See You at Lunch

Goodbyes are hard. Especially when we have said a lot of goodbyes the past month. Everything seems to be "the last time I..." see this or that friend, go to my favorite coffee shop, eat at various restaurants throughout Seattle -- the list just goes on. Everyday has a new last. And while we are very excited for this new adventure, the goodbye part is still hard.

Two weeks ago, I said goodbye to one of my closest friends and just today I said goodbye to two other very close friends. All three of these amazing women have families of their own and while I know they will do everything in their power to come visit us, I also know that life can easily get in the way. But with that said, these women are my people -- they have been in my life for many years and we have all been through some fun, happy, wild and crazy times together.  Almost all of my favorite memories from various stages throughout my life have included at least one of these ladies.

Because we are leaving in a few short days, today has been the hardest thus far. I was okay walking into a completely empty house yesterday or riding the ferry one last time as a family. I am okay with spending our last nights in our house (we are on a blow up mattress so that helps with the situation) but somehow saying goodbye to more friends was just plain hard. It made the move that much more real.

One of these lovely ladies and her family have a saying that is their way of saying goodbye.  Instead of goodbye - they say "see you at lunch."  It makes it fun, not final.  And it actual much easier than saying goodbye.

So to all of our friends and family -- we will see you at lunch!
