This seems to have become a year of goodbyes for me. Some good, as in "Goodbye debt. Don't let the door hit you on the..." And others hard. Too hard to write about.
Yesterday I said goodbye to my sister and her Chuck Norris impersonating husband after a quick weekend visit. It was so nice to see them, even if Chuck wasn't feeling his kung-fuiest.
I also said goodbye to my "little" brother, who will soon be venturing off for the wild nations of Switzerland and France, with a little Luxembourg and a tad of Belgium thrown in for good measure. He'll be gone for two years doing something he believes in and cares very deeply about and I am excited for him. How often do we have the chance to really put ourselves out there and commit to a task whole heartedly? But I will miss him. Tremendously. And even though I know I'm not supposed to, he might come out of his French Lyon flat one day to find me there for a surprise visit. Good luck bubba. I know you'll do great things.
So Goodbye. Farewell. Adios. Au Revoir. And See You Soon.
