If you follow me at all on Twitter or Facebook you already know I am in the process of moving from North Carolina to the Pacific Northwest.
My last week in Charlotte was more than a little bittersweet and there is so much I will miss about the South but more than anything I will miss the friends and family who have been so wonderful.
A week ago a fantastic group of Charlotte authors (Dahlia Rose, Tressie Lockwood, Lissa Matthews, Sabrina Luna, Crymsyn Hart, and Yvette Hines) bid me adieu at a luncheon at our favorite french bakery, Amelies. It was a special moment that I will treasure forever. I can’t even begin to express how much I will miss these incredible women. (they were so sweet with the gifts too! Check out Alcide!) Unfortunately my group picture turned out too blurry.
The rest of the week was spent in a flurry of packing, cleaning and painting with family and friends as we prepared to leave the house we’d spent the last thirteen years in. (not to mention tearful goodbyes)
With the work done and the cars packed, I took one last picture of the house before the caravan pulled out and we pointed the vehicles west. Look out west coast here we come!
