I awoke this morning with all four of us cuddled together on the king mattress on the floor in an empty room with just a single blanket thrown over us. Today is the day! Our flight to London leaves in several hours. As I was lying there while everyone was still sound asleep I couldn't help but look around at the bare walls and the emptiness of the room and think about the day we moved into that apartment over four years ago. Jason and I were newly weds. The future was wide open and we felt like we could conquer the world as long as we had each other.

Who knows where the future will lead us. But this morning as I lay reflecting on where we've come from and where the future might take us I was happy with the knowledge that whatever happens - the four of us are in this together. We are a family! And tomorrow when I wake up on a different continent I will still have the people I love the very most by my side.

It's so lonely here! I feel sort of lost and sad everytime I drive/walk by your place. So sad to lose you. Your sentiments made me cry. I wish you guys the best of luck in London, and you'll bless so many lives. Can't wait till Christmas! By the way, Victoria looks so big and beautiful!
