My good friend Anna from California gave me the card with the picture above when we were leaving CA and headed for Texas. I found it the other day and I couldn't help but feel what I felt back then. We were leaving a wonderful place. It was our first home as a married couple, and although I knew the place we were going (here) very well, I still felt sadness for what we were leaving behind. How appropriate to have found the card now as we embark on another chapter in our lives. By now most of you know that Omar has accepted a job in the Boston area and we are officially moving again. I am excited about living in a different environment and about the new experiences that come along with it, and although moving to a new place without family or friends always comes with apprehension, I know that it also comes with knowledge, opportunity, new friendships, and adventure. Who knows what awaits us. While moving here we never knew we'd start our family. Now we have two wonderful girls. I had no clue I'd meet wonderful friends to help me and support me through motherhood. I didn't know I'd gain so much and have to let it go in part. But it's the friendships and memories that stay forever, and for that I am thankful.
