Her goodbyes started when our family and closest friends came to celebrate her 19th birthday and wish her farewell. At the end of the night we all wrote her well wishes on Chinese lanterns and set them off into the night sky.

My parents, Nana & Papa are the sweetest Grandparents ever!
It's a horribly blurry picture but it's the best I have
My girls sent the last lantern off
It was a beautiful way to end the night
Our family of four packed up and made the drive to Honey's new home and spent the weekend together getting everything ready for her freshmen year at college.
Saying goodbye was as I expected it to be. I hated driving off but knowing that she was one, only a 4 hour car ride away and two, will be coming home once a month for a weekend visit made it easier. It's still strange not having her home every night but I know she's ready to take on life and will do a fantastic job at anything she faces!

Our last good-bye
I think I can finish things up in couple more trips, hopefully I can time them just as I'm ready for a kid fix.
Your turn. What's up?
