Saying goodbye really stinks

The latest :

Our great friends the Schaubs left today for San Diego. It was certainly a tearful goodbye and we had to make it quick, much like a band-aid or else we'd all be in shambles. We've grown so close with their family. We were there for the birth of their second child Rylan and have literally seen their 3 year old daughter Quinn grow up before our very eyes. 

It has truly been a blessing being your friend. You have opened my eyes and taught me so much in the past 2 years. I look up to you in so many ways and I can only hope to be half the mother, friend, and wife that you are. You have taught me that silence can be strong and patience is key in every aspect of life. You've taught me to appreciate the details and to take time to notice the details of life. You've taught me that even when you think you just can't make another day, life is a gift and you push through. You've taught me to sensor myself (insert 'snatch' here) and to be mindful of the feelings of others around me. You've shown me that handmade is truly from the heart. Most importantly I thank you for your friendship and endless support. There will never be another like you and I will miss you and your family beyond belief. I refuse to believe this is the last time I will see you therefore I will just say see ya later. I also promised Quinn that she could meet Lucy, so that obviously must be arranged asap. Love you all :-)

So the first of our whiting pines foursome has left us. Goodbyes are absolutely the worst but I know I'll be turning to all these ladies for advice along the way. The next to say goodbye will be Jami and DJ shortly followed by April and Ryan. Matt and I will be holdin' it down here in Florida and I will be delivering Lucy here. It makes me sick to my stomach thinking these people won't be around to see Lucy arrive into our lives but I'm sure we will all cross paths again.
