So, I have hit a point in my Richmond stay where I have way too much time on my hands. We have moved out of our apartment, Matt is way, WAY away, and I have been spending a whole lot of time perusing the net for all things house!! (we close next week!)
It was an emotional weekend for the Johnson family. We moved out of our first home together. It’s not only where we first called home, it’s where Matt proposed, where we hosted many friends and family who graciously came to visit us from so far away, but also spent so many hours with friends we made here in Richmond. We are looking forward to this new chapter, but are going to miss every minute of the memories we made here.
Well we’re officially on the road to OHIO! We’re moving Matt into the apartment today, and I’ll be heading back to Richmond in the new year to finalize things. We’ll be making stops in Indiana and Kansas City after we move Matt in to spend Christmas with our families. We can’t wait!
It was terribly hard leaving Richmond this morning, but we’re excited for the new adventures to come!
On a side note, I made the mistake of wrapping all of my Christmas gifts with jingle bells this year… I guess I WILL be “Jingling All The Way!”

….Matt and I are moving to Columbus, Ohio! We are freaking out a little because we are moving him there in just one short week! I am finishing my school year and then joining him.
After four years here, it’s going to be hard to leave Richmond…this is where we first called home as newlyweds, life is certainly never dull here, but most importantly, we have made so many great friends here.
We are getting Matt a short term apartment to give us time to find a house. We drove up there last weekend and I think that was the first time I had ever been there aside from the turnpike. We need your help if you are familiar with the area AT ALL! We looked at houses in German Village, Westgate, and Short North. And by looked I mean we drove by since our focus really had to be on getting him an apartment. If you know the area, which is better? He is working in Grove City, so would need something around there…any thoughts would be much appreciated!
On the bright side…we will be closer to family! We are actually really excited for this move and has been in the works for awhile…it has been a struggle being so far from our families.
Words of wisdom are much appreciated on all fronts!
In the meantime, get excited because Richmond Treats is now just a smidge closer to Kansas City Eats!
