{Bye, Mama}

Well, that’s it. My mom’s two-week trip has come to an end. I dropped her off at the airport this morning and it was really, really hard. Harder than I was expecting. I was holding back tears as I took the train into work. Then as soon as I walked into the office I couldn’t hold back anymore and a rush of tears and hopeless sighs came flooding out. It was more than a bit embarrassing, but what can I say? I just can’t believe that her long anticipated trip is over and I won’t see her again for four months. I think tonight I’m going to take a bubble bath and read my new book. Hope that will help cheer me up.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It’s kind of ridiculous (and intimidating) how many photos I have to share with you from the last few weeks. I can’t wait to go through them all and get them up on the blog!

  4. That is such an adorable photo of you and your Mom, that's awesome she was able to come visit you! My parents are coming to visit this weekend, and it's like I already know that the time is going to fly by...it's definitely hard being away from family, time together is NEVER long enough!

  5. I'm so glad that you guys were able to spend two weeks together, but two weeks just isn't enough sometimes! It's always hard saying goodbye. There is no shame in tears! I'm the same way when I have to say goodbye to my mom.

  11. Aww I totally understand that feeling! When my parents left after their visit I had a really hard time. Try to remember all the new and fun memories you made together in your new home and before you know it you'll be seeing your mom again :)

  16. Just think of all the fun you had together! I'm lucky enough that my mom visits Amsterdam often for work but there's always a tinge of heartbreak when she leaves. Since mothers remind us so much of home it's just one of those little things that makes the distance suddenly feel huge.

  17. I am sorry--I know it sucks.

    A bubble bath and a book sounds like a good plan though--and maybe add a bar of chocolate :)

  20. Aw :( my husband and I moved across the country in January and my mom will be visiting for the first time in June! I'm excited, but I know I'll be just as sad as you when it's time for her to leave. Cheer up! And thoroughly enjoy your bubble bath and book :)
