One of the perks of moving across the country is the opportunity to meet all sorts of friends. We have made very special connections in every place we've lived......with friends and family.......and cherish the time spent with so many important people in our lives.
With that happiness comes the difficult part of saying goodbye. It's usually us moving and saying goodbye.....but in this case, the McNamaras are off to Sacramento in a few weeks. We've done everything we can by begging them to stay......even offering the gazebo for shelter!
(I kid. Unless they'd do it.)
They have family in the area, so I know they'll visit. And, we plan to do the same. But, it's the day-to-day contact that I'll miss the most. Car pooling, ballet, sneaking kids into Legoland, birthday partes, Disneyland, family visits and more.
Even Costco trips with 5 kids. I'll miss that, too, Allison!
I'm drawing on my history with Jillian for strength......we've become even closer, oddly enough, with the miles put between us. I know the same will be for Allison and me.
She brought me this book recently. Tears were flowing. We all laughed as we read through it. Thought I would share:
I will likely be a mess over the next several weeks. Please just pretend like it's the norm (as if it isn't!) and humor me.
