Sweet Goodbyes

Whew. Looking through pictures from those last few weeks in the states before moving to Haiti brings me so much joy. I’m seriously overwhelmed at the sweet, sweet relationships with friends & family that the Lord has placed in my life. My last few weeks were spent having several breakfast/lunch/dinner/coffee dates with people, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Also…packing. Lots of packing. 😉 There were several times that I forgot to take a picture, but that’s ok…mental pictures, right? (Office fans, remember Jim & Pam’s wedding episode? *camera click*)

My last weekend in town, I spent all of Saturday with the Burnett family. We went to my favorite place in Denton for lunch, then to Dallas for the afternoon and they surprised me by taking me to Klyde Warren Park (which is simply perfect…pictured above). After, I thought we were heading home to watch a movie and chill for the rest of the night…WRONG. I walked in the door to a HUGE surprise party. Let’s just let the pictures do the talking…

WHEW. what a night. It legitimately was one of the most encouraging nights of my life. I can’t express how much everyone’s love & support truly means to me. Also, thanks for the awesome pictures Grant! I have beautiful friends, right?!

One last Rangers game with these friends (for this season, at least)!

Breakfast dates with my precious dad. We had one every day my last week in the states. Sweet moments!

Photo overload, I know. And I know I’ve been living in Haiti for almost 6 weeks now, so this is a bit delayed. I am absolutely loving things here in Haiti. I am honored that the Lord has chosen for me to be here at this time in my life. I am so thankful. So, so thankful. I just wanted to document these sweet memories of my last few weeks in the states (more so for my sake so that I can look back on these), so thanks for reading along.

Friends & family: You guys are simply the best. I can’t thank you enough. That’s all there is to say.
