We are so lucky and fortunate to have so many wonderful friends and family in our lives. Our hearts are so full thinking about all of the incredible people we have in our lives.
We know without a shadow of doubt, our family and friends support and love us unconditionally. We help each other to stay positive when life gets rough and together we roll through the good and the bad times in our lives.
We have been so fortunate to be able to celebrate many joyous occasions with you all and cry together during our not so joyous occasions.
We have encouraged each other to reach towards our dreams and to breath and relax when things are not going the way we intended them to go.
We learn more and more about each other each day. We’ve learned how to encourage each other and to help each other reach our dreams and desires.
When there is distance between us we know that we will always be able to reconnect as if no time has passed and pick up right where we left off.
We laugh. We cry. We celebrate.
We push each other outside of our comfort zones to help each other grow.
We party together, we chill together, we pretend to do yoga together when all we really wanted to do was to drink mimosas and eat bad food together.
We have had many GNOs, girls weekends, and girls vacations together. We laugh, we fight but in the end we love and encourage each other all the way.
When life doesn’t go as planned and we have an uphill battle ahead of us, we remind each other that everything happens for a reason and that it will all work out in the end.
The bonds of our friendships are extremely strong. They hold up to life’s demands, distance, and time. I know no matter what life brings us, we will be able to get through it with the help of friends and family, and we feel so lucky to be able to say that.
Allan and I are not ones to be shy about saying “I Love You” if we feel it! If we tell you that we love you, it’s because we truly cherish each and every one of you!
I know this is cliche but true…you never know which day will be your last, so make sure you tell the people you love just how much you love them.
To all of our children, our friends and family, Allan and I love you all so very much and feel blessed to have each and every one of you in our lives. Thank you for loving us equally and sharing your lives with us as well. Thank you for supporting us and understanding our decision to make this move.
It wasn’t an easy decision to leave the ones we love, but we also know that you all live your own lives how you want and if you don’t, we encourage you to do so.
Enjoy life. Enjoy the friendships you make during all of the adventures you go through. Make new friends and keep your true friendships always. We don’t feel like we left you. We like to feel that maybe we have encouraged you all to realize that there is so much more in this world to explore. Best way to explore it is with those that you love.
So all of our friends and family, we invite you to visit us or to visit another country, state, even another city and meet new people. Learn their culture, language…(wish me luck on learning Spanish) and know…We love and will miss you all!
