Gone to Carolina

We said goodbye to many people and places over the last month. One special community was Trinity Episcopal church, where Paul and I got married 6 years ago (today!). The congregation gathered in a circle and gave us a beautiful blessing for our trip and our new life, during the Advent mass on 12/23. We had cake afterward.

Jill and Cindy and Jake came over that night and played "Gone to Carolina in my mind" by James Taylor for me. I cried. I've known Jill and Cynthia for almost 17 years. Little Jake, about 6 weeks old in this picture, is such a bright eyed little fellow. I felt so sad that I would miss many of the little moments of his growing up. We'll be back of course but it's not the same.
