A Snowy Farewell

This morning Tony and I made our way (slowly) to help with minor last minute packing and say good bye to some really good friends.

We have known Tim and Stephanie for just over a year, and in that time we have become quite fond of them. They are truly great people and we hope to be lifelong friends with them.

This morning they left to begin the next step of their journey. First, they will be visiting family for the holidays. Then they will be living in Vermont, each of them working an internship, at Yestermorrow Design/Build School. Yestermorrow is a unique design school that seems to have been created just for these guys. Their time at Yestermorrow is currently planned to last one year. Who knows where they will be next. I'm not so secretly hoping it is somewhere close to us, but you never know.

Saying good bye today felt no different than any other time we have given hugs and walked through the doors to come home. But, soon I am sure it will hit me that we can not just stop over for an unannounced visit, plan a night to make dinner together, or spend a day at the library.

Their departure was certainly bittersweet. I am beyond excited for what they will experience in the next year and the many ways they will grow, both individually and together. Yet there is the selfish part of me that will miss them tremendously.

Love you guys and wish you safe travels and wonderful memories.
