Good Friends Make the Worst Goodbyes

Tomorrow we head off to our new home up in Oregon. We are finally homeowners. HOORAY! I am very excited at the prospect of living somewhere I don't plan on moving out of in a year or two. GOODBYE RENTALS!!!

Sadly, this is a bittersweet moment for me. I have never, in my entire life, had such amazing friends. Friends I'm comfortable asking for anything. Friends that share my beliefs and are living the same life that I live. Leaving them behind is the toughest part about this move. These amazing girls have taught me so much in the short time I have known them. They have shown me how to be a better mom, a better friend, and a better person. It may sound like I'm going a bit overboard and even to myself this sounds a bit mushy but there is no other way to say how amazing these women are and how jealous I am that they get to remain here with each other. We'll be back to visit but we'll miss you all in between. And you're always welcome in our home. (We'll even kick our kids out of their beds for ya!)

Thank you so much for helping me become a strong enough person to be able to take this big step toward being a real grownup.

You are awesome Mackenzie and we are going to miss you a ton! We really would love to meet up to go camping in August sometime, so, let us know if any particular weekend works best. Good luck with everything in Oregon! I'm sure you will make awesome friends up there too!
