This past weekend was such a blur, I don't even know where to begin! I arrived in Kansas City Friday afternoon after waking up at 4am and just not being able to go back to sleep. I set out on the drive just before 5am and got coffee at one of the stops. Big mistake! Instead of my normal 3 stops for the entire trip, I had to stop 5 times to go to the bathroom!
Saturday I felt so blessed to spend some time with great girlfriends from college. Even though I live in the same town as most of them, we hardly see each other. Two of us are moving to Colorado Springs. I am so thankful that Rachel will be out there too!
These are just a few of the girls. One friend's husband called it "ditch the dorks weekend," which I have found incredibly funny, and laugh every time I think about the phrase.
Sunday was the Open House for my graduation (yes, I know I don't technically graduate until next weekend, but the timing was better this weekend). Once again, I felt so loved and blessed by all the people that showed up to congratulate and support me. Unfortunately, I was busy talking with everyone, and I wasn't able to take pictures (bad!). You'll just have to imagine the general splendor of the event.
All of these things have caused me to think about how much I'll miss Kansas City, even though I've been so excited to leave. It will probably take me years to develop the caliber of friendships that I have here. I'm just trusting that God is sovereign in the midst of it all!
