For eleven years I have known this day was coming, but that didn't make it any easier. Jess always said she wanted to move back to California since the day we arrived in North Carolina. Guess she's just a California girl.
5 am came very early this morning, probably because we were up until 1 am last night getting everything together. Two days ago I wasn't sure how I was going to make it until today, but being so busy was definitely a distraction.
Wanted to share with you the beautiful painting that my youngest daughter Jenny made for her sister in art class as a going away gift. The words are from a Katy Perry song.
Greyhound picked up 15 boxes on Wednesday~ that was tough for me seeing them go. We filled up Jess' car with the rest of her stuff...odd shaped items such as her wire dress form, laundry basket, bedroom artwork and luggage.
Tim, being the sentimental one, made pancakes for her one more time. He used to make them on Saturday morning and when they had sleepovers. Jenny wasn't happy about getting her photo taken at 5:30 am!
I gave Jess her own glue gun since she always used mine to make her feather clips.
After breakfast it was lots of hugs and I love you's...
And then they were off!
She will be back for Jenny's graduation in two weeks, so I'm holding on to that.
Asking all of you to pray for a safe trip to California for them. They are planning to drive it in three days. Close to 2,500 miles. Pretty ambitious. Today will be a long day and are aiming for Littlerock, Arkansas.
