going away (for now)

I have lived in Lexington for the past 5 years and in those 5 wonderful years, a lot of people have gotten so close to my heart. SO CLOSE. A week ago, those wonderful friends came together to celebrate our friendship. (technically, a going away party...but I like to say "celebrate our 5 years of friendship" party)

It was absolutely perfect. So many of my friends stopped by to send their love, best wishes and smiles with me a few days before I made my way to sweet south carolina. Among those friends were a group of sisters. My besties. My loves. They were there. So special to me. Also, my real sister made the trip down too. It was the best.

The Lord has blessed me with an amazing community here in Lexington. He has also blessed me with a sisterhood of loves. I pray a lot that these friendships will remain the same. Some of these girls I have known since the beginning of high school. Some have been in college. But all of them are so dear to me. I will miss each of them. But I pray and make them promise that our friendship will remain the best. I have faith that they will. Like I said, these are my loves....I would hate for our friendships to change.

And so we celebrated our friendships last week. And it was PERFECT.
