aaaand she's off

the hardest job you'll ever love.

after living with this absolutely marvelous little person for over 21 years we are now, after doing our job correctly, sending her off on her own.

why is this so hard? she's close, though. that's a comfort. she's a 4.5 hour bus drive away, so it's doable. not so far as to be a logistical issue but not so close as to tempt us to intrude too often.

she's entering the next phase of her young life, one brimming with possibility and adventure. she's going to school in another city, another state. she's well on the way to becoming who she is, will be, needs to be. her future is limitless.

we are so proud.
