First of all. Tonight’s dinner was somewhat bittersweet although I have a feeling that I may see her between now and Friday-(potentially?) But my good buddy, Andrea is leaving. She’s leaving Raleigh to be with her fiance’ for a month then they are heading to CA.
I added this song (Click the title), because it’s:
A) somewhat relevant to the message I’m trying to convey in this post. but most importantly:
B) to lighten the load of one of my best’s moving across the country and to:
C) give my girls from home a chuckle at the fact that this IMMEDIATELY took me back to middle school dances from 3-6…PM (*Yes..we had school dances right after school).
I wrote a little note in some books that I returned to Andrea this past weekend that said that I could not be “happier about this phase of her life,” and I mean EVERY word of that. I’m SO sad about the idea of Andrea not being within an arm’s reach from me, but the guy she’s marrying, well, he’s just great, so how can I argue with that?.. I genuinely couldn’t be happier for the two of them.
I plan on visiting.
I know that I’ll see Andrea between now and time for the wedding (my good friend, and her sister-Lauren is having a baby in March), but things just seem so ‘final’ now. I’ve been avoiding this moment in my head, but knew that this day was going to come sooner rather than later.
So Andrea, as I mentioned in my note..I couldn’t be happier for you and this next phase of your life. (Definitely can’t wait to celebrate in September!)
Just tell your new gfs in CA that they have some big shoes to fill (not that they can replace us by any means) for your girls in Raleigh.
