looking forward.

In a matter of months, this will be me. Embraced in the arms of my best friend, reciting "I do," and beginning a new adventure. I did not expect the past year to look as it has, but I would not change a single detail if I could. A new city, a challenge and many big steps will end with a summer leading up to marriage. In my most fragile state, I feel as though I conquered more than I ever have. I shall leave New York City as a proud "New Yorker," returning to the South to be the Belle of the only ball I want to attend. The end of yet another season is almost over. The same measure of nervousness and  nostalgia has come over me in the past week or so. The Winnie the Pooh quote has been said many times lately, but it is true. "How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard." But what is even better is that good things wait on the opposite end of this journey as well.
