Each day that passes gives me more of a reality check. Went into Illinois a couple of weekends ago for my FOURTEEN-year-old nieces birthday party. Yes, the caps on fourteen in necessary. We realized that that weekend was probably the last time for awhile that we will being seeing my side of the family. It was a very bittersweet feeling knowing how much we will miss all of our loved ones but are doing so to attempt a dream of ours. I went bridesmaid dress and bridal veil shopping with the sister- and mother-in-law this past week and had a fantastic time. During drinks and dinner (emphasis on drinks), we realized how few opportunities we had left to do this before we leave. We are going to miss a lot of the sisters wedding planning and seeing our beautiful, Gerber-baby niece continue to grow and showing her how to wreak havoc in her parent's home (we'll be sure to show her this in July for the sister's big day!). Another bittersweet feeling. And then there's the countless, irreplaceable friends that will be missed everyday. Bittersweet. Why bittersweet? Rob absolutely hates the word bittersweet so I feel it necessary to plaster bittersweet all over this post.
More AT specifics for all three of our audience members to read are to come so off to planning our bittersweet adventure I go.
