If you had asked me at the beginning of the year what my family and I would be doing during the summer, moving back to Hawaii would have never come out of my mouth, let alone cross my mind.
But it happened. We moved.
|Sad panda face on the plane. Not my best, but hell, I was sad.|
Honestly, I was in denial for the past 4 months from the moment I learned from the hubs it was going to happen. Total denial. I didn't want to fathom the amount of work that lay ahead: packing, fixing, planning, fixing, cleaning, fixing, moving, fixing. Did I mention all the fixing? I didn't want to deal with the emotional aspects of leaving the place we had made our home for the past 6 years behind.
But it happened. First of all, I want to say, Thank you, St. Louis. You are a great city and county -- no matter what the news says about you.
Thank you, Lindbergh School District in St. Louis County. My kids would not be how they are without your phenomenal teachers and staff at this school district.
|Lindbergh Auditorium. All of my kids have performed here in some form or fashion.|
Thank you, City of Fenton, for being such a great community for my growing family.
|Loved our neighborhood.|
Thank you, little house. You were so perfect for my family.
|I miss you.|
Okay. I'm starting to get teary-eyed and sad. I think I need a minute. Excuse me.
