Leaving the nest.

     Today my daughter finally leaves the nest. When the prospect of her accepting a job almost nine hundred miles away presented itself, I wasn't worried - and then, she accepted it. And all of a sudden everything happened so quickly. The house sold in one day and moving day has arrived. If this was 1955, I'd be freaking out, but today, with Facebook, FaceTime and a two hour plane ride - I'm good.
     It's a great opportunity for Lisa and Scott and they're both so excited about this new chapter in their lives. 
     We moved into that house when Lisa was ten or eleven years old. She's always loved that house, so she and Scott bought it when they got married, but they've also always been drawn to the south, so it seems to be a natural progression for them.
     Of course there'll be a room for ME in their new home, complete with pajamas, make-up and whatever clothes we shop for, for my NC room. Ha ha… I can't wait to take my first trip down! My thoughtful son-in-law gave me a beautiful card with a heartfelt letter - and the means to take those plane rides to visit.
     I'm so proud of them for being so brave and going for their dream. I know they're going to love it!
