thank you miami

well, this is it friends

this is our last friday and our last weekend here in miami

seems surreal really

my emotions are still all over the place but in a good way

with the exception of a few things the house is all packed up and ready to go

early wednesday morning we will be loading a huge truck with all of our belongings and then off we go to our next chapter

i feel good

did i say that already?

i feel grateful

even though i have moved plenty in my life and have had to say goodbye to dear ones many times, i still don’t like goodbyes and am not very good at them

so, i’m going to keep this short and sweet (like a cortadito)

thank you miami

thank you miami friends and family

my heart and my soul are leaving here full and happy

thank you!

happy friday and happy weekend friends

see you in asheville

(things are going to be a little quiet on here for a bit but don’t worry. i just need time to settle in)
