Goodbye Austin

Wow.  We leave tomorrow!  I’m sitting here at Jared’s house, just finished cleaning, and it’s starting to sink in.  Wow.  I’m sorry, I  had to say it again.  We will be leaving for Houston in a couple of hours.
Our final going away party was on Saturday.  It was sooooo much fun!  Kelly and Sidni are the best hostesses ever.  It was so great to see everyone and have such a good time!  A keg of Lone Star, a vat of Kelly’s famous lemon drops, Sweet Tea Vodka….oh yeah, we had fun:)  I really do have the best friends in the world.  I’m so sorry Kim was sick from either allergies or her flu shot, but she hung in there!  However, the good time made for a VERY rough Sunday.  After finally going to bed at 5am, I woke up with one of the worst hangovers EVER.  But, I will say, the delicious banana pancakes and eggs Kelly made us did help.  Yummy.  After I said my goodbyes, got sick a few times, cried for a few hours in my room, I was ready to start tying up all my loose ends (around 5pm).  I had dinner with Leah, took the Honda out to my grandmother’s in Taylor, and then headed back to Jared’s where Tina helped me pack.  Looks like everything is going to fit! Heck yeah! I then said goodbye to Tina (tear….) and headed to bed. What a day…
Jared woke me up this morning for coffee and some wonderful, inspiring words.  Gosh I love that man! I’m so glad I was able to stay with him and feed off his positive energy.  I will see him again when he comes to visit us in Thailand!!
So now I’m here with Izzy….letting it sink in.  This is so crazy.  I’m so excited that I get to fulfill this wonderful dream with Kim!  We really did it!  It’s been such a long road to get here.  But I have learned to so much about myself in the past 2.5 years.  I know that my persistance, determination and discipline that I have basically mastered, will really help me along the way.  I am so anxious to see what all else I will learn about myself in the next year. 
I just want to say thank you to all of the people that have helped me and put up with me the past few years as I worked toward this.  All of my friends and family have been so supportive and motivating.  I couldn’t have done this without all of you! And Kim especially.  She really is a phenomenal person.  I have  the best sister in the world.  Love you lady:)
