The 2 weeks before I left for the Peace Corp to move to Moldova for about 27 months have been filled with celebrations, tears, laughter, and much joy as I prepared to embark on a new chapter in my life. My friends and family know how to celebrate and make someone feel loved and I know I will dearly miss this place and the people that I have called home for so long.
Over the Memorial Day weekend, after an amazing wedding uniting 2 great friends in Baltimore, my friends took me on an adventure full of surprises. I wanted to write more on this, but my dear friend and previous housemate documented the weekend very well over on her blog… check it out here!
The weekend was full of so much sweetness, I still am trying to take in all that happened. Thank you friends, for such a sweet, adventure-filled surprising time. I love you all.
There have been many celebrations during that time and I am oh, so grateful to have been celebrated well and to be able to say “until next time” to so many people. This gal is thankful for all of you near and far and for your friendship, love, and support in this next chapter of my life.
There were so many photos and I’m not able to include all of them in this blog post, but I’ll try to share them soon on Facebook.
Then, one evening my small group ventured out to the outdoors to Jeremy’s cabin he has been building for the past 2+ years for a campfire and cookout. Some people ended up staying overnight. Sparklers and burning some items included. A great crew and fun times. 🙂
The night before I left in between packing my bags, a few ladies got together to send me off with wine, cheese, and prayer for the adventure ahead. Such a sweet time with these lovely ladies.
