This man of mine officially left for Texas today... and after 2 years of constant goodbyes with the military and a trip scheduled for next weekend, I thought another goodbye would be no big deal. But then I watched him tear up as he hugged our nephew Colt and I went into stage 5 ugly crying.
My family is big, loud, and VERY present in our life... I've never lived more than 2 hours away from my hometown, and now we're moving half way across the country. I'm excited for our new adventure, but my heart breaks when I think of leaving the people we love so much. Our nephews have become such a huge joy in our lives and we're both struggling with reality that daily visits will no longer be a part of our routine. Long distance aunties and uncles, how do you stay connected to your little loves when there's so much space between you? Besides laying in a puddle of their blankets and toys, which is currently my coping mechanism of choice.
