Farewell Letters

Dear Mom & Dad: Thank you for the best childhood anyone could ask for.  The experiences and opportunities you gave me have completely shaped who I am today and I know I wouldn't be half the person I am today without your love and support.  You both taught me my love for travel, the theater, lake life and snooze jazz.  You also taught me to me how to be brave.  How to move across the world alone for 6 months.  How to know when a man is right for me. {My mom said she could read everything she needed to know about them the first time she looked into their eyes.  She was always right.} You taught me to say yes to every opportunity that was thrown at me. I love you both so much.  I will miss you more than I'm letting myself think about.

Dear Friends: I was going to do individual shout outs, but that became far too traumatic and as I showed you last night denial is where I like to stay.  So to all of you, you are the best friends in the entire world.  From being awkward in middle school {thanks for those pictures Allison!! Not.} to kind of getting it together through high school, and moving away and finding ourselves in college, we never lost track of each other.  When we get together it's just like the first time.  Only with less braces and better hair. I love each and every one of you so much and promise not to let any sort of distance change that.  Get ready for weekly skype wine dates and lots and lots of phone calls. My heart broke saying goodbye, but I think it's kind of awesome to love people so much it hurts. 

And for some laughs...at my going away party we attempted to bring back the emotions game!

  1. Aww, goodbyes are definitely hard- but I LOVE what you said.... that it's kinda good to love people so much it hurts. It would be weird if it was easy to say bye to them. Stay strong and just know those Skype wine dates will keep your friendship going ;)

    ANDDD those last few pictures are awesome... I love the superbowl expressions, lol!
