A bittersweet goodbye...

A bittersweet goodbye...

How do I even start this? I already have tears in my eyes.
My dear sweet friend Brittnie is moving...far away from me.

We may have only been friends for about four years, but this girl has grown to be one of my closest friends ever. We just clicked immediately and I feel like I have known her all my life.

I actually met her through my sister who went to school and cheered at Murray where Brittnie also went to school and danced. 

I remember the first time I met this girl. I went with my sister to visit her in the hospital of her first born. Kind of random, but when I met her, I knew I really liked her.

A few years later? Her and her family made the move to our town and I kinda took her in. Our oldest kids were in the same grade so we started out at the soccer fields together. I invited her to join our group of friends and of course they all loved The Wells. (Who wouldn't?!)

Our relationship just grew stronger and stronger from there. Like I said, we just clicked.
Not only did we just click our kids became best friends as well. Our husbands became good friends. We just all around were great friends with this family.
So when I knew they were looking into moving, I do not know if it was denial or I did not want to believe it until it was true. Then...
As her and I were headed to the movies..she told me.

I think I sat there in shock. I immediately cried.

Selfishly, I am so sad. But on the other hand I could not be any more proud of Adam, Brittnie, and their family. They deserve nothing but the best. They both received such amazing job opportunities that they just can not pass this up. There is a reason they are supposed to live in Dallas.
 All signs point to it....

While we will be miles and miles apart, our daily 1289043 group texts about the most random-silly things will not stop. We will still email each other like all the time when we should really be working. We will send each other stupid videos through Facebook. We will send our daily selfies. That's not going to change.

But I am sooo used to seeing this girl more than I see my family. I mean, we are partners. She is my partner. We are always together. She knows everything about me. She knows everything about my family. We have cried together. We have laughed together. We have done it all....together...
  I trust her. She is my girl. 
She is my best friend

How am I going to make it until July without seeing this girl??? 

I am so thankful that I still have plenty of friends here with me! I told one of them the other day that she absolutely can not leave me and I am making her sign that in blood. Hahaha.

Last weekend, we threw them a going away party. All Texas style and LOTS of dancing. Britt's FAV.

So, here's a recap of the party that was an absolute BLAST!

And a quick little video I just drummed up of some old pictures of B Wells and myself. AND a few dancing videos from the party. As I recorded those videos at the party I got tears in my eyes thinking things just will NOT be the same without her.

And ya know what else the party made me realize?? How many close friends this family has. All their friends joined...old and new to show them support and send them off with a great party!
The amount of friends they had there should show how loved they are. I am so lucky I get to be one of those friends.

Good luck to ya Wells Family!! I wish y'all nothing but the absolute BEST and am really soooo happy for you even though I am a crying mess! Haha.

See you in MEXICO!!!!
Bye Y'all!
