In less then 12 hours I will be on a plane flying back home to New York. To my family. To where I belong.
This trip has been a wonderful experience, the perfect length, and a great escape from my normal.
Darren and I lived in North Carolina for almost four years. It was nice to re-visit the "South". I didn't realize how much I missed hearing the southern accent and being outside the week before Thanksgiving and not having to wear a heavy coat, a scarf and gloves. It has been a wonderful visit but it is time for me to go home.
Bobbi and I have known each other since 1st grade. It was so nice to meet some of her friends and co-workers and to get a little glimpse into her life here in Virginia. I'm grateful to her and Mike for welcoming me into their home and for showing me a great time. Strengthing core relationships helps make sense of lose ends. I've enjoyed their company and conversations, immensely.
Tomorrow morning I will fly back
to my home
to my husband
to my sons
to where I belong.
Thank you Bobbi and Mike for a wonderful time. I am so thankful to have you in my life, still, after so many years, so many changes and so many memories.
I hope you continue to do the things you enjoy and love. Continue taking care of each other and living in the moment. You have a beautiful life here in Virginia. I am happy for you both and wish all things good for you.
Thank you for the laughs and the smiles. It's been a blast.
Baby, I'm coming home! See you soon.
