Life's about changing & the New Year

I thought I would go ahead and share a few pics of our NYE. We stayed home and enjoyed a fun night with family and friends!! I got a few cute festive things and some cute little tiara's for us girls to wear. I also made some little "Midnight Snack" favors. We had a good time and I really enjoyed just being home and celebrating there.

It wasn't a wild 'n crazy night, but it was fun. My parents left this morning for TX. My Mom is finally going back with my dad since she found a job there. It was really hard saying bye this morning. My parents and I all started crying, we are just so close that it's hard for us to be apart. But I know that it's not the end of the world, at least I still have parents, even if they don't live close by anymore. I can still pick up the phone everyday and talk to them, and I know that there are people out there who would love to be able to do that, so I keep reminding my self of that. But at the same time - this is my reality and it sux! It sux that I cant just hop in the car on a Friday and go spend the weekend with them - it's just too far to do that. Hopefully I'll be able to fly out there every so often, so I guess I better start saving now, ha ha! My Mom and I are just SOOO very close, best friends and so that is going to be SO hard not having her here. But it will be okay. As the song goes . . "Life's about changing, nothing ever stays the same." So true!!

Luckily I leave Monday for New Orleans for my new job. Part of me just wishes I could just stay home in my pj's for a few days and feel blah - but I know it's not good for me to do that. So the fact that I have to go out of town and stay busy is good I think. It will keep me from letting myself become too sad.

Okay - so after I said that - I had to go find that video!! I remember watching this when I was a little girl. It is the sweetest video, sad yet so true." Time will ease your pain!"

Lindsey- I am praying for you. I know this time is so very hard for you. You are so use to being near them. But I want you to know that the time apart will only make all the times you see them that much better. I look forward to flying out there with you to see them. I remember being there for you the first time when they had to move. I remember us curling up on the couch & tearing up together.

You are one special best friend. You know my in's & outs. We have ALWAYS been there for each other, so please know you have my hand even though we are at a distance too.

I love you so much!!!

Awe Lindsey! I'm so sorry, I understand how you feel, my mom and I are super close. M and I eventually want to move to Colorado and I know it is going to be so hard leaving my momma-even if she does drive me half crazy sometimes! ;)

We are here for you! Good luck with your new job, I must be behind because I didn't know you got a new job...congrats!
