Last night I was watching season six of Sex and the City, the episode where Carrie says goodbye to Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte to go to Paris with Alexander Petrovsky. I couldn't help but tear up a bit thinking about the amazing friends and family I left behind in Iowa. I truly am blessed to have such wonderful relationships with truly wonderful people.
I hope you all know that I miss you very, very much already and cannot wait until I see you again! It saddens me to think of the things I will miss throughout the next year or two, but I am excited to hear of your many adventures as well as share with you some of mine. You have been a huge part of my life and have made me a better person by just being yourself. I love you!
