Although it is technically after midnight, I’m still up and this post still counts for the 4th, no matter what my husband says 🙂 Also, Rachel thought I was kidding when I said my grateful post would be about her. I wasn’t 🙂
Today, I am grateful for my friend, Rachel.
Tonight, we had a going away party for Rachel. She is moving to Atlanta in about a week and will be hugely missed. I know she will be happy there, as she will be in the same city as her boyfriend, Rob, but I really will miss having her around. She and I have a lot in common, specifically our love for southwest virginia, make up, karaoke, fashion, redheads and Roberts (among other things) 🙂
It has been such a pleasure getting to know her over the past several years. She is so kind, generous, caring and fun – she just has one of those hearts that makes you wish there were more people like her. There have been many nights that have been made into fabulous memories because Rachel was there, especially if there was dancing or karaoke involved!
There will definitely be more memories made with Rachel, as we will go visit her and she will come back to Richmond periodically. I am excited for those new memories.
Rachel – like the book says, your Richmond family will miss you so much, and we wish you all the best in Atlanta and wherever life takes you. We will all always be here for you! Cant wait to come visit!! Love you!
