Move-in day for my son #GoTerps @UofMaryland @umterps so so so so happy for him to enjoy the best years of his life. My husband and I moved in 30 years ago this same week! Time flies when you're having fun.

Move-in yesterday, drop-off today. We are so excited to see her next chapter unfold but like my sis @martinofive said, "the house is still a bit empty." I can't wait to see what trails she blazes as she creates her own @univofmaryland journey.
