Our last Thursday night dinner is tonight and I’m not prepared to say goodbye yet. The last week before you move is always the most busy and emotional. You have thoughts such as, “Should we really be doing this? Are we crazy? NOOOOOO…..!!!!” In our hearts we know this is right for our family and I’m looking to the adventure aspect to guide our excitement. But the goodbyes cause a deep ache on the insides. We’ve been here 10 years and this is where Matt and I built a life together. Our friendship, dating, marriage, birth of our children. It’s all been here. The memories this city holds are vast.
Meals with friends
Seeing friend’s children come into the world and others leave the world too soon
Mosquitos in July
Strawberries in June
Scrapped knees outside our house and apple trees that smear the pavement with brown goo
Music and jazz in the summer
Quiet and lonely winters
A bouquet of friends
…… onto another adventure as a huge chapter in a lovely book closes shut.
