You’ve Just Been Passed By A Toaster on Wheels

After two flight delays we finally made it home early at 1 o’clock early Tuesday morning. I spent the day unpacking, doing laundry and opening up a huge pile of mail ~ both email and snail mail. 

The Fashionista leaves for her 3 months internship on Thursday morning so even though I have TONS to share with you, I know that you understand that right now I want to spend time with my girl, help her pack and make sure her Scion is road trip worthy.

My heart is breaking a little. Saying goodbye just never gets any easier when it comes to kids does it?

Welcome home! And no, it never does get easier. But the joy of seeing them make their own way through life far outweighs the sadness of missing them. I promise!

Some day I'm gonna meet this daughter of yours! She'll be just fine because she's got you as her mama, and you're an amazing mama.

God Bless,
Meri

I would be very surprised if you didn't spend the time with your beautiful daughter as she gets ready to leave for three months.
And we will be here when you get back to blogging. :)

And Fashionista, have fun while you are away and be sure you keep in touch with your Mom. She will be so lonesome. Cheers!

Laura,
Each stage of our children's lives tug at heartstrings when it ends but there are more smiles and lots of love ahead. I remember how I felt when Emily decided on Stamford -- and that's only a four hour drive! The one bright side is knowing that you did you and Mr Decor did a good job and things are as they should be -- your daughter is a confident, independent young woman!
Bravo to YOU Mama! :)
Your Friend,
Deborah
