The beginning of this week I spent in Richmond, VA. I was there for a work related trip, having to do with some license exams I needed to take. It was a long two and a half days, but it had it high moments.
The first moment that I enjoyed, was getting to my hotel and realizing that right next door was a Famous Dave's restaurant. I had not been to Famous Dave's since leaving Utah. I actually thought we didn't have any Famous Dave's in Virginia. I was wrong :)
So, you know that I went over there one evening for dinner. They've got great BBQ and I enjoyed mine immensely. It was a good flashback to my Utah days, when I'd go with friends from church after services let out on Sunday.
Also, during my time in Richmond I sat in on a course for my licensing exam. One of the ladies in my course was from Harrisonburg as well, and ironically she had a daughter that had attended BYU, so she knew Utah. We had a lot of great conversations about life in Virginia and Utah. The people we know in common back in Harrisonburg, and several other great conversations.
I already can't believe that it has been almost a year since I left Utah. I've sure enjoyed being back in Virginia, but there are times (like the ones I just mentioned) that I can't help feeling lonesome for my "Utah Life".
Just thought I'd share.
