I hate saying goodbye.
Friends, real friends, are so hard to come by in this world. And when they move on, even though you knew it was coming, even when you have known from the very beginning that they were only with you for a while, it can be hard to bear.
It was a bittersweet weekend for us, full of blue skies and warm air and real friends – the best that Savannah has to offer. But it was also the weekend we had to say goodbye to our dear friends Melinda and Stuart and their incredible children Anina and Ollie. When they joined us in Savannah two years ago we knew they were merely “on loan” from Australia. Honestly, we had them longer than I ever expected. And now it is time for them to move on to new adventures in Brooklyn and beyond.
I can’t tell you how much we will miss them.
So our amazing group of Savannah friends and neighbors has gotten a little smaller. But, cliched though it may be, we are so much richer for having them in our lives.
