How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard!

There is really no way I can put into words the outpouring of love and support we received this weekend from our forever friends. Friday night was the bon voyage bash hosted by Betsy and Gordon. From the food and decorations, to the cake and singing, our friends went all out! I felt so aware of how great life really is!

Saturday night, the leftovers were moved over to Debbie and John’s house where they hosted the gang for more festivities (thanks for the use of your W/D, guys). Yayyy…I didn’t have to say goodbye to anyone the night before.

On Sunday, we had everyone over for pizza. It was fun to have everyone at our home.  And, since we never formally christened Nautilus, it was a perfect time to do so! We performed the appropriate ceremony and asked the seas to watch over us.


What makes leaving easier is knowing these same friends will be cheering us along the Loop and will be waiting for us when we cross our wake!

I’m off to bed.  Tomorrow is the big day!

Over and out!
