see ya later Grenada

It's our last night in our little apartment on our little island...

I had a hard goodbye this afternoon with the kids at the Limes.
I haven't left yet and all I can think about is coming back!  Accepting donations for a plane ticket now!

Our life is about to completely change.  I don't even know if saying we're doing a 180 is drastic enough.
This time tomorrow we'll be in the freezing cold, there will possibly be snow... and right now I'm sitting in shorts and a tank top with all the doors and windows open and I'm still hot.
In a couple weeks I have to start a new job... Lee will leave me to go study for the USMLE and we'll be living with our parents. ugh.

I cannot believe two years has gone by.  Seriously the fastest two years of my life.
But here's to the next step!
I'm excited for a new job, new friends, new places, new experiences.

I don't think reality has set in for me just yet.  It doesn't feel like we're leaving tomorrow.... and it definitely doesn't feel like we're not coming back.
aahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Praying for you as you start this new chapter :) It will be a change but before you know it, it will be life as you know it!!

You are also in my thoughts and prayers! I will miss hearing about experiences in such a beautiful country. Keep writing, but you may have to change the name to something like "Coghills in the United States". :)

Ugh. Its so hard to leave a place that you love. Hoping everything goes smoothly!!

::hugs:: leaving a place is hard. I had to move across the country this summer without my boyfriend, and it was a hard transition. But everyone said to give it six months and it would start to feel like home, and... it's getting there after four months. Much love.
