You know ole’ Billy Shakespeare says it perfectly – parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say goodnight til it be morrow.
This morning Sadie and I drove Jamie to the airport. Her 5 day trip with us came to an end. We had such a wonderful time. As much as I miss my family in SoCal, I have to admit that I very much enjoyed having this real quality time with my sister. While we lived in the same city for the past 10 years, we never spent 5 days uninterrupted together like that. I’m really diggin the designated hang out time that living apart provides.
But our farewell was not so much sorrow, it was moreover on the sweet side. Because I get to see her tomorrow too!!!
Weird, I know. But we are flying back to LA tomorrow for her engagement party. And there will be entirely too much love and celebration going on tomorrow that even when it comes time to leave and head back to the airport (2 flights in one day, ugh!) that there will be no tears and long embraces. I know we will see each other again very soon.
I mean, Sadie does turn 1 in just a few weeks… and there might just be a birthday party being planned if you know what I mean. Shhh… don’t tell Sadie!
While Jamie was here we spent time walking, beaching, boating, lots of eating, shopping, talking and bar going. I enjoyed showing her around my new home. And enjoyed watching Sadie cling to her and love her like she was her best friend of all time – it was too cute.
Look at Jamie workin’ it. She’s just walking through the farmers market and had no idea I even took this picture. She is just naturally that statuesque. (don’t be mad at me for taking this photo Jamie!!)
One thing I could’ve lived without… Jamie is so good with Sadie and kept her cracking up the entire time she was here. Now I am on like double duty trying to keep her entertained like Aunt Jam Jam did. Great. Thanks James, thanks for setting the bar that much higher.
