Goodbye Concord!

September 1st, 2016

The bay window that attracted us to this apartment so many years ago
 After nine years living in the same apartment on South Main Street in Concord, NH. I have finally moved out of my apartment. That was the longest I had ever lived in one place before. It was definitely bittersweet. Some loved ones left my life too early but others came into it to fill that place in my heart. Even my roommate changed over the years. So many good (and some bad) memories, but all of them helping me become the person I am today. From that new-graduate with a still developing brain [male brains don't fully develop until 27-29 y/o(if at all)] to today seems to have happened in a blink of an eye. Yet with a lifetime of experiences.

Strange seeing it so empty

Last meal in the empty apartment

For all the people that have come into my life some to stay and some who left as abruptly as they entered, all the races, faces and places: thank you. It has been a wonderful time and I am grateful for every moment.

As I closed the apartment door of my now vacant apartment for the last time it felt like I was saying goodbye to a good friend. And like with a good friend, it really isn't so much a goodbye as a see you later.

Until next time,



  1. Oh Dan,
    I will miss your dry sense of humor, your great list of must see movies and Trivia night at The Barley House. I wish you a safe drive down south and a wonderful start to this new chapter in yours and Kendra's life together. Please stay in touch...I will check this blog!
    Love and best wishes,

    1. Thanks Sarah! I will definitely miss those things too! That's actually high on our agenda- to find another place like the Barley House for Trivia. I think it's important to always make sure I know how little I know ;) I will definitely keep up the blogging! Hope you're well on your way to recovery:)
