A few of my friends threw me a going away party on Thursday night. It was so fun for me to see my coworkers and former roommates meet each other, chit chat, eat, and find common ground- other than me, of course. Thank you Katie, Andrea, and Suzanne for planning it and to all the ladies for the delicious food and for coming! I felt so loved and encouraged!

Friday night my church friends attended a party for me thrown by my sister. Scrumptious food, wine,  and laughter were served. Again, the encouragement and love was overwhelming.  It made me realize how much I have to be thankful for concerning people in my life. I have a ton of loving friends and wise women in my life who have supported me even more since I returned home.

Yesterday my family and I ate some turkey in celebration of an early Thanksgiving. Today, my nephew, Elias, was baptized at church then we went out to lunch. I guess the theme of the last few days has been food!

Tomorrow I'll be leaving to see my friends Chelsea, Kim, Brittany, and Rachel. My wonderful friend Megan came over last week to help me pack. It was a huge burden lifted off of me to have that done early. Thanks Megs! Just a few final touches before I can shut- er... smash... er...jump on- those suitcases. Au revoir!
