We’re now exactly one month out from our expected departure date. We’re equal parts excited, terrified, and preemptively nostalgic about what we’ll be leaving behind.
I’m writing this from our balcony, which I know I’m going to miss. Every time we’re nervous about leaving, we remind ourselves that New York is probably going to be here when we’re ready to come back – but I’ll never rent this balcony again, which makes sitting here bittersweet.
Saying goodbye to people is even harder. Part of why we wanted to keep a blog was to help stay connected with everyone we’re going to miss. To our friends, family, colleagues, and strangers: hi! We still have phones and e-mail, so don’t be strangers – we’re going to miss you too.
