fabulous...but I do have pictures of a lot of you. :)
