Everybody’s Moving to Nashville

That’s what it’s about though right? — Meeting people and moving that is.

Movin’ Out

Wrapping up

  • That first time you run an errand and don’t even think to check the map or gps.
  • When your mail starts coming without that pale yellow sticker.
  • When you hear a news item about the town or state you just left and realize it doesn’t apply to you.
  • That first time you hear ‘your song’ (or band) on a local radio station.
  • The first time you notice there’s a neighbor who’s seen you get out of your car every day for two weeks and you finally pause to say hi.
  • You do something for the second or third time (like a jog or a bike ride) that you realize is becoming part of your new life.
  • You give out your new address and it sounds normal. Like really normal.
  • You meet someone new and learn more about them than just their name. And when you leave (the pub, the hike, the church) you say, “See ya next time.”
