So Long, Farewell

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.

What a nice blog! I know we will all miss Bubba tremendously! I'm also jealous that you got to spend time with fam this weekend. Living far away is hard, even if you know you are doing the right thing. Plus I love the word kung-fuiest. I just might have to try and throw that into my vocabulary somehow! :)

It is definitely a mixed bag of emotions, but as you know each adventure builds us into who we are.
Of course if you head over don't forget to let me know! ;)
