Our Ann Arbor Goodbye

Again, a bit overdue but here it is...

After our amazing Oregon adventure we made a quick trip to Michigan to say "see you later" to family and friends. Naturally, Eric and I decided that Ann Arbor, the city where we met, fell in love and were married, would be the appropriate choice to have a going away party!

We arrived super late/early on Tuesday AM (read: 1:30am) into DTW. We quickly found out that our rental car agency was closed for the night and we would have to wait until 5am to get a car...seriously!?! Not off to a good start. Lucky for us, Jenn worked her charm and was able to snag us a spot on the last bus back to Alamo where we got the "after midnight special" thanks to our bus driver! We were on the road in no time, with our favorite rental car, the Dodge Caliber! We had a Cali in Oregon as well!

A HUGE thank you to Christie and Jay who let us stay at their lovely home in Saline, where we could spread out and sleep in late! Thanks guys!

We spent our time in Ann Arbor eating at our favorite places and drinking Sangria at Dominick's! Yum! We ate Rubens at Zingerman's twice! So good!!

We had our "See you Later" party at Cottage Inn on Wednesday night.  We had lots of loved ones drive in from all of the state to see us and I know we both felt pretty special that night!  We felt the outpouring of love and support from our family and friends for our upcoming journey.   We were able to share our visit to Penang in November with everyone, as well. A big hug and thank you to all of you who were able to send us off!  We appreciate everyone for joining us, even on a work night :)

We spent Thursday packing our 7 suitcases before heading to the airport for our long journey to Penang via Phoenix, LAX and Hong Kong. 

To all our loved ones in the states: we love you and we will see you later!
